XtraTime Web Desk: Skipper Virat Kohli would love to chase in the raining games for his team Royal Challenges Bengaluru in this edition of Indian Premier League.

Kohli scored 70 runs in just 40 balls as his team chased down 182 runs against Delhi Daredevils with a over to spare. RCB still has a chance to qualify for the play offs. Kohli feels the league table is still wide open.

“We were not clinical with the ball, but these guys played well. The chase, however, was ideal. Bowling first is better at this stage, because it’s easier for batsmen to take responsibility. You can almost set up the game how you like. That’s what works for our boys,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

AB de Villiers was also in great touch scoring 72 off 37 balls and Kohli said that there is nothing easier than playing alongside Proteas legend.

“It is lovely batting with AB. We have done this many times in the past. It was a stiff chase, but in the mid-innings break, AB told me ‘don’t worry, we’ll get this’, and that helped me get in the zone. I don’t need to say much. It has been an honour for me to bat with him.”

Kohli said that he got out in his bid to up the net run-rate.

“I was disappointed getting out since we had the run-rate in control. Wanted to finish it with three overs to spare and get the net run-rate up. It cost us 10-12 balls to get the victory.
