De Villiers (358 runs) is next to him, although he has played two games less than the Indian.
But in Hyderabad, RCB have an opponent that has prevailed with utter dominance through most stages of the ongoing tournament, claiming nine wins from 12 games and collecting 18 points in the process. "That's the analogy we are trying to use going into the next game", said head coach Daniel Vettori.
Pacer Umesh Yadav (3/23) starred with the ball and was well complemented by the fielders effecting three run-outs as only three of the Punjab batsmen could manage to reach double figures on a flat track at the Holkar Stadium here on Monday.
Both pace bowlers mostly bowled length deliveries on the off-stump or the fourth stump line and did not allow the two openers to swing their arms without shuffling across.
RCB will keep on fighting: AB de Villiers Thanks to the insipid performances early in their campaign, RCB find themselves on sticky wicket even as the business end of the league approaches. In the meantime, her better half is busy leading a team at IPL 2018. Not only did she share a picture of her wearing a Virat Kohli Jersey, but she also posted her picture getting ready while being hooked at the phone screen watching the RCB match.
It's simple. Win or perish situation it is for Virat Kohli and his band. Since then, RCB have notched up two comprehensive back-to-back wins, the last, a 10-wicket rout of Kings XI Punjab.
While Kings XI slumped to their third successive loss, RCB improved upon their net run rate by sealing the victory in 8.1 overs. "We knew they would want to get big runs because they don't have the mystery spinner today and we knew we could bank on that particular aspect". Each win is extremely crucial to ensure their hopes for qualifying in the play offs stay alive.
Although, Virat Kohli and Anushka Sharma might not get to spend as much time with each other as they would have liked, they always have each other's back, no matter where they are.
