Royal Challengers Bangalore beat Kolkata Knight Riders by 10 runs on Friday. Virat Kohli smashed his first century of the season after Moeen Ali’s blistering knock as RCB went on to pile 213/4 after batting first. In reply, KKR were almost out of the chase with asking rate touching 15 with eight overs to spare.
