The last game of the group stage of the Indian Premier League saw two legends of the IPL get back into form and play blistering knocks against the Delhi Daredevils. Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle have not been in the best of forms in the IPL, and as a result RCB are at the bottom of the table. But the two stars found some form in the last game as they looked to salvage some pride for their side. Gayle and Kohli have been absolutely sensational over the years for the Bangalore outfit, and have played numerous match winning knocks for them. But this season, the two destructive batsmen have struggled to find their best form, and as a result, RCB have failed to qualify for the playoffs.
Gayle scored a blistering knock of 48 off just 38 balls, which included 3 fours and 3 sixes, while captain Kohli scored a brilliant half century, scoring 58 runs off 45 balls. Gayle and Kohli were expected to fire for the entire season, but failed and their fans were extremely disappointed as a result. But the two stars gave their fans something to cheer about at the Kotla.
Twitter users went into a frenzy following the brilliant knocks by the two batsmen.
Here are some of the best tweets :
Kohli has just hit a six over extra cover with a shot that was half checked drive, half forward defensive. Staggering timing. #IPL
