Virat Kohli has turned out to be the thorn in the flesh of a number of opponents in his illustrious career across formats and tournaments. The 30-year-old is currently plying his trade for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The Challengers have undoubtedly strained to find their feet, but Virat has stood tall to the challenges.
He is presently the leading run-scorer for the Challengers in this edition of this IPL. He has notched 378 runs from nine matches at an average of 42.00 with one century and a couple of fifties. Throughout the tournament, he has opened and hasn’t flattered to deceive. Quite expectantly, he would be a force to reckon with for the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the upcoming game at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru.
He is in red hot form as he smashed a 57-ball century against the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. The knock helped his team garner its second victory in the T20 extravaganza by 10 runs. The Super Kings, also the table toppers, can’t afford to let Virat get away.
Record against the opposition (CSK) in the IPL:
In 22 innings, Kohli has 738 runs at an average of 38.84 average with six fifties.
The 30-year-old is the only player with 650 plus IPL runs against CSK.
Record at the venue (Chinnaswamy, Bangalore):
In 81 innings, Virat has 2690 runs at an average of 38.42 average. He also boasts of three centuries and 19 half-centuries.
In his last 5 T20 innings at Bangalore, Virat has scores of 41, 84, 46, 72, 12.
In the IPL 2019, he has been in impressive form with scores of 6, 46, 3, 23, 84, 41, 67, 8, 100
He costs 11 credits in the batsmen category and is picked by 93% of players. Bearing in mind his form, making him the captain in Dream XI has to be the way forward.
