When it comes to Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), it is its skipper Virat Kohli, who is undoubtedly the man, everybody looks forward to watching. With each passing game, he continues to get stronger and would again be the man to watch out for, as his side takes on the defending champion Mumbai Indians (MI), on Tuesday.

Kohli, as said earlier, has been in phenomenal form with the bat, and is evident he being the top-run scorer for the side this season, so far. Being a genuine contender for the Orange Cap, he would once again be the favourite to clinch it this season. However, that won't give him much relief as his side has been struggling, despite all the fine performances from him.
