The match will be held at 7:30 PM according to the IST. Royal Challenger Bangalore will come in this marquee encounter after a 97-run defeat against Kings XI Punjab, and Kohli, who has been struggling to get runs on the board, will be eager to play a big knock today. If Virat Kohli manages to get 85 runs against their old arch-rivals Mumbai Indians in Indian Premier League, he will achieve a huge T20 milestone. Kohli will become the first Indian player to do so. So, we all hoping that Kolhi puts a massive show in this marquee encounter against Mumbai Indians but it's not an easy task for him. Let's see what come next.
If RCB's skipper Virat Kohli had managed to get only 85 runs against their old arch-rivals Mumbai Indians, he will achieve another biggest milestone in this short format. He will become the first Indian player to score 9,000 runs in T20 cricket. Currently, Kohli is the leading Indian player with most T20 runs, with 8,915 runs so far in 283 matches. Overall, Royal Challenger Bangalore's skipper Virat Kohli will be the 7th batsman in the 9000-run club in T20 cricket, only after Chris Gayle (13,296 runs), Kieron Pollard (10,238 runs), Brendon McCullum (9,922 runs), Shoaib Malik (9,906 runs), David Warner (9,318 runs), and Aaron Finch (9,088 runs).
Former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen has backed an under-fire Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli, saying that it will be interesting to see how he comes back after a heavy defeat. Kevin Pietersen agreed that Kohli hasn’t started the tournament well but he has done well to gets back in form as soon as possible.
“He hasn’t started very well at all. And he accepts that, and he even said at the press conference, accepting the responsibility of some of the stuff that he has been doing. So, he is man enough to accept his responsibility and I am still very interested to see how a guy like him makes a comeback,” Pietersen said.
