Orange Cap IPL 2024 Update after RCB vs LSG

Virat Kohli becomes the first batter to breach the 200-run mark in IPL 2024.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Tuesday suffered a second consecutive defeat in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. It was their third overall in four games which has put them in the 9th position of the points table. It was yet another encounter that exposed their fragile bowling attack. On the contrary, the only highlight of RCB has been Virat Kohli who continues to showcase his prowess with the bat.

Similar to his previous two outings, Kohli got the desired start as RCB chased 182 at Chinnaswamy Stadium. He fired 22 off 16 deliveries, with the help of 2 boundaries and one six, before becoming the maiden victim of left-arm spinner M Siddharth. Only Rajat Patidar (29) and Mahipal Lomror (33) could score more than Kohli as RCB were bundled out for 153 in the chase with 2 balls to spare.
