It often happens that a throw from a fielder hits the batter and deviates after colliding resulting in some extra runs for the batting side. In the game against Rajasthan Royals, Virat Kohli showed a brilliant piece of sportsmanship as he denied a run after throw from fielder deflected of his body.

Rajasthan Royals are up against Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Qualifier 2 and are in a strong position. RR opted to bowl first after winning the toss. RCB were hoping for Virat Kohli to play a big knock for them but he departed in the second over after being dismissed by Prasidh Krishna on 7.  Kohli continued his lean patch with the knock but he won the heart of the spectators with a display of sportsmanship. 

Trent Boult was bowling the first over the innings and he bowled a delivery straying down the pads on the second ball. Virat Kohli was on strike and he flicked it square of the wicket. The fielder in the 30-yard circle took an aim at the non-striker's end but the throw hit Kohli. The ball then deviated off his body but Kohli denied taking a run on over-throw.
