In an amazing triumph, Royal Challengers Bengaluru got their most memorable triumph of the continuous IPL by overcoming Punjab Kings by four wickets on Monday at MA Chidambaram Stadium.

Virat Kohli, driving from the front, knocked off a game-dominating 77-run thump, while Dinesh Karthik assumed a vital role, completing the game in style with his unbeaten (28) off (10) deliveries.

RCB, who had encountered difficulty in their past match against CSK, entered this game with a restored assurance to turn their fortunes around.

Prior to winning the throw and choosing the field, RCB confined PBKS to a reasonable total of 176/6 (20), with Maxwell and Siraj getting back with two wickets each.

Prominent commitments for PBKS came from captain Shikhar Dhawan, Sam Curran, and Jitesh Sharma, scoring (45), (23) and (27) individually.

In quest for the objective, RCB got off to a rough beginning, with their critical players Faf du Plessis and Cameron Green losing their wickets for low scores.

Notwithstanding, it was the thump of Virat Kohli that reversed the situation in support of RCB. Kohli, known for his mind-blowing batting ability, displayed abilities by and by with a made inning, securing the pursuit and directing his group closer to triumph.

Karthik, then again, contributed significantly with his superb batting, driving the group to a radiant success.
