Watch: Smriti Mandhana takes a hilarious portrait of Virat Kohli

Smriti Mandhana, Virat Kohli

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Smriti Mandhana left many divided with her gesture during the lively ‘Pictionary’ session on the franchise’s podcast. The captain gave a strange portrait of Virat Kohli and it caused a lot of laughter.

Smriti Mandhana during the session had to draw what was written on index cards and the presenter Mr. Nags (Danish Sait) had to guess it. The RCB captain first drew a crown and then created a cartoon character reminiscent of Virat Kohli. She also drew the batter’s trademark beard.

At first, Mr. Nags (Danish Sait) could not guess the portrait despite Smriti Mandhana’s efforts. In the end, the presenter guessed it, but it caused laughter from both Smriti Mandhana and Nags, as they posed with the drawing. Then, the batter also hilariously apologized to the male batter for his artistic skills.

Here is the video:

However, the fun for Smriti Mandhana didn’t end there. Another hilarious moment during the podcast caught the attention of many. She was left in splits after understanding his suggestions for her RCB teammate Ellyse Perry on mice, chips, peri-peri powder and football.

Royal Challengers Bangalore women have played a stellar brand of cricket so far in the Women’s Premier League (WPL) 2024. After having a horrendous campaign last year, they have made a stirring statement in the ongoing edition with their blistering performances.

RCB Women kicked off their WPL 2024 campaign with a thrilling 2-run win over UP Warrioz. If this was not enough, they defeated the Gujarat Giants for 8 wickets to win their second game of the season at Trott. They would want to extend their winning streak and take the third game.

Happy with the way the crowd participated, big shout out to them too – Smriti Mandhana after RCB’s win over GGT

Smriti Mandhana after the victory over GGT applauded the crowd at the M Chinnswamy stadium. He praised his team’s effort with bat and ball and said they had worked hard. During the post-match presentation, he explained:

“Happy with the way the crowd participated, big shout out to them too. There was no message, keep it simple, look at the ball and react. Sophie and I do better when we’re not thinking. The last game had more to do with the way we saw the first innings. We watched the last game here, there was something for the Pacers. Renuka and Sophie can swing the ball, Renuka the inswinger and Sophie the outswinger were both brilliant.

“S Meghana has had some good seasons domestically and the last game was brilliant. Even today she is very calm and she can hit with a good rhythm and anchor the innings. In the last year she has done a lot of work on what kind of equipment we need. Thanks to the support staff and management for this.”

RCB will next be seen in action when they take on Delhi Capitals Women on February 29.
