Kohli's mind games, Punjab's comical run-outs: Talking points from KXIP's embarrassing defeat

Bangalore crush Punjab by 10 wickets in must-win IPL game “Thanks my love”, tweets Virat Kohli to his favourite cheerleader Anushka Sharma after winning the match!

Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has been in decent touch in this edition of the Indian Premier League and the 29-year-old batsman etched another record to his name on Monday.

Virat Kohli scored unbeaten 48 runs with the help of two sixes and four fours while Parthiv Patel scored 40 runs that included seven boundaries. An easy win for RCB Virat Kohli promoted himself to open the innings and led from the front to give his team a much-needed win.

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.

The transaction is expected to be approximately $0.01 dilutive to PayPal's previously communicated full year 2018 non-GAAP EPS. The news came just after iZettle announced last week that it would list an IPO on the Nasdaq in Stockholm later this year.

RCB, thought at the seventh spot with 10 points from 12 matches, is still a contender for the play-offs. Sitting comfortably at the top of the table, the Men in Orange are okay as long as they finish in the top two. As Virat Kohli called the flip of the coin right and opted to chase, his choice of words after that was quite interesting.

SRH would however be concerned about how their bowlers slipped up in the last two matches.

RCB won the toss and opted to bowl first. They kept their playoff hopes alive by beating DD and KXIP in their last two games. Although they only have two games left to play, RCB still nourish the hope of making the playoffs. "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". They might have looked decent of late, but it might be a little too late, because both Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab are ahead of the Challengers on the table. "Because yes, we want to continue to win and secondly, I think it is important you have the continuity within the playing XI, people understanding what their roles are and getting an opportunity to continue their form", said the gaffer, who would want to see his team register a 10th win.
