Watch: Virat Kohli hits a chair with his bat in anger following his dismissal against Sunrisers Hyderabad
Indian captain Virat Kohli has some serious anger issues at times. The Indian captain is an aggressive personality by nature and he usually doesn't hide his raw emotions. The 32-year-old just lets it out because that's his true character. The cricket fraternity has witnessed several moments of Kohli losing his temper on the match.
During the IPL match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Sunrisers Hyderabad, Virat Kohli was angry about himself. Earlier, Devdutt Padikkal and Virat Kohli stepped out to bat with intent. But all their hopes were crashed after Bhuvneshwar Kumar dismissed the Karnataka batsman for just 11 runs.
Shahbaz Nadeem got rid of Shahbaz Ahmed in the first ball of the 7th over. RCB complicated themselves at the start. On the other hand, RCB captain Virat Kohli didn't get off to his usual best as he played patiently from the word go. The skipper scored 33 off 29 balls including 4 boundaries.
Virat Kohli smashes a chair in anger
During the first ball of the 13th over, RCB captain Virat Kohli was dismissed by West Indies' all-rounder Jason Holder. Just as when he was looking to taking his batting to the next level, he was dismissed at the wrong time. He made his way back to the dressing room.
After he reached the dugout, he was caught on camera smashing a chair with his willow in anger. Kohli's anger was there for everyone to see. The video clip of the incident spread like wildfire across social media platforms. Kohli lost his wicket as he top-edged one while he attempted to whack the ball toward the leg side.

Meanwhile, SRH all-rounder Vijay Shankar sprinted in from deep and took a marvellous catch as Jason Holder dismissed the RCB captain. Glenn Maxwell provided a ray of strong hope for RCB by scoring 59 off 41 balls including 5 fours and 3 sixes at a strike rate of 143.90.
Jason Holder took 3 wickets while Rashid Khan took 2 wickets to his name for SRH. In response to RCB's modest target, SRH failed to chase down the target despite having chances to finish off the game. David Warner scored 54 off 37 balls including 7 fours and a six. This was the only positive for SRH as they lost the game by just 6 runs. Shahbaz Ahmed took 3 wickets for RCB.
