Kohli was electric as RCB thrashed 74 from the final 5 overs of their innings to reach 169-4 after they had been restricted to 95-4 right after 15 overs by a previously self-disciplined Chennai attack.

Mike Curran’s 18th over was broke for 24, during which Narayan Jagadeesan dropped the ball over the string for six as he tried to capture Shivam Dube.

Dube (22no off 14) played his component in a rapid 76-run stand along with Kohli, who completed a 38th IPL fifty from 39 golf balls with one of his eight limitations.

Chennai limped in order to 132-8 in reply with their expectations of a dramatic finish all-but finished when Jagadeesan (33 off 28) was run out in the 15th as well as MS Dhoni (10 off 6 balls) was caught at long-off to close the 16th.

Ambati Rayudu top-scored along with 42 but was contained by a great RCB bowling unit, with Bob Morris – who replaced Moeen Ali for RCB – getting 3-19 and a run out on his first appearance for the franchise and fellow seamer Navdeep Saini shipping just eighteen runs from his four overs.

RCB’s power-packed playing baseball unit had failed to really get started themselves for the first three sectors of their innings.

Aaron Finch (2) was bowled simply by Deepak Chahar to bring a skittish nine-ball innings to an end, whilst AB de Villiers (0) snicked Shardul Thakur behind for a second-ball duck.

Devdutt Padikkal – dismissed by Thakur within the same over De Villiers dropped – hit 33 in a half-century stand with Kohli but it had been only once Kohli and Dube joined up with forces that the RCB innings captivated.

Kohli nailed 3 sixes in the space of 6 balls as he topped the seventy two he had struck earlier in the competition against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi.

The RCB captain then saw spinner Wa Sundar account for Faf du Plessis (8) and Shane Watson (14) in the powerplay – the latter bowled on the sweep one ball right after using the same shot to score the boundary.

Rayudu plus Jagadeesan added 64 for the 3rd wicket but not at a rate that concerned RCB and just as Jagadeesan started to find his range, he dropped to a direct hit from Morris at mid-off after a lazy try to make his ground.

Morris then had Curran captured behind on review for a fantastic duck, before taking two wickets in his final over as Chennai slipped to a fifth defeat within seven games and RCB caused it to be four victories from six.
