It was a must win game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they faced MS Dhoni led Rising Pune Supergiants at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.

Captain Kolhi won the toss and elected to bowl first, but things did not really go well for him as Pune posted a daunting total of 191/6 in their 20 overs, courtesy flurry of mis-fields and dropped catches from the RCB end.

RCB needed runs at the rate of 9.6 per over to win this crucial tie. But why to worry, when you have our Kohli. The ever reliable Indian batsman proved his metal once again as he scored a 85 ball 108 Not Out to guide his team to a comprehensive win.
