Against Punjab, Kohli got a start. He was knocking the ball, hitting two oundaries off Arshdeep Singh in the second over and then a  six off left-arm spinner Harpreet Brar. The 33-year-old became the first batter to reach the 6500-run mark in the IPL. 

In the fourth over, Kohli was dismissed off Kagiso Rabada. The South African pacer cramped the batter with a short of length delivery and the RCB player tried to play the one-legged pull. The ball brushed the glove and then lobs off the thigh pad to Rahul Chahar at short fine.
