New Delhi: Embattled Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli on Sunday showed his darker side during their IPL match against visiting Kolkata Knight Riders.
Defending a low total of 158, Kohli & Co were blown away by the Sunil Narine-Chris Lynn opening stand. But the hosts fought back to take four quick wickets to give themselves an outside chance in a match, which was though to be over by the end of KKR's power-play.
Then, towards the end of the match, an umpire goof-up denied a genuine wicket, which drove Kohli mad. What followed was a sight, Kohli's fans would have never seen before.

Yusuf Pathan nicked the fourth ball of 15th over, bowled by Yuzvendra Chahal. Kedar Jadhav took a clean catch behind the wicket, prompting RCB players to go for huge shot. But the umpire turned down the appeal.
An enraged Kohli charged towards the umpire, even as his team-mates showed their disapproval of the verdict.
As it happened, replays showed Pathan getting a huge under-edge.
