Dale Steyn returns to RCB, replaces Nathan Coulter-Nile

De Villiers also spoke about his former South African teammate Dale Steyn who has joined the RCB ranks after Nathan Coulter-Nile's participation in the IPL was curtailed due to worldwide commitments and personal reasons.

Still searching for their first win this season, Virat Kohli's men find challenges stacked against them, but playing after a small break the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) will be rejuvenated to make a mark against R Ashwin-led Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).

Numerous Indian publications, including the Times of India, are speculating that Steyn has been signed by the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).

Kohli (67) in company of AB de Villiers (59 not out) scripted a superb runchase, sharing a 85-run stand to lay the foundation. The RCB bowlers had allowed Sunrisers Hyderabad to post a mammoth 232 with centuries from Jonny Bairstow and David Warner before they were skittled out for 113 to lose the match by a massive 118 runs.

My little Tracker heart can hardly take Tiger Woods being in contention for a third consecutive major, yet here we are. Bryson DeChambeau , who shared the 18-hole lead with Koepka, went bogey-double bogey around the turn and shot 75.

Analysts say it may also indicate a change in the country's constitution that concentrates more authority in the young leader. World leaders pay attention to him and treat him as if he's some sort of normal leader.

And by the time Woods got to the first tee there was a large crowd congregating eager to catch a glimpse of the 43-year-old. Koepka fired a 71 despite a double-bogey disaster at the par-5 second hole, birdies at 15 and 18 salvaging a sub-par round.

RCB's batting too has looked equally inconsistent.

He also played for RCB between 2008 and 2010, taking 27 wickets. "We need to grab those chances, can't give excuses every day". RCB fans have had little to cheer for on the pitch this season and will be buoyed by the news of a fan-favorite returning to the side. "When you have clarity, you can take your chances better". With the losing streak, RCB became recorded the joint worst-ever start to an IPL season by any franchise along with Delhi Daredevils (now Capitals), who had also suffered defeat in their first six games in the 2013 season. However, Punjab failed to defend 197 against Mumbai Indians in their last match with Kieron Pollard's knock of 31-ball 83 blowing them away.

"I said to him (AB), that he is probably the best player of our generation and he showed it today", he said.
