A defining moment unfolded when Virat Kohli, named Player of the Match, handed over the coveted trophy to the coach, Rahul Dravid.

Known for his composed demeanor, Dravid unleashed a rare roar of elation, symbolizing the release of years of dedication and perseverance.

In a touching gesture, Dravid affectionately kissed Kohli on the cheeks, signifying the end of their journey together in Indian cricket and their emotional tenure at RCB.

It's noteworthy that when Virat Kohli made his IPL debut in 2008, Rahul Dravid was the captain of RCB. Throughout Kohli's early years in the Indian cricket team, he shared the dressing room with Dravid.

Despite their formidable partnership, both in Team India and RCB, they hadn't secured a trophy together as players.

This victory not only marked a personal triumph for Dravid but also underscored his impactful tenure as India's coach. Having coached through highs and lows, Dravid's leadership culminated in a historic win, leaving an indelible mark on Indian cricket.
