Virat Kohli roars back in form with brilliant half-century

Virat Kohli got back to his groove as he brought up his first half-century of the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. In Royal Challengers Bangalore's opening match against Chennai Super Kings, the 35-year-old failed to deliver his best as he scored just 21 off 20 balls at a strike rate of 105.

His poor outing was questioned by many as he returned to competitive cricket after two months break for the birth of his second child. However, Kohli managed to silence his critics by unleashing his firepower and took on Punjab Kings' bowling attack.

Virat Kohli played a incredible innings of 77 off 49 balls at a strike rate of 157.16. His knock consisted of 11 fours and 2 sixes. Kohli's brilliant effort paid off as Royal Challengers Bangalore earned their first victory of the season with a four-wicket win over Punjab Kings.

Dinesh Karthik (28*) and Mahipal Lamror (17*) formed a crucial 48-run partnership to achieve 177-run target with four balls to spare in the final over of the match.
