As it was his team's first offence of the season under the IPL's Code of Conduct relating to minimum over-rate offences, Kohli was fined Rs 12 lakh on Saturday.
Bottom-placed RCB finally ended their winning draught in the ongoing season as Kohli's scintillating 53-ball 67 followed by AB de Villiers (59* off 38) and Marcus Stoinis' (28* off 16) fruitful knocks guided them to a thumping eight-wicket victory over KXIP at the I.S. Bindra Stadium.
It was the 85-run stand between Kohli and de Villers before the South African got involved in a match-winning 46-run partnership with Stoinis which handed Bangalore a much needed win.
Defending 174, Punjab bowlers not only failed in getting wickets but also leaked runs as the visitors crossed the line with four balls to spare.
