Kohli not happy with his current form

Mumbai, May 10: Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli, pleased with his team's performance in the last two matches, especially against a strong team like Mumbai Indians said, it feels good to beat Harbhajan Singh's XI in their backyard.

Satisfied with the team's effort on Wednesday night Kohli said he was happy with the performance as his team defeated a strong Mumbai side by nine wickets at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

"To beat them at home is a good feeling for us," said Kohli after his team defeated Mumbai Indians by nine wickets to jump to fourth spot in the points table.

Kohli, leading the side in Daniel Vettori's absence, has turned the fortunes as RCB has registered two wins under his captaincy this season, as they are well placed at fourth, in the hunt for play-offs.

Though his captaincy has got positive reviews, critics aren't happy with the Kohli as a batsman, as the youngster has not fired yet in IPL 5. Apart from one half century Kohli has struggled to play a big innings.

The Delhi-lad has not been consistent in the tournament as he himself admitted the fact that he has not been playing well in IPL 5.

"I wasn't feeling too great when I was batting in the previous matches but my team-mates backed me," he said after an unbeaten knock of 36 off 25 balls against Mumbai Indians on Wednesday night.

The right-handed batsman has so far scored just 237 runs off 12 games at an average of just over 23 with just one fifty to his credit in the fifth edition of IPL.

Though his 25-ball 36 was promising, Kohli needs to regain touch to ease the pressure off AB de Villiers as he is the only reliable person as he shoulders the responsibility of finishing the matches without getting much support from the other end.

In order to solve RCB's batting woes, Kohli and other Indian players need to regain touch at the earliest.
