New Delhi: Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli returned to the field in spectacular style by scoring a half-century against Mumbai Indians in his first match of the tenth season of Indian Premier League (IPL) on Friday.

Kohli missed from action for over a month but the 28-year-old is back now and ready to take his team back to the top in the tournament. And this is the very reason why Kohli is keeping a close eye on the progress of the other teams as run-rate can play an important factor in the business end of the tournament.

Virat Kohli posted a picture on social media on Saturday, where he is seen giving his body the due rest after taking to the field on Friday following a lengthy absence.

Kohli's Instagram post read: "An off day and watching the ipl games is always a good feeling. Recovering from soreness of playing after a month 😒🙈😃"

Kohli sustained the injury during the third Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Ranchi in March, which forced him to miss the fourth Test in Dharamsala as well. Kohli had to sit out of the opening three matches of the RCB's campaign as well as he hadn't fully recovered from the injury.

But now the Bangalore's talisman is back and the skipper will to change the fortunes of his team sooner than later.
