From 23 for 2 in the sixth over, RCB allowed Delhi Daredevils (DD) to get 174. RCB were then reduced to 29 for 2 in the fifth over when <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">AB de Villiers</a> was united with skipper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/virat-kohli" target="_blank">Virat Kohli</a>. The added 63 runs off 39 balls but it was majorly a de Villiers show. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/virat-kohli-reveals-batting-tricks-he-learnt-from-ab-de-villiers-during-south-africa-test-series-703553"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p>AB was on top gear right since he arrived at the crease. There were hardly any slogs. He found the gaps and his exquisite strokes found a way or two to meet the ropes. In an innings consisting 10 fours and 5 sixes, AB belted 90* off just 39 balls to see RCB home in the 18th over. <p></p> <p></p>Kohli, a self-confessed AB fan, praised the South African maverick after the game. Rating his 30 of this match higher than the 92* against Mumbai Indians (MI), Kohli said, These 30 runs are bigger than the 90 odd in the last game. We won. We still have a few areas to correct, but when you have the brilliant AB in the team, he always makes you smile. <p></p> <p></p>[link-to-post url="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/ipl-2018-virat-kohli-praises-trent-boult-for-his-stunning-catch-704194"][/link-to-post] <p></p> <p></p> We understand our games very well and then he starts going off. And we know if we can get a 60-70 run partnership, we could win the game. Pity I couldn t stay till the end but Corey [Anderson] and Mandeep Singh did well. <p></p> <p></p>RCB play the in-form Chennai Super Kings at M Chinnaswamy Stadium on Wednesday. The clash is touted as Kohli vs MS Dhoni clash.
