Kohli shares his thoughts on batting with De Villiers

Meanwhile, their opponents for Monday's encounter - Kings XI Punjab - seem to have lost the grip as the tournament advances and are in the third place with six wins from 11 games. Umesh Yadav sends back KXIP openers to dug out.

RCB, thought at the seventh spot with 10 points from 12 matches, is still a contender for the play-offs.

The Challengers are coming off of a victory after a long time now after AB and Kohli powered them to victory against a hapless Delhi side.

IPL 2018 KXIP vs RCB live streaming of t20 cricket match will be provided by official partners on their portals.

The RCB chase was reminiscent of Sunrisers Hyderabad's effort here on Thursday when they hunted down a 188-run target easily.

Thanks to Kohli (70 off 40) and de Villiers (72 not out off 37), RCB raced to the 182-run target in 19 overs despite being reduced to two for 18 in the third over.

Porn-star hush money: No respite for Trump
Though it was published three decades ago, his book The Art of The Deal previous year generated as much as $1 million. The ethics disclosure said Cohen sought reimbursement in 2017 for an expense he incurred in 2016.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore knocked the Kings XI Punjab over for just 88 before knocking over the target with all ten wickets still in hand in Indore. Despite going for runs, Umesh persisted with the short ball and the ploy worked. Their worst nightmare would have involved one of Chris Gayle or KL Rahul, or even both the former Royal Challengers, getting stuck. Yuzvendra Chahal strikes, Marcus Stoinis out for 2 runs.

Umesh Yadav's three for 23 and Moeen Ali's quick reactions at the bowler's end restricted KXIP to 88 all out, the second lowest total this IPL 2018.

Such has been the gulf in performance between skipper Kohli and other batsmen in the team that despite blowing "hot and cold" throughout the season, he is team's top run-getter by a distance with 466 runs from 11 games. As the Proteas walked across the stumps to the off-side, the Delhi Daredevils bowler threw a brilliant ball which had no effect on the RCB batsman who expertly deposited the ball over square leg boundary.

The next specialist bowler who got to play more than five games is Mohammed Siraj (8 wickets from 8 games at an economy rate of 9.13). Karun Nair did little to calm Punjab's nerves as Siraj struck in his first over, eliciting an edge that flew to Virat Kohli at slip. Besides Rahul and Gayle, Finch (26) was the only other Kings XI batsman to move into double figures. It was a rare occasion where the entire RCB bowling unit contributed to the team in a must-win game.

Recently, in his column for The Times of India, AB de Villiers called Indian skipper Virat Kohli a "force of nature at crease". Apart from the duo, Mandeep Singh has been impressive having scored 245 runs so far but the others have been inconsistent. Punjab then crumbled, making just 10 more runs. While, Virat Kohli's led Royal Challengers is desperate for victories. He has got chance in only five of the matches with only three wickets in his kitty at an economy rate of 8.73.

Chris Gayle has only 1 significant contribution in Indore's Holkar Stadium.
