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.

Tornado watch issued for part of NJ as storms sweep across state
Severe weather sweeping through the area this evening could bring heavy rain and thunderstorms to parts of the Garden State. Monday will see a 20 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms on a mostly cloudy day with a high of 80 and a low of 63.

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.

The man's father had approached the Islamabad high court to stop the diplomat from leaving the country. A spokesman for the United States embassy in Islamabad declined to comment on the events of Saturday.

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.

French anger at United States sanctions on Iran
On this basis, the JCPOA was supposed to be merely an "introduction", or a "symbol" for controlling Iran's enormous power. If the U.S. punishes European companies for doing business with Iran, foreign companies will likely walk away from Iran.
