Virat Kohli and Faf du Plessis took Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) to a flying start in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 as they secured an eight-wicket win over Mumbai Indians (MI) in Chinnaswamy Stadium on Sunday.
Chasing a competitive total of 172, Kohli and Faf gave RCB an ideal start as the partnership added 148 in 14.5 overs before the RCB skipper was dismissed by Arshad Khan for 73(43). Cameron Green then packed Dinesh Karthik for 0, before Glenn Maxwell (12* off 3) joined the beating of MI bowlers.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli remained unbeaten on 82 off 49 balls, which include six 4s and five 6s. Earlier, Tilak Verma put up a solo battle and steered Mumbai to 171/7 after being put to bat first. The Mumbai batter did an unbeaten 84 off 46 balls and made a crucial partnership with Nehal Wadhela (21 off 13) and Arshad Khan (15* off 9). He put up a 50-run stand with Wadhela after the MI team was reduced to 48/4 in 8.5 overs. He then added 48 in just 18 balls with Arshad to bail Mumbai out of trouble.
Chasing the target till the end, Kohli slams Arshad Khan for a boundary and then wraps the match in style. The King punches the pacer for a six toward long-on to complete RCB’s 172-run chase in just 16.2 overs. They win the contest by 8 wickets.
