RCB’s opening pair Devdutt Padikkal and skipper Virat Kohli have started the proceedings for the side. Fans were expecting a great start from RCB and a lot more from Virat – But things dint go in the right way for the skipper, as he has to depart back to the pavilion for just 5 runs. The new bowling sensation P.Krishna has taken the wicket of Kohli and it all started from there.
