Virat Kohli is waiting for a mega record .. Just 71 runs are needed
ABU DHABI: If Virat Kohli’s batting alone were to be clicked today, he would have set a huge record in T20 matches.
The second part of the IPL 2021 series, which was stopped halfway by Corona, is taking place in the United Arab Emirates starting yesterday (Sep. 19).
In the first match, Chennai Indians defeated Mumbai Indians by 20 runs and today Kolkata – Bangalore teams are wrestling. The goalie, who is currently winning the toss in this match, has opted for batting. The Royal Challengers Bangalore squad includes Virat Kohli (c), Devadath Padikkal, Sreekar Bharat, Glenn Maxwell, AB de Villiers (wk), Vanindu Hasaranga, Sachin Baby, Kyle Jamison, Mohammad Siraj, Herschelle Patel and Yuvendra Sahal. Similarly, the Kolkata squad includes Shubman Gill, Nitish Rana, Rahul Tripathi, Ian Morgan (c), Andre Russell, Dinesh Karthik (wk), Sunil Narine, Venkatesh Iyer, Loki Ferguson, Varun Chakraborty and Prasidh Krishna. However, Virat Kohli and Bangalore fans are going to watch the match with a bit of sadness. The reason is that this is my last IPL series as the captain of the Bangalore team and the goalie has announced that he will continue in the team as a player only from next year. Despite Virat Kohli being the successful captain of the Indian team, he could not even win an ICC trophy for India. Goalie’s captaincy is shattered at key stages such as the Champions Trophy, the 50-over World Cup series, and the Test Championship series. Due to this, he will step down as the captain of the Indian T20 team with the upcoming T20 World Cup series. It was at this point that he decided to step down as captain in the IPL series as well. In this situation, if captain Virat Kohli scores 71 runs in this series, he will become the first Indian batsman to cross 10,000 runs in T20 matches. He is also the 5th batsman to score 10,000 runs in T20I matches worldwide. Currently, Virat Kohli has scored 9,929 runs in 311 matches in all T20 cricket. The goalie’s strike rate is 133.95. This includes 5 cents and 72 fifties.
Chris Gayle leads the T20I with 14,261 runs in 446 matches. In second place is Pollard, who has played 561 matches and scored 11,159 runs, including 56 fifties. Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik is third with 10,080 runs in 436 matches, including 66 fifties. Australian David Warner is in 4th place. (10017 runs in 304 matches)
As the captaincy of the kholi is gonna end, its expectation that virat kholi will reach 10,000 Runs as being captain on the Team. This creates hugh anticipation among his fans because he is just 71 Runs lags to reach it.
