Jasprit Bumrah's box office contest with Virat Kohli on Sunday encapsulated the star quality that graces the IPL. It came as Kohli was opening the batting for the Royal Challengers Bangalore, and Bumrah the bowling for the Mumbai Indians. The Indian pacer went to the short stuff early, looking to test his captain with his extra pace. The first got big on Kohli, finding his top edge but sailing over the keeper for four. The second bouncer was picked up by India's captain, swatted over the fine leg boundary for six.
