Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli rose to the occasion when his team needed the most as his brilliant century helped the post 213 runs on the board against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
Meanwhile, Bangalore didn’t have a great start after Dinesh Karthik won the toss and opted to bowl first. The visitors lost Parthiv Patel in the fourth over and was staring another collapse. Surprisingly, they promoted young Arshdeep Nath at no three who looked completely out of place. But once Kolkata got rid of Nath, Moeen Ali and Virat Kohli made them pay the price. Moeen, in particular, was the attacker of the two dismissing everything at his disposal. He clocked a strike-rate of over 230 during his 28-ball 66 runs knock. His carnage included five fours and six towering over boundaries as he kept Eden Gardens crowd on their feet.
