Virat Kohli has scored six centuries in IPL history, but this is his first century as a player.
This is Virat’s sixth century in IPL. At the beginning of the year 2016, Virat Kohli had scored four centuries in the IPL, when he was the captain of RCB, while in the year 2019 Virat Kohli had also scored a century, even at that time he was captaining the team. That is to say, this is his first centenary as a player. Which is important in itself. Two centuries were scored in the IPL match on Thursday. Where there was a century-long drought and where it took two centuries. For the first time this feat happened in 2016, when Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers scored centuries for their RCB team. Then there was a match between Gujarat Lions and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Chris Gayle came on to open but was ruled out after scoring just six runs. Virat Kohli was playing at number two and AB de Villiers came in at number three. There was a partnership of over 200 races between the two. Virat Kohli scored 109 runs from just 55 balls, while AB de Villiers scored 129 runs from 52 balls. This was the first time two centuries had been scored in one match and one IPL innings. RCB had scored a huge score of 248 runs in this match and the Gujarat Lions team was dismissed for 104 runs. With this, the RCB captured this match for 144 runs. After this comes the year 2019. There was a match between SRH and RCB. In this, SRH openers Johnny Bairstow and David Warner scored centuries. While Johnny Bairstow hit 114 off 56 balls, David Warner hit 100 off 55 balls and went unbeaten to the finish. SRH scored 231 runs in this match and went on to win the match by 118 runs.
