TOSS TIME! Royal Challengers Bangalore Captain Virat Kohli has won the toss and made a decision to bat first against Delhi Daredevils at Ferozeshah Kotla ground in the capital.

In Pat Cummins, Mohammad Shami and Zaheer Khan, they have a pace attack that ticks all the boxes and can be lethal in any conditions against any batting line-up as they have the flawless mix of pace, precision, and variety.

Earlieer, having failed to open his account in the last two matches, Gayle started RCB's innings in earnest, clipping Daredevils captain Zaheer Khan off his legs for two boundaries in the first over.

While Kohli amassed 973 runs last season to propel his team into the final, the 28-year-old has scored only 250 runs after missing the first few game due to injury.

Even as Gayle threatened, Daredevils got the first breakthrough when Cummins rattled Vishnu Vinod's stumps after getting a bottom edge, the bowling change working for the home team.

It was not the most of auspicious start for Delhi Daredevils (DD) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in pursuit of 162 runs.

Oil recovered some of its losses later Friday, trading 0.5% lower at around $45.30 by late afternoon in Asia. The US West Texas Intermediate benchmark dipped below $46 per barrel for the first time since late November.

Kohli, the local lad, would thus find huge support at Kotla for as long as he's present in the field.

Meanwhile, Kohli brought up his fifty - his fourth of the season - off 39 balls, but got out soon after he clobbered Zaheer over deep midwicket for his third six in what could be the former India seamer's final IPL game. It all started with Harshal Patel dealing Delhi a double blow in the 12th over, accounting for Iyer and Marlon Samuels off successive deliveries. He finished with seriously impressive figures of.

Delhi have once again been hugely inconsistent this season. After Samson's wicket in the first over, Karun Nair and Shreyas Iyer built a partnership of 41 before Nair fell in the sixth over. Pant, however, was running out of partners as wickets tumbled at regular intervals post the 15th over. Pat Cummins holed out after a six as well, leaving Delhi 113 for six.

On the other hand, Virat Kohli's RCB have not won a game in their last seven matches and the last-placed team will look to end their woeful season on a high.

"It's been a season to forget, a season to reflect on".
