PL 2019: Twitter hails Shreyas Gopal as he gets Virat Kohli & AB de Villiers out in the same innings, again – Rajasthan Royals’ Shreyas Gopal dented Royal Challengers Bangalore’s top order before Parthiv Patel (67), Marcus Stoinis (31*) and Moeen Ali (18*) took them to 158/4 in their 20 overs.
Gopal removed Virat Kohli (23), AB de Villers (13) and Shimron Hetmyer (1) in his first, second and third over respectively after Ajinkya Rahane won the toss and elected to bowl first at the Sawai Mansingh stadium on Tuesday.
This is not the first time Gopal has taken the wickets of Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers in the same innings. He had taken the wickets of these two batsmen last season at the Chinnaswamy Stadium too. Twitter hailed his bowling performance:

Shreyas Gopal has bowled to Virat Kohli twice in the IPL, dismissed him on both the occasions.
He has bowled to AB de Villiers on three occasions and has dismissed him all three times! #RRvRCB #IPL2019
