Zaheer Khan has made his comeback to competitive cricket and how!

Pleasing a crowd that braved a 3 hour rain delay, Virat Kohli and Zaheer Khan turned in emphatic displays as the Royal Challengers Bangalore clinched a 24 run win over Chennai Super Kings on Saturday night. RCB are tied with Sunrisers Hyderabad on 18 points apiece. Though SRH have a game against Kolkata left their Net Run Rate is at very poor -0.031 to RCB's +0.457. A loss would bring that number down further and RCB could advance to the playoffs ahead on the basis of a better NRR.
