New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore jumped to second position in the points table after an 82-run win against Kings XI Punjab in Match 50 of Indian Premier League 2016.
Virat Kohli once again played a captain's knock, with a belligerent 50-ball 113 – his fourth ton of the season.
It was raining heavily before the match and it looked the end of RCB's chances of making it to play-offs, but as a result of some great work from the ground staff at the Chinnaswamy stadium, the match was possible.
Bangalore now need to win their remaining match against Delhi Daredevils to make it to the play-offs. Their net run-rate is much better than the other teams, something which could work in their favour.
While Sunrisers Hyderabad are the table-toppers at the moment, Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians are currently ranked at the third and the fourth position respectively in the table.
