WATCH: Virat Kohli's Imitation Of Khaleel Ahmed's Celebratory Gesture Will Leave You In Splits

Royal Challengers Bangalore overcame Sunrisers Hyderabad by four wickets at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium to end their disappointing campaign on a high. Just like other games, even this game had its fair share of standout moments. From RCB skipper Virat Kohli's lofted shot for a six to Manish Pandey's lucky escape against Yuzvendra Chahal while trying to work the ball towards mid-wicket and Shimron Hetmyer's debatable catch that got rid of Manish Pandey, it was an interesting match. However, there was another standout moment that featured RCB skipper Virat Kohli and Khaleel Ahmed.

After dismissing Kohli, Khaleel Ahmed had a celebratory moment on the field. After Kohli had clobbered Khaleel for a flurry of boundaries and taking him to the cleaners with a lofted shot, the 21-year old pacer had the last laugh when he forced Kohli to go for a big shot by bowling a good length delivery outside off stump. Kohli got an edge and Wriddhiman Saha made no mistakes behind the stumps. After dismissing his Indian captain, the youngster started celebrating with a hand gesture.

However, after the game, Virat Kohli returned the favour back by mocking Khaleel's celebratory style as both Kohli and Khaleel burst into laughter. This hilarious video was posted on Twitter. Take a look:

By the virtue of this win, RCB not only ended their disappointing campaign on a high but have also played a perfect spoilsport to SRH's playoff hopes. The 2016 winners should now hope that the two-time winner Kolkata Knight Riders lose their final group game against Mumbai Indians in order to seal a playoff berth.

Chasing a target of 176, RCB were in a spot of bother at 20/3. Shimron Hetmyer ( 75) and Gurkeerat Singh (65) added 144 runs for the fourth wicket. Riding on their splendid knocks, RCB got to the target with four balls to spare.
