It was, arguably, RCB's strongest batting line-up ever and showed that Kohli's best batting position in the IPL is as an opener. All five of his centuries for RCB have come when he opened, and his average and strike rate when opening are vastly superior to his good returns at No. 3. … [Read more...] about How the Royal Challengers Bangalore have miscalculated over the years
