“What the youngsters are doing today is amazing to see. Look at this IPL, I couldn’t even think of doing stuff what these young guys are doing. Just the other night, Rinku Singh hits 5 Sixes in last 5 balls which is amazing & never happened something like that. Coming in an hitting five sixes in a row to win a match, I mean what level is this? So that transition is happening is great. It is great to see such youngsters coming up,” Kohli had earlier said while talking about Rinku’s batting exploits against the Titans on Jio Cinema.

Kohli was in his element against KKR and scored 54 off 37 balls but it wasn’t good enough for RCB to get over the line. Chasing a mammoth total of 201, RCB could only manage to score 179 for 8 in 20 overs. Barring Kohli, only Manipal Lomror, and Dinesh Karthik had threatened to take the match away from KKR but they were left to do a little too much at the end with no help coming from the other batters.
With that win KKR find themselves in the seventh position while RCB are placed fifth in the IPL points table.
