In the second over, he went after Bumrah although the latter had dismissed Devdutt Padikkal. But when Kohli gets the strike, he was going in beast mode,” Aakash Chopra said.
Chopra added that the Royal Challengers Bangalore innings stroll a little. After the powerplay overs.
“When Padikkal got out, there was a good partnership between Bharat and Kohli, it was destructive. But the moment the powerplay got over, everything starts changing.
