Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli has achieved yet another feat as he has become the only batsman to cross the 500 runs mark in five seasons of the Indian Premier League.
During RCB’s 10-wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, Kohli went past the 500 runs while batting at 34, and he was not out at 48.
Before the start of the eleventh edition of the tournament, Kohli and David Warner led this chart having scored more than 50 runs in four editions of the tournament.
Virat Kohli has scored 500+ runs in a season of IPL, most number of times! 5 times, precisely.
What. A. Guy.
