Selfie-seeking fan breaches security to meet Virat Kohli at IPL

Selfie-seeking fan breaches security to meet Virat Kohli at IPL

Royal Challengers Bangalore outshined Delhi Daredevils as the visitors achieved a win by five wickets and six balls to spare, at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium in New Delhi on May 12, 2018.

They take on Delhi, a squad that is already down and out after losing to Sunrisers on Thursday all but confirming their early exit from the competition.

The other set batsman, Iyer, too departed soon after Pant's fall, hurting the innings momentum to leave Delhi at 120 four in 15.1 overs. Pant plundered 61 runs off 34 balls to help Delhi overcome some early hiccups.

Virat Kohli has always been open about being a fan of AB de Villiers' batting.

Tiger will play at The Open in July
He struggled to get much going in his first round, finishing with an even-par 72 after bogeying his final hole. Woods played in last week's Wells Fargo Championship , but finished 14 shots behind victor Jason Day.

Royal Challengers Bangalore are now placed in the seventh place on the league table with four wins from 11 games.

De Villiers held his composure and took the team past the finish line with a 37-ball 72.

Then it was a complete show as the debutant and all-rounder Abhishek Sharma hampered the Bangalore bowling attack in the death overs. Ashwin slammed four boundaries and three huge sixes in his innings of 45 but it wasn't meant to be as Punjab fell short by 31 runs. RCB need to win their remaining four matches to stay in contention and hope other results will fall into place to allow them to progress to the playoffs, the press release.

At the start of the seventh over of the RCB's chase, Kohli's mind deviated while he was taking guard against the bowler in what looked like a friendly banter from Pant behind the stumps.

At least two dead, 13 injured in Indonesia church attacks
The U.S. blames JAD for a suicide bombing and gun attack in Jakarta in January 2016 that left four people dead and 25 injured. He said 41 people were wounded at that location, including two police officers, while one or more of the bombers were killed.

Local boy Kohli received a lot of support and love from the Delhi crowd as he, along with AB de Villiers led RCB to a 5-wicket win against DD to keep their campaign alive in the IPL.

It will be homecoming for RCB skipper Virat Kohli, a Delhi boy, who has been in good nick in IPL 2018.

A little later Chahal sent back Jason Roy in a similar fashion as the Englishman failed to read the wrong one off the Indian spinner's hands, leaving Delhi at two for 16 in the third over. Glenn Maxwell, Liam Plunkett and Shahbaz Nadeem have been dropped. His control and temperament saw him claim 2-28 from his allotment, clearly the best bowler on the night.

Post-match, Kohli took to Instragram expressing his admiration for de Villiers batting. Glenn Maxwell, Shahbaz Nadeem and Liam Plunkett made in way for Abhishek Sharma, Sandeep Lamichhane and Junior Dala. The bowling department will be headed by pacemen Umesh Yadav and Tim Southee while leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal and offie Washington Sundar can be handy options in the middle overs.
