RCB finally gave their fans something to shout about as they defeated Delhi in a thrilling contest at the Feroz Shah Kotla. The Twitteratti were, however, more interested in Virat Kohli's brilliantly timed six and the Bangalore captain's over the top celebration on winning a dead rubber game.
Brief Scores: Royal Challengers Bangalore 161/6 (Virat Kohli 58, Chris Gayle 48; Pat Cummins 2/21, Shahbaz Nadeem 1/12) beat Delhi Daredevils 151/10 (Rishabh Pant 45, Shreyash Iyer 32; Pawan Negi 3/10, Harshal Patel 2/43) by 10 runs.
