Is there any similarity between Virat Kohli and records? Probably not because every milestone now seems too small when Virat Kohli's bat speaks. Virat Kohli, one of the most successful batsmen of the current era, has taken cricket to a new height today with his hunger for runs! 12-13 years ago, when a new cricket was started in the form of IPL, hardly anyone would have thought that some of these players would rule the world in the future one day. Virat Kohli was also one of those names which was brought by Royal Challengers Bangalore franchise in their team and captain Kohli is still part of the same team which is a record as no other player has the record of being the part of one team for so long. Some other stars have emerged from cricket like IPL but there is hardly anyone like Virat Kohli. Does Virat Kohli play to make records, maybe not, because if he had played for the records, he might have said goodbye to cricket long ago. 


Let's see some such IPL records on which Virat Kohli's name is registered!

973 Runs in 2016

 

973, this number is not written by mistake but is the record set by Virat Kohli in the 2016 season of IPL. In 16 innings, Virat Kohli scored 973, with an average of 81.09 and led his team to the final once again. This record is still established under the name of Virat Kohli. Many more batsmen came but could not even wipe this record.

 

Record of scoring most centuries in a season

 

Yes, this record is also intact in the name of Virat Kohli in the season in which Virat Kohli scored 973 runs in his 16 innings. In the same season, Virat Kohli had scored 4 centuries, which is still a record. Before the start of the season, Virat Kohli did not have any century to his name and there were questions on his batting as well. All of which were answered by Virat Kohli with his stormy batting and got his team entered in the finals.

 

Record of most runs in the history of IPL

 

Yes, another record on which Virat Kohli’s name is also there. 6076 runs in 191 innings including 5 centuries and 40 half-centuries. Virat Kohli is still the highest run-scorer in IPL history, followed by Shikhar Dhawan, who has 5577 runs, who is the second highest run-scorer in IPL history. Chris Gayle has the most centuries in the history of IPL, who has scored 6 centuries. Virat Kohli is one of the batsmen to score the second highest century with 5 centuries. Looking at the current form of Virat Kohli, it seems that this record will also be registered by Virat Kohli with 6 or more centuries.

 

Record the partnership for the most number of times

 

There have been four times in the history so far when the batsmen have partnership for more than 200 runs for any wicket. While there have been thrice when Virat Kohli has added more than 200 runs, twice now with de Villiers (229 and 215*) and once with Chris Gayle (204*) against Delhi Daredevils in 2012. The fourth partnership was between Adam Gilchrist and Shaun Marsh of 206 runs against Royal Challengers Bangalore in 2011.
