Royal Challengers Bangalore lost 5/7 matches at the beginning and with that
abysmal start, their fans thought that they were as good as out of IPL 2016. But at that half-way stage, captain Virat Kohli had other ideas and refused to accept defeat.
After that from May 7 to 22 (the second half for the tournament), they had to play
out of their skins to qualify. In a way it was a 15-day tournament chase that
Kohli took head on.
