Virat Kohli’s Heartwarming Gesture Falls Flat: Smiti Mandhana’s Revelation

In a thrilling finale of the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024, Richa Ghosh’s match-winning lofted drive for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) against Delhi Capitals sparked jubilant celebrations among the players. Amidst the euphoria, a heartwarming moment occurred as former India captain and RCB men’s team skipper, Virat Kohli, made a video call to RCB Women’s captain Smiti Mandhana.

The gesture, initially hailed by RCB fans on social media, took an unexpected turn when Mandhana revealed that she couldn’t hear Kohli amidst the loud cheers from the crowd at the Arun Jaitley Stadium. Despite the miscommunication, Mandhana expressed her gratitude towards Kohli, recalling a “little pep talk” he gave during the previous WPL season.

Mandhana highlighted Kohli’s enduring support for the RCB franchise, spanning over 15 years, and acknowledged the impact of his encouragement on both a personal and team level. She expressed her intention to engage in a conversation with Kohli when the teams convene in Bengaluru.

In a post-match press conference, Mandhana disclosed the women’s team’s participation in the RCB Unbox event scheduled for March 19 in Bengaluru. This event will coincide with the kick-off of the IPL 2024 season, where Faf du Plessis-led RCB will face defending champions Chennai Super Kings on March 22.

Mandhana’s revelation sheds light on the camaraderie and mutual support within the RCB franchise, bridging the gap between the men’s and women’s teams. Despite the communication glitch, Kohli’s gesture underscores the spirit of solidarity and encouragement that defines the RCB community.

As the excitement builds for the upcoming IPL season, the convergence of the men’s and women’s teams at the RCB Unbox event promises to be a momentous occasion, symbolizing unity and camaraderie in the world of cricket.
