Virat Kohli was in quite some touch last night after a responsible knock with the bat as he scored 31 off just 30 balls in order to help RCB knit together a crucial partnership for the opening stand that garnered 62 runs also proving to be the bedrock of RCB’s crucial win.
It wasn’t just Virat Kohli’s heroics that got them in safe zone but skipper Faf du Plessis was also in decent touch scoring 44 runs from just 40 balls to help RCB come up with a warring total, that initially seemed to be slightly below par.

However, a pumped up display from the RCB bowlers led by an incoming Josh Hazelwood who would go onto bag figures of 2 for 15 from his 3 overs accompanied by the likes of Karn Sharma who would register figures of 2 for 20 to destabilize the chase for the Super Giants.
Everything was fine until that moment where RCB secured a thrilling win against the LSG in a low-scoring display where their bowlers went all guns blazing and restricted the opposition 18 runs short of the stipulated total.
This is what Simon Doull had to say about Virat Kohli
However, it was post the game where it all went downtown as Virat Kohli and Gautam Gambhir went head on against each other and were almost about to trade blows had it not been for the intervention of four fine gentlemen namely Glenn Maxwell, Faf du Plessis, KL Rahul and Amit Mishra.
Albeit no physical blows were traded, each other’s words were more than sharp for a razor that would slice each other from the center. A few savoured it while others were happy to let go. Simon Doull, who was pretty cross with Virat Kohli had an important message, rather observation about the former Indian and the RCB captain.
The Kiwi cricket expert said, “He [Virat Kohli] was very passionate tonight, wasn’t he? Every wicket that went down, it was like he was up. I mean, he plays that way in general terms. I think that’s been one of the great things about the way he has played. If he needs that passion to get himself going, I’ve got no problem with that.”
