108 not out versus Rising Pune Supergiant

On May 7, 2016, RCB faced Rising Pune Supergiant who batted first and scored 191/6. Kohli shared a 94-run opening stand with Rahul as he scored an unbeaten 108 off 58 balls to take his team home with 7 wickets and 3 balls to spare.

Another Match-winning Knock

But after Gayle was out in the 11th over, Kohli went on the rampage, helping to add 52 more runs in the next four overs before he was out. In reply KXIP could manage only 120/9 in 14 overs rendering RCB the winners by 82 runs (D/L method).

100 versus Kolkata Knight Riders
