Kohli remained not-out on 33 from 28 deliveries with just one boundary and shared an unbeaten 100-run partnership with De Villiers in just 52 deliveries. In reply, KKR never really got going in the chase. They failed to find regular boundaries and lost wickets frequently and had lost the game even before the 12th over.
Virat Kohli praised his Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) teammates for their ‘tremendous efforts’ to beat Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) by 82 runs in IPL 2020 on Monday. Kohli and co put up a completely dominant performance against the two-time champions and pipped KKR to third in the IPL 2020 points table. RCB now have five wins from their opening seven games and are equal on points with table leaders Mumbai Indians and second-placed Delhi Capitals (all have 10 points each). The win was also a second consecutive victory for Kohli’s men and he was pumped up and full of energy throughout the game. .
Kohli later took to social media to praise his team for the wonderful performance. “Tremendous effort by the boys. We march on,” Kohli wrote on Twitter alongside a collage of pictures from the game. The RCB and team India captain had also reserved special praise for AB de Villiers whose whirlwind innings of 73 not-out from just 33 deliveries changed the game for RCB and helped them record a big win. .
De Villiers, who came to the crease with RCB on 94/2 in the 13th over smashed six maximums and five boundaries and registered a half-century in just 23 deliveries to help RCB post 194 runs on the scoreboard after Kohli had opted to bat first. The former South African batsman took most of KKR pacers to the cleaners and reserved special treatment for Andre Russell, who went for 51 from his four overs.
