  • Slowly and Slowly they are learning how to win matches but it seems to be very tough lesson for Virat Kohli and men in this season. They have failed number of occasion or if they have succeded to pass, that is also by passing mark only.

  • They are placed at bottom of the point table with 2 win to their name out of 9 games they have played.
  • Parthiv Patel and Virat Kohli are expected to open the inning for RCB. Parthiv Patel has performed consistently for the team, whereas Kohli has shown his class in previous match and made his first century of this season and helped his team to register the 2nd win of this season.Kohli is 3rd highest run scorer of this season.
  • AB Deviliers (slight risky, high chances of playing) is expected to bat next. He is one of the best batsman of cricket and is in very good form.
