Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captain Virat Kohli silenced his critics in style as he scored a match-winning 72 not out to steer his team to an eight-wicket win against the Rajasthan Royals in the 15th match of the Indian Premier League in Abu Dhabi.

Captain Kohli's knock came off 53 balls with seven fours and two sixes. He received able support from young opener Devdutt Padikkal, who came with a 45-ball 63 run knock.
The fall of Padikkal hardly affected RCB's run-chase as Kohli, who finally regained his touch, continued with his fluent shots and in the process also completed 5,500 runs in the league. The run-machine was joined by AB de Villers, who remained unbeaten on 12 off 10 balls, and the pair easily overhauled the target with five balls to spare.
As soon as the match ended, fans and former cricketers alike lauded the RCB captain's classy innings.
