Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Virat Kohli shared a light moment during the match between Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH). Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s dismissal of Chris Gayle was a lucky one for Bhuvi as the ball flicked onto the stumps after deflecting from Chris Gayle’s thigh pad. Kohli, who was standing at the non-striker’s end, smiled at Bhuvneshwar when he looked back and the moment was captured on the camera.

Virat Kohli scored 75. The captains’ crucial bowling change also helped Royal Challengers Bangalore to win their first IPL match of 2016 by 45 runs.

Kohli and AB de Villiers have built a 157 runs partnership for the second wicket before Shane Watson  announced himself by hitting three successive sixes in an over from Kran Sharma.

The final flourish was lent by Sarfaraz Khan, who in his typically unorthodox fashion, paddled and reverse-paddled his way to an unbeaten 10-ball 35 as Royal Challengers finished with 227 for 4.

Deflated and dejected, Sunrisers went for broke, wiping out 83 for the loss of Shikhar Dhawan in eight overs. David Warner, who returned to open after a brief flirtation in the middle order with Australia in the World T20, showed why he is one of the most feared white-ball strikers. His pyrotechnics fetched three sixes and five fours in a 21-ball half-century before he fell into Watson’s short-ball trap.
