Mumbai, May 19
A fired-up Virat Kohli roared back to form with a fine half-century as Royal Challengers Bangalore stayed alive in the IPL playoffs race with a thumping eight-wicket win over table-toppers Gujarat Titans here today.
This was after skipper Hardik Pandya scored a gritty 47-ball 62 to lift Gujarat to a competitive 168/5 after opting to bat.
Kohli (73 off 54) and captain Faf du Plessis (44 off 38) shared a match-winning 115-run opening stand before Glenn Maxwell (40 not out) went ballistic to ensure the team got home in 18.4 overs.
Brief Scores: GT: 168/5 in 20 overs (Pandya 62*; 2/39); RCB: 170/2 in 19.2 overs (Kohli 73; Maxwell* 40; Khan 2/32). — PTI
