Virat Kohli Century Against KKR
— AB de Villiers (@ABdeVilliers17) April 19, 2019
Virat Kohli notched up his fifth century to rescue Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) from a slow start and post 213/4 against Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata on Friday.
Put in to bat, RCB lost Parthiv Patel early. His fellow opener and skipper Kohli did not time the ball well early on but then went to play the role of a sheet anchor as the visitors posted a challenging total on a belter of a track. Kohli was helped on with a rampant half-century from Moeen Ali (66), whose 28-ball knock was five boundaries and six sixes.
Following Ali’s dismissal, Marcus Stoinis (17) played an important cameo to help the visitors in their cause. For the hosts, Sunil Narine, Andre Russell and Kuldeep Yadav picked a wicket each.
6,4,2,1 off Prasidh Krishna Kohli moves to 95. Dinesh Karthik shuffles his field a bit too much, but it only results in Stoinis hitting Prasidh for a four-over deep-extra cover.
Virat gets a century!
His fifth in the IPL
