Indian star batsman Virat Kohli was once again the match-winner for Royal Challengers Bangalore as he scored a brilliant half century to guide his team to the play-offs of the Indian Premier League on Sunday.
Chasing a modest total of 138 against Delhi Daredevils, the 27-year-old scored a well-paced 54* to guide RCB to an easy six-wicket victory in Raipur.
This was the tenth 50+ score for the star Indian batsman who has now scored 919 runs in this season and with six 50s and four 100s in 14 innings, Kohli is currently the highest scorer in the tournament by a fair distance.
Twitter was quick to applaud Kohli’s efforts:

Virat Kohli has 919 runs now and at least two more matches to play. 1000 looking a sitting duck. #IPL9— Jaspreet Sahni (@jaspreet_sahni) May 23, 2016
