Kohli broke a few records one of them being fastest fifty in T20 cricket. Until Kohli was around, <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/royal-challengers-bangalore" target="_blank">Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)</a> kept up with the asking rate. Once Kohli fell, de Villiers took over. RCB were enjoying run-chase until <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/rajasthan-royals" target="_blank">Rajasthan Royals (RR)</a> introduced <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/shreyas-gopal" target="_blank">Shreyas Gopal</a> into action. Gopal spoilt the party by scalping two huge wickets of Kohli and de Villiers. <p></p> <p></p>Gopal's wickets came as a breather for RR, whose every bowler was taken to cleaners. Gopal's figures of 4-0-22-2 built up the lost momentum of RR. Kohli and de Villiers were caught in the deep. Kohli, in particular, was caught by a stunner from D'Arcy Short. <p></p> <p></p>Gopal, however, was all humble in the post-match press-conference. Despite being privileged and honoured to take the wickets of Kohli, de Villiers, <strong>Gopal believes he did not bowl to best of abilities</strong>: "Yes, they were not the best balls that I got ABD and Kohli, I think the plan was to just bowl those hard lengths and make it as difficult as possible for them. This wicket was a little slower than the normal Bangalore wicket. But with the grass off I expected it to be on the little slower side after watching the previous game." <p></p> <p></p>He further added: "When it comes to getting two of the biggest players in the world, it doesn t happen every day. I just need to soak it in. I am privileged and honoured to have got their wickets. It s a moment that I will always cherish." <p></p> <p></p><strong>Gopal also explained how he removed Kohli:</strong> "We needed a wicket at that time, and so I was just trying to bowl some good balls and make them make a bad decision or play a bad shot. And if I get a wicket that will probably stem the run rate a little bit." <p></p> <p></p>RR applied brakes on RCB's good run at home and claimed their second win in VIVO IPL 2018.
