IPL 2017 56th Match: Royal Challengers close out season with consolation win

Kohli changed his position in the batting order for the last match and batted at number 3.

Royal Challengers Bangalore got the better of Delhi Daredevils by 10 runs to end their forgettable campaign in the Indian Premier League 10 on a positive note, here on Sunday. Set a target of 132 against Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens, RCB were simply annihilated with not one batsman getting to double-digits. Royal Challengers Bangalore finished last this season, winning just three out of a total of 14 matches- their worst ever performance in the 10-years of the IPL. The win was RCB's third of the season and ended their six-match losing streak. Travis Head was caught short by a return throw from Shreyas Iyer but contributed 2-30 from his three overs with the ball.

Virat Kohli-led RCB have been miserable and they would want to get over this season as soon as possible.

The India captain, who is known to wear his heart on his sleeve, then tossed the award to his fans, which many have termed as a display of Kohli's humility.

"That six, honestly, I was looking to push this between the two fielders to try and pick up two but I think Corey (Anderson) bowled a cross-seam ball".
