In 18.5 overs SRH got the victory against DD and they lost only 1 wickets and won by 9 wickets so far. Kohli struck six fours and two towering sixes during his 28-ball unbeaten knock, while Parthiv's innings was laced with seven boundaries. Their innings was wrapped by 15.1 overs.

Brendon McCullum and Washington Sundar were amongst the few players who turned up for the optional nets session on the eve of the game, but he might yet be kept out as Daniel Vettori talked up the balance that the inclusion of Parthiv Patel and Moeen Ali has given RCB. Hoping to carry this form forward. I feel that if I don't do that, I'm lacking in confidence.

We are in the nothing-to-lose zone and it will work well for us. While a victory in the last fixture guarantees a top 4 finish, a loss would enable other teams to pounce on the opportunity. It will be interesting to see which one we get on the morrow when a top bowling side meets team that has two wonderful contemporary batsmen. The Bangalore-based franchise, who were reeling at the bottom last week, is now two wins away from a possible playoff spot.

Yesterday's game was an important one for Royal Challengers Bangalore. They lost the toss and were promptly sent in by Kohli.

KXIP slipped out of the top four on the points table after the crushing defeat.

Bangalore will be up against leaders Sunrisers Hyderabad at home and against Rajasthan Royals in Jaipur and the Indian skipper feels that both teams will be wary about RCB as their "nothing-to-lose" mentality makes them risky. Couldn't have asked for a more clinical performance. But it looked as if they had surrendered against a rejuvenated RCB side.

Following his retirement, he ran a successful undertaker's business in Huddersfield before retiring in 1997 to Halifax. "He is a World Cup victor and played in the last England team that had four, maybe five, world class players".

Virat Kohli (C) celebrates with his teammates after the fall of a wicket. We knew we could bank on that factor.

However, due to their extremely busy schedules, Virushka (as they are fondly called) is bound to spend some time apart.

While their wedding came as a bit of a surprise, the A-list couple gave us some major couple goals even while dating.

When Umesh returned in the 13th over, which was his last, he also had Andrew Tye caught behind for a duck and finished with the same figures in both legs against Kings XI - 3 for 23. That has been the story for us.

"It wasn't a professional effort at all.it's the bowlers who have got us the points". It was very simple. The Kiwi pacer has had average returns taking only five wickets off six games at an economy rate of over 8.50. Most of these guys have played for a long time now, need their experience to count. But what has been truly outstanding for SRH is their diverse bowling attack.
