In a delightful twist during the RCB vs PBKS clash in IPL 2024, Virat Kohli found himself unable to contain his laughter after spotting a doppelganger of his fellow Indian cricketer, Shikhar Dhawan, among the crowd. The amusing incident occurred in the 18th over, as Kohli, strolling near the boundary ropes, exchanged waves with what he thought was Dhawan, only to realize it was a fan dressed in PBKS attire bearing a striking resemblance to the left-handed batsman.

The match itself showcased an intriguing battle, with RCB, under the leadership of Faf du Plessis, winning the toss and electing to field first. Despite an early setback with the loss of opener Jonny Bairstow, PBKS found stability through Dhawan and Prabhsimran Singh. Dhawan’s composed knock of 45 off 37 deliveries, supported by Prabhsimran’s brisk 25, guided PBKS to a competitive total of 176/6 in their allotted 20 overs.
