Virat Kohli, the Royal Challengers Bangalore, has come out and expressed his happiness on RCB's best performance of the season in the Indian Premier League last night. Bowling first, RCB got Kings XI Punjab bowled out for a mere 88 in just 15.1 overs. 

They then chased down the target in just 49 balls, as the openers Virat Kohli(48 from 28) and Parthiv Patel(40 from 22), smashed the Kings XI Punjab bowlers all over Indore's Holkar Stadium. 

Virat talking at the post-match press conference was quoted saying, "Now we just got to win our remaining two games and our run rate(net) is also quite good. We couldn't have asked for a more clinical performance. No negatives to point out today (Monday) as it was a perfect game for us,"

"Kings XI thought that we would be intimidated by their openers on this small field but the way our bowlers started and took the batsmen out, they knew that they couldn't make any mistakes. Umesh was brilliant, taking those two big wickets in the same over. We kept picking wickets throughout and that was crucial,"

Kohli also put an Instagram post, expressing happiness in front of his fans for the win. He captioned this image, "Onwards and Upwards from here. Proud of the way our Bowlers performed. Now back home for the next game! ????????@royalchallengersbangalore #KXIPvRCB #IPL2018"

Talking about his team's next two games, against the Sunrisers Hyderabad(home) and Rajasthan Royals(away), Kohli said the must-win nature gets the best out of his team and will help them in the future too. 

He said, "We are in the nothing-to-lose zone and it will work well for us. Other teams will be wary of a team with such mindset. We aren't going to get too ahead of ourselves. The last game will be interesting if we can get the next one. We still got three days till the next game, we just want to enjoy the break till then,"
