Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli, who went to play against Kolkata Knight Riders in the second leg of the Indian Premier League 2021 on Monday, has got an amazing record in the IPL. Kohli is playing his 200th match in IPL today. Interestingly, he also made his IPL debut against KKR.
Not only this, Kohli also played his 50th and 150th match in IPL against this team. In this way, Kohli is the player to play debut match, 50th match, 150th match and 200th match against KKR in IPL.
Kohli has become the fifth player to play his 200th match in the IPL. Before him, Chennai Super Kings captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Suresh Raina, who played for CSK only, Kolkata Knight Riders veteran wicketkeeper batsman Dinesh Karthik and Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma have reached this figure.
Even if Kohli had scored 71 runs in today’s match against Kolkata Knight Riders, he would have become the fifth batsman in the world to complete 10000 runs in the history of T20 cricket. Before him, this position has been achieved by Chris Gayle, Kieron Pollard, Shoaib Malik and David Warner.
