The captain of the Indian team and the Royal Challengers Bangalore team, Virat Kohli has been the best white-ball player India has ever produced after Sachin Tendulkar. He has 50+ averages across all the 3 formats and certainly demands respect in this aspect. Virat made his international debut in 2008, and had a major drop in the form and was not consistent up until 2013-14. But since then, he has been the most prolific run-scorer in the international cricket and the Indian Premier League. In the year 2016, Virat became the only player to hit 4 centuries in a single edition of the Indian Premier League.
The highest run-scorer for the Indian team in T20Is and the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the India Premier League, Virat Kohli has become the first Indian batsman to score 10,000 T20 Runs. Virat breached this crucial landmark during the match against Mumbai Indians in the Match 39 of the Indian Premier League 2021.
In this pursuit, the captain of RCB has overtaken David Warner in terms of runs in the T20 format. Now he stands at the 4th position in the highest run-getter in the shortest format.
Here are twitter reactions:
The Royal Challengers Bangalore have got off to a great start in their clash against Mumbai Indians in the Match 39 of IPL 2021. Although Devdutt Padikkal was dismissed early by Bumrah, Kohli along with Srikar Bharat have helped the team to lay a strong foundation.
The duo added 68 runs for the second wicket partnership which will be beneficial for the other batters to play their natural game and continue the pressure over the Mumbai Indians bowlers. At present, Glenn Maxwell and Virat are playing well and would hope to cross the highest total of 185 in the Phase 2.
