great innings from @imVkohli in a losing cause - he is a run machine!!— Mike Hussey (@mhussey393) April 17, 2018
I have absolutely enjoyed this innings from @imVkohli. Quick start, then when wickets went down ensured there wasn't an early end and now seeing that they don't fall too far behind on NRR.— Harsha Bhogle (@bhogleharsha) April 17, 2018
Virat Kohli - The lone warrior stands tall yet again. You gotta feel bad for this man. There has been no method to the way the rest of the RCB batters batted today at the Wankhede. Huge disappointment #MIvRCB— Hemang Badani (@hemangkbadani) April 17, 2018
However, RCB won the toss and elected to bowl first.
