India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli is renowned for his fitness levels on the field as well as his ability to effect run-outs and take catches with ease.
Therefore, it came as quite the shock when Kohli dropped not one but two catches during RCB's Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab.
The first drop came in the end of the 17th over. KL Rahul - who went on to score a century - attempted a second consecutive six off Dale Steyn and found Kohli in the deep, but he overran himself and put the catch down.
The next one came in the beginning of the 19th over. Rahul once again went for a big shot, this time off Navdeep Saini, but skied it and it was going towards Kohli at long-off. However, the skipper inexplicably put down what was a regulation catch.
Naturally, social media had a field day reacting to the Indian skipper dropping not one but two catches in such a short space of time. Check out some of the best reactions below:
