Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Virat Kohli plays a shot during IPL 2018 match

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. After a great start, Kings XI are slowly slipping down the table.

They will hope their stand against Delhi can yet spark a late run to the play-offs.

Meanwhile, Royal Challengers Bangalore are also struggling in this season and will be knocked out of the tournament if they lose another game. Their stars are starting to click with the bat and the bowlers are executing their plans as well. They have two games remaining. Punjab batting clearly looks over reliant on KL Rahul and a lot depends tonight on the form of the middle order.

Lauding his bowlers, particularly Umesh Yadav, for making good use of the new ball, Kohli agreed that removing Lokesh Rahul and Chris Gayle in the same over was crucial for his team. Sunsrisers Hyderabad have already booked their slot in the play-offs, while Delhi Daredevils have suffered elimination, which leaves six teams still in contention for the upcoming stages of the league.

The 2017 victor was Kazuo Ishiguro , the Japanese-born British author of "The Remains of the Day" and " Never Let Me Go ". What followed was a wave of resignations, including Ms Frostenson and the head of the academy, Prof Sara Danius.

Punjab have a tournament so far which can be easily divided into parts which is done by a one week break which was given to them. However, he was rewarded in third over of his spell and the credit should be given to the skipper Virat Kohli who gave him an extra over.

"We were not clinical with the ball, but these guys played well". That means that although RCB has had a stop-start season, Kohli is still in the running for the Orange Cap.

By the time Amit Mishra removed him, he had scored 70 off just 40 deliveries with three sixes and seven Villiers was then starved of strike and he kept on losing partners as Mandeep (13) and Sarfraz (11) departed quickly. We aren't going to get too ahead of ourselves. And when they do, like against DD, RCB end up on the winning side more often than not. Parthiv Patel is on fire! While Patel picked the gaps in the deep cover region as well as the fine leg area, Kohli loved to play shots around the park.

IPL 11 Match 48 KXIP vs RCB at the Holkar Cricket Stadium in Indore: Hello and welcome to score updates from match number 48 between KXIP and RCB at the Holkar Stadium in Indore.
