  • Virat Kohli changes Instagram picture alongside lady love Anushka Sharma

Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma flies down to Bengaluru to spend quality time with Virat Kohli during IPL 10.

As Kohli walked into the middle to open the innings with Chris Gayle after Mumbai skipper Rohit Sharma chose to field first despite winning the toss, fans cheered him loudly and chants of "Kohli, Kohli" reverberated across the packed stands. When will Virat Kohli return?

Ahead of their crucial match against Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore got a major boost as skipper Virat Kohli was declared fit by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). "Never a good feeling, when you have played for seven-eight years without missing a game, to miss one because of injury". In his absence, AB de Villiers was named captain but he, too, sustained an injury. Playing his first game of IPL 2017, against the Mumbai Indians, in front of a packed Chinnaswamy, cheering his every shot on, Kohli got his groove on, on a hard surface.

The mainstay of RB is their formidable batting line-up that can bat deep till down the order. Now he will be part of RCB team. Meanwhile, the bowling looks to have better depth but have Mumbai got the strike bowlers to take key wickets on Friday?

Mumbai, with the batting they possess, were expected to chase the 143-run target comfortably on a batting friendly pitch at the Chinnaswamy Stadium.

This news would certainly end Royal Challengers Bangalore's batting vows.

Lawmakers cast doubt on Nunes's claims after viewing intel
US UN Ambassador Susan Rice states that she had certain political reasons for why she decided not to reveal General Michael Flynn. Nunes has been consistent all along that no evidence he's yet seen would allow him to conclude what Rice did was illegal.

Virat Kohli's smile said it all.

I can't say that he was being absolutely honest, but hey, who knows, right?

More important though was the caption next to it.

Pollard and Krunal bided their time and attacked certain bowlers with Pawan Negi getting particularly brutal treatment in his second over which went for 19 runs.

Kedar Jadhav, meanwhile, has showcased his utility by slamming a 37-ball 69 to help his side score 157 runs during a 15-run win over Delhi Daredevils.

Hardik Padhya delivered in first two matches with the bat while brother Krunal was in business with the ball against KKR and Hyderabad.

There was certainly no hostility between the South African, and Kohli, who is an unabashed admirer of de Villiers. In the bowling department Harbhajan Singh, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell McClenahagan and Jasprit Bumrah who is a potent player for the MI team are expected to play as well.
