A video has gone viral on social media in which a fan could be seen getting thrashed by security staff. Social media users have claimed that the fan in the video is the same person who touched Virat Kohli‘s feet and hugged him on the ground as Royal Challengers Bengaluru took on Punjab Kings in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 match on Monday. The fan was taken out of the ground after he breached security to meet Kohli on the pitch. Now, the viral video has claimed that he was beaten up by security staff at the stadium itself.

In the video, the security staff could be seen hitting the fan brutally. However, whether it’s the same fan or not, hasn’t been ascertained yet. Here’s the video:

As for the match, Kohli registered a unique record during the match. The opener completed his 100th T20 fifty-plus score, becoming the first Indian and overall only third player to do so. In the match, the 35-year-old was back at his vintage best following a disappointing game against the Chennai Super Kings (CSK). He scored 77 runs in 49 balls, with 11 fours and two sixes.

He scored his runs at a strike rate of over 157. In 378 appearances, Virat has scored 12,092 runs at an average of 41.26, with eight centuries and 92 fifties. His best score is 122*. Virat is India’s leading T20 run getter and overall sixth. In terms of most fifty-plus scores, above Virat are: West Indies batting great Chris Gayle (110 fifty-plus scores including 22 centuries) and Australian great David Warner (109 fifty-plus scores including eight centuries).

Coming to the match, Punjab Kings (PBKS) saw their batters getting starts but none of them could convert it into something big. Skipper Shikhar Dhawan (45 in 37 balls with five fours and a six), Jitesh Sharma (27 in 20 balls with a four and two sixes) and Sam Curran (23 in 17 balls) played decent knocks, but on a batting friendly Chinnaswammy track, PBKS could muster only 176/6 in 20 overs.
