The match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals at the Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bangalore on Tuesday was washed out by rain but still produced plenty to make it a day for fans in the stadium. It took a three and a half hours delay before players of either side could make their way onto the field for the action to take place. Virat Kohli and Ab De Villiers took the onus upon them to give RCB a flying start in a truncated encounter after RR skipper Steven Smith won the toss and decided to bowl first.
Virat Kohli went berserk in the very first over of the innings, smashing Varun Aaron for two sixes in the first two balls to hit the ground running for the hosts. The first ball from the Indian pacer was pitched right in the slot outside off and Kohli needed no sighters whatsoever to dispatch it over long off for a glorious six. Aaron corrected his length on his next delievery and bowled it short of good length, cramping Kohli for room, who threw his bat hard at it before watching the outside edge sail over the long on fence for another maximum.
