Kohli was again unlucky last night (April 22) as he lost his 4th toss in a row in IPL this year. However, at the end of the contest, he was a happy skipper as RCB defeated Rising Pune Supergiants by 13 runs.

After Pune captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni won the toss and elected to bowl first, Kohli said with a smile, "Firstly, I think I need to send someone else for the toss, I have lost 4 in a row now. Not a good stat that. It is a very strange situation where teams chasing have won the match. I think people are getting smarter at chasing totals."

In the ongoing IPL, teams batting second have won 14 times (till yesterday). Only 2 times has side batting first has won and both occasions it was RCB.

With RCB full of big hitters, most teams want them to bat first and it has been the case so far.

RCB next face Gujarat Lions (GL) tomorrow (April 24) in Rajkot. Will Kohli walk out for the toss or send someone else?
