In an extraordinary innings against Rajasthan Royals on Thursday night, Devdutt Padikkal's century and Virat Kohli's half-century paved way for an effortless victory for Royal Challengers Bangalore, the fourth consecutive time.

An adorable video of Virat Kohli dedicating his half-century to daughter Vamika went viral on social media after last night's match. The clip shows the RCB skipper making a hand gesture of cradlingand rocking the baby, and also blowing a flying kiss to his wife and Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma. Following his score in the match, Virat Kohli also became the first batsman in the IPL to cross 6000 runs. The Indian team captain recently opened up about how his life changed after the arrival of his daughter. "Things change quite drastically. Everything you have been used to changes," Kohli said.

"You have to be totally aligned with taking care of another life that's totally dependent on the mother primarily, but also dependent on the father. Both parents taking care of the child is a different environment altogether and something that we both (Anushka and him) have enjoyed thoroughly." The batsman added, "It's been life changing. It has been a connect which has been different from anything that both of us have experienced before. Just to see your child smile, it can't be put in words. I can't express how it feels from within. It's just been such a blessed and amazing period," the skipper added.
