Despite the victory, RCB again lost two wickets in as many balls like they did at the Eden last Sunday and this is an area of concern for Kohli.
The 34-year-old, who also launched teenage Afghanistan spinner Mujeeb Ur Rahman for back-to-back maximums, was caught in the deep in the penultimate over off Andrew Tye, but Washington Sundar (9no) struck Mohit for two boundaries in the last as RCB triumphed with three balls to spare. Mandeep Singh (22) then came in the middle and supported de Villiers by playing some beautifully crafted shots around the ground.
After losing five consecutive games at their home, RCB is back to winning ways against Kings XI Punjab, thanks to AB de Villiers' calculated knock of 57 runs off 40 balls.
With RCB needing six runs from 8 balls, Chris Woakes and Washington Sundar took the team to victory. Brendon McCullum got out for a duck in his last outing and if all four manage to click then it could mean curtains for RR. He couldn't achieve a hat-trick but two balls later, he rearranged Yuvraj Singh's woodwork with an in-shaping delivery. Consistently bowling at speeds of over 140 kmph, he ran amok in his second over to claim three top order batsmen - Mayank Agarwal, Aaron Finch, Yuvraj Singh - and it should rank among the best spell of fast bowling at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. However, Karun Nair and KL Rahul built a partnership of 58 runs. A good inning of 33 runs off just 21 deliveries by the Punjab skipper Ravi Ashwin helped them to post a respectable total of 155/10 (19.2 overs) on the board.
Umesh Yadav's lethal bowling rocked the top batting line up of KXIP as he took 3 wickets and was also awarded man of the match. His innings ended when he attempted to put away Ashwin (2-30) for a big one but mistimed it with the ball crashing into the stumps.
In the next over, Nair was bowled by Khejroliya for 29, and when Marcus Stoinis and Axar fell in the following two overs, Punjab had lost 4 for 28 in four overs.
