Indian and Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli gave great account of himself as he spent more than 30 minutes with Sunrisers Hyderabad youngsters after the match on Saturday. SRH youngsters Abdul Samad, Abhishek Sharma, Priyam Garg, Sanjay Yadav, Shreevats Goswami, Sandeep Bavanaka, Virat Singh and Prithvi Raj Yarra along with spinner Rashid Khan were completely in attention as the captain of India kept giving master tips to them.
SRH had beaten RCB in the league encounter on Saturday but that did not deter Kohli to spend time with them. Not only Virat but AB DeVilliers was also surrounded by youngsters from SRH. Kohli and de Villiers were surrounded with the SRH rookies, videos and pictures of which were posted by the franchise on social media. SRH skipper David Warner and Kane Williamson were also seen having a chat with their RCB counterparts.

Royal Challengers Bangalore suffered a setback after they slumped to a third straight defeat, a five-wicket loss to resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad.
The SRH chase ebbed and flowed but, at one stage, after having lost both Manish Pandey, Wriddhiman Saha and Kane Williamson in quick succession. However, Jason Holder came in handy with the bat for SRH as his 26-run cameo off just 10 balls ensured victory for the Hyderabad-based franchise.
With 2 crucial points, Hyderabad have lifted themselves from the 7th spot of the IPL 2020 points table to the 4th spot, pushing Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals and Kolkata Knight Riders a spot below.
