  • RCB still have a mathematical chance of reaching the IPL play-offs

Over 8.1: 92/0, Royal Challengers Bangalore wins by 10 Wickets.Ankit Rajpoot starts the over with a no-ball and Kohli Thumps a boundary on the next ball taking the win for his team. They, however, switched gears from the next over, accumulating 25 runs off the subsequent couple of overs, with the visitor's scorecard reading 36/0.

Royal Challengers Bangalore: Virat Kohli (capt), Quinton de Kock, Brendon McCullum, A B de Villiers, Sarfaraz Khan, Mandeep Singh, Chris Woakes, Washington Sundar, Kulwant Khejroliya, Umesh Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Colin de Grandhomme, Moeen Ali, Manan Vohra, Aniket Choudhary, Navdeep Saini, Murugan Ashwin, Pawan Negi, Mohammed Siraj, Corey Anderson, Parthiv Patel (wk), Aniruddha Joshi, Pavan Deshpande, Tim Southee. Their stars are starting to click with the bat and the bowlers are executing their plans as well.

However, the problem for Punjab is that they arrive into the match on the back of two consecutive defeats and face a team that will be without pressure. KL Rahul, KXIP's topscorer with 558 runs, played some exquisite shots in the beginning and looked set. Meanwhile, their opponents for Monday's encounter - Kings XI Punjab - seem to have lost the grip as the tournament advances and are in the third place with six wins from 11 games. Umesh broke the back bone by removing Rahul and Gayle in one over and then returned to nip out Tye, 4-0-23-3 Mohit Sharma, right handed bat, comes to the crease.

The middle-order has been an issue all season but that is not because they haven't tried many things. Their bowling and batting both fired in the last game, which might prompt them to settle to the same unit again.

Kohli had praised ABD for forging a mammoth partnership during the match against Delhi Daredevils. They defeated Punjab in the reverse fixture early in the tournament, albeit when Gayle was not in the team.

Virat Kohli is a cricketer of rare instinct and intensity.

The hitter from West Indies has been hitting the ball hard and far amassing fast runs in the process. That means that although RCB has had a stop-start season, Kohli is still in the running for the Orange Cap.

Just a few hours after the game, Virat Kohli had taken to the micro-blogging site, Twitter to share how much he enjoyed batting with De Villiers and wrote, "Have always loved batting with this guy".

Quotes " I would say we have got ourselves into an interesting situation. And when they do, like against DD, RCB end up on the winning side more often than not. When the players took to the field against KXIP, all of them were high in intensity. KXIP will have an advantage today as they are playing at their home ground i.e. Holkar Cricket Stadium at Indore. And Ashwin and boys have to win both. RCB on the other hand will enter this game without the weight of expectation and could actually give a fight in tonight's game.
