Kings XI Punjab and Royal Challengers Bangalore got down to play with strategies and counter-strategies when they clashed on Wednesday. After KXIP captain Ravichandran Ashwin won the toss and elected to bowl, RBC openers Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli got down to banking on Bengaluru's Chinnaswamy stadium's sporting pitch that would favour the batsmen. KL Rahul, who along with his playmates, was planning to restrict the opponents to 160-180 runs, had a slip of the tongue at an absolutely wrong time!
Moments before the slip of tongue happened, Virat Kohli was dropped by Hardus Viljoen. As commentator Danny Morrison wired him in, the player was discussing KXIP' strategy when Parthiv Patel hit a boundary and a spontaneous 'f*ck' slipped out of Rahul's mouth, only to make him regret it moments later. The commentators laughingly remarked how Rahul was appreciating Patel's performance. Remembering that he was wired and in conversation, he immediately checked whether this went on record and the camera. He wished the answer was 'no', but a laughing Morrison said, 'yes'!
