Former Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli returned to form with a sensational 33-ball half-century against Gujarat Titans at Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai. It’s a do or die game for RCB to stay alive in the playoff contention and Kohli returned to his best with a counter-attacking half-century to provide his team with a solid start in the 169 chase.

Kohli completed his half-century with a magnificent six over deep mid-wicket off Rashid Khan’s delivery. It was the second time when Kohli score a 50-plus score this season and interestingly the first one also came up against Gujarat Titans where he scored 58 runs off 53 balls. The 33-year-old didn’t look his fluent best on that occasion but on Thursday he was all charged to play a crucial knock for his team as attacked the bowlers right from the start. The batting maestro also completed his 7000 runs for Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Earlier, Kohli showed a great gesture of sportsmanship in the first innings of the match. The batting maestro was seen consoling Gujarat Titans wicketkeeper batter Matthew Wade after he became a victim of a controversial dismissal.
