IPL 2022: Punjab Kings’ Instagram Post For Virat Kohli Is A Huge Hit. Punjab Kings are winning hearts away from the field, with their Instagram tribute to Virat Kohli going viral.
Punjab Kings defeated Royal Challengers Bangalore by 54 runs on Friday night at the Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, keeping their hopes of qualifying for the IPL 2022 playoffs alive. The big win over RCB also gave PBKS a much-needed boost in net run-rate. Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone shone with the bat for PBKS, while Kagiso Rabada shone with the ball. Apart from their on-field performance, the Punjab Kings are also winning hearts off the field, with their Instagram tribute to Virat Kohli going viral.
The Punjab Kings bowlers came under early pressure in the second innings, with Virat Kohli looking in good form. Rabada, on the other hand, dismissed the RCB star for 20 off 14 balls.
Kohli’s poor batsmanship continued in IPL 2022, but to their credit, Punjab Kings had some words of encouragement for the star batter.
