Virat Kohli declared fit to play in IPL 2017

The 28-year-old batsman was sidelined due to a injury on his right shoulder, which he suffered during the third Test of the India-Australia series.

RCB have reached the final only thrice, but never won the title. His return, coupled with AB de Villiers's brilliance, will bring the fear factor back into the Bangalore batting line-up.

He returned from injury layoff with a bang, hitting a swashbuckling 89 not out off only 46 balls.

"India cricket team and RCB captain Virat Kohli declared match fit", a BCCI release said. Now with Kohli back into the side, we can expect these two to register some memorable partnerships together.

Michael Clarke: Expectations exactly the same every time he walks out to the field.I think he will make runs. "I am just delighted to be back and very excited to take the field".

When he takes the crease, either as opener or in his more preferred onedrop position, there will be a sense of the gates of Pamplona being thrown open, setting of the running of the bulls. That's the flawless position for him.

"I phoned my wife just before the game, telling her that I am doubting myself a bit. That is something that we will stay in focus for us through the season if we want to make it to play-offs". YouTube, in fact, throws up more than a dozen results for searches with "Virat Kohli" and "machine" keywords. MI are ahead of RCB this season, with two victories out of the three matches they have played so far.

Boria: But Virat not only Virat the batsman, Virat the captain. Their bowling too hasn't looked really threatening apart from the odd over from Tymal Mills and Billy Stanlake.

Watson's indifferent form might see Chris Gayle coming in to replace him. Chris Gayle did not look comfortable and was batting slow by his standards.

Although the RCB slumped to an eight-wicket defeat, the Proteas ODI skipper produced one of the most blistering innings of the competition so far. Well, he can open the bowling.

Virat Kohli also suggested that De Villiers, Chris Gayle and himself would play on Friday and Kedar Jadhav would keep wicket. But in the larger picture, you understand what's important for the team. "But I'll definitely handle it better than I have in some instances in the past", he added. What they will desperately be hoping for is to see captain Rohit Sharma back in the 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.
