After a slow start to his IPL season, Virat Kohli seems to have got into his stride in the UAE. The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper led from the front and hit an unbeaten 90 off 52 balls in challenging circumstances to help his side notch up a 37-run victory in Dubai on Saturday. The win was RCB's fourth in six matches while MS Dhoni's boys slumped to their fifth loss in seven games. In response to RCB's total of 169/4, Chennai Super Kings limped to 132/8 in 20 overs.

Chris Morris and Washington Sundar were particularly impressive. Scorecard | Points TableRCB had to rebuild after being ...
