Anushka on Monday encouraged Virat and his IPL team Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), who were playing against Kings XI Punjab at the Holkar stadium in Indore.

Virat Kohli (48) and Parthiv Patel (44) remain unbeaten a the crease.

While bowlers leaked runs in the earlier matches, yesterday's encounter saw them producing good performance to bundle out KXIP for mere 88 runs.

On the bowling front too, Tim Southee, who was included in the XI midway through the tournament, could do well to take some burden off Umesh.

Today in the 51 match of Indian Premier League's 11 seasons RCB will lock horns with table-toppers Sunrisers Hyderabad in Match 51.

It's simple. Win or perish situation it is for Virat Kohli and his band.

A defeat on the morrow against Sunrisers will reduce the final game of RCB against Rajasthan at Jaipur to nearly an academic affair.

Having won two matches on the trot, an upbeat Kohli, who had a big smile on his face at the presentation ceremony, shed light on how the mood in the camp has improved.

It was no surprise, then, to see him open the batting and ensure his side notched up a win that swung RCB's NRR from negative into positive, a few points behind MI. With a mere 189 runs from 10 innings, Manish Pandey has been the most obvious disappointment. "That's the analogy we are trying to use going into the next game", said head coach Daniel Vettori.

RCB have five wins of the 12 games they have played and with this victory they need to win the last two matches to have a hope to qualify for the playoffs. "We just kept them in doubt".

The Chinnaswamy has given us two pitches - one fits smooth stroke play and one that grips the ball and make batsmen toil for runs. With the job done, they could have rested some and given chances to other players, but head coach Tom Moody is not keen on many changes. However, after 12 matches, the Preity Zinta co-owned side are yet to seal a spot in the knockout stages.
