Virat Kohli was pleased with his team's performance in their first game at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Friday.

The Kings XI Punjab are positive and upbeat with their opening win and are excited for their match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Earlier, Umesh rocked the KXIP innings with a three-wicket burst in an over as RCB bowled out the visitors for 155. Sundar walked in slashed one over third man for a boundary off Mohit Sharma and then crunched one through cover to seal the game for RCB. "Credit to Umesh, Washington, Woakes, and Khejroliya". While on the one hand their batting line-up is one of the best, on the other their bowling attack is fairly toothless.

The off-spinner, who had conceded 10 runs off his first three overs, went for 19 in his last, de Villiers hammering a pair of sixes off the final two balls of his spell.

The 34-year-old, who also launched teenage Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman for back-to-back maximums, was caught in the deep in the penultimate over off Andrew Tye, but Washington Sundar (9no) struck Mohit for two boundaries in the last as RCB triumphed with three balls to spare. The ball pitched well outside off at a teasing length, drawing an expansive cover-drive. But then there was still a certain AB de Villiers (57, 40b, 2x4, 4x6) at the crease, making a mockery of both the relative difficulty of the task and the slow nature of the pitch. He bolwed de Kock and produced an edge off Sarfraz Khan to derail RCB's chase. 69 were needed in 51, far from impossible with Mr 360 degrees still around and Punjab rapidly running out of spin options.

The boy was inside a gold 2002 Honda Odyssey van in the parking lot of his school, pinned under the third-row folding seat. By then, responding officers had traced the Global Positioning System coordinates from his phone to the parking lot.

Mandeep Singh joined De Villiers at the crease and the duo kept the scoreboard ticking with the help of singles and doubles. Both had played trailblazing knocks of 43 and 44 runs respectively in the opening match against KKR. Two very big sixes from Rahul, the first on the up over cover an absolute peach, studded a 16-run over but Bangalore pulled things back beautifully once Umesh got into the act.

Mayank Agarwal edged behind before Aaron Finch was dismissed lbw. Punjab had just two stands of 32 and 58 while RCB had a couple of fifty run partnerships in the middle overs and a 32-run stand at the top.

The Aussie Pack: All of the Aussies featured on the losing side, with Aaron Finch's long-awaited return to the IPL over quickly, trapped in front from the very first ball he faced.

Yuvraj Singh, who appeared rusty in his stint against Delhi, was dismissed by Umesh in the same over as the previous two batsmen. It was tremendous bowling against a quality line-up. Umesh was the clear lynchpin, but he didn't plug away without support.
