LPI: In the last league match of IPL 2023, RCB faced a 6 wicket loss against Gujarat Titans. With this defeat, the RCB team was out of the playoff race. Let us tell you, Virat Kohli scored a brilliant century in this match for RCB, but even his innings were not enough to win the team. Virat turned a century in this match, but an embarrassing record was also added to his name.
Shameful registration in the name of Virat
Virat Kohli has now become the third player in IPL history to lose two matches in which he scored a century. Virat is the top century scorer in IPL and has 7 centuries to his name. But two of 7 centuries came on those occasions when his RCB team had to face defeat. Prior to the loss against Gujarat, Virat had made a century against Gujarat Lions in 2016. The RCB team was also defeated in that match.
Samson and Amla also on the list
Sanju Samson and Hashim Amla are also included in the list of players who lost even after scoring two centuries in IPL. Samson reached that century twice in 2019 and 2021 when his team Rajasthan Royals lost. On the other hand, speaking of Hashim Amla, he scored both centuries in the 2017 IPL in which he lost to his Punjab Kings team.
Virat Kohli did amazing
Virat Kohli looked on pace from the start of the innings. He scored 101 runs off 61 balls, which included 13 fours and 1 six. It was thanks to him that the RCB team was able to score a great goal. Kohli had also previously played a 100-run innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad. This was the eighth century for him in T20 cricket. Kohli has scored 7 centuries in IPL and a century in international T20 cricket.
