Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli has looked in fine form after returning from a shoulder injury. The 28-year old has looked in good shape and have continued his impressive run in the ongoing IPL game against Gujarat Lions in Rajkot.

Kohli has managed to score yet another impressive 64 off just 50 balls which featured seven fours and one six, as he complemented Chris Gayle well since the start of the innings.

However, the elegant batsman could not make the most of the start, as he was dismissed very early since he started to accelerate the run rate in the last five overs.

Dhawal Kulkarni, who is an experienced campaigner in both IPL and domestic cricket, was able to outfox the Indian skipper, as Virat Kohli was caught out in the deep midwicket region after trying to clear the fence in an attempt to up the scoring rate on a very good Rajkot wicket.

The skipper was unable to pick the disguised slower ball by Kulkarni, as the latter was able to get the better off Kohli in an intense battle in the 16th over of the innings.

Kohli, who decided to go through with the shot failed to clear the fence, as he was caught by Dwayne Smith on the ropes.
