The 15th season of the IPL series is in full swing in India. The Royal Challengers Bangalore team led by Du Plessis and the Kolkata Knight Riders team led by Shreyas Iyer clashed yesterday. Batting first, Kolkata lost all their wickets for 128 runs. Batting next, Bangalore won by 132 runs in 19.4 overs.

Former Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has been lauded by Sri Lanka's Bhanuka Rajapaksa who is currently in the Punjab Kings team. He said, "Outside of the team, Virat Kohli is always someone I could speak to and get some advice on fitness. He's at another different level when it comes to fitness. To me, he is the Cristiano Ronaldo of cricket for sure. With the work he puts in you can obviously see the results. You can compare him to anyone when it comes to fitness or even skills-wise. He plays so hard and you can learn a lot by talking to him."
