Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli is yet to fire in Indian Premier League 2020 as he has scored 3, 1 and 14 in the three matches so far. However, the 31-year-old will aim to make a solid comeback as he has a chance to make history when his side take on Rajasthan Royals in the Match No. 15 of IPL 2020 on Saturday.
Kohli needs to add 82 runs to his tally to become the first Indian in the world to aggregate 9000 runs in T20 cricket.
Overall, he would become the seventh batsman to achieve this milestone.
Most Runs in T20 cricket:
|AB de Villiers||313||8791||133*||37.4||150.22||4||64|
In 269 innings, Kohli has amassed 8,918 runs in T20s at an average of 40.72 and a strike rate of 134.24. He has registered five hundreds and 64 fifties to his name.
Also, Virat is 70 shy of becoming the first player to amass 5,500 runs in the IPL. The RCB skipper has played 180 IPL matches in which he has registered 5,430 runs – the most by any player in the tournament.
He has five tons and 36 fifties under his belt at a strike rate of 131.12.
Meanwhile, RCB, who have registered two wins in three games, are currently in the playoffs spot and can even go top of the points table if they manage to defeat RR.
On the other hand, Steve Smith-led Rajasthan have played three games so far out of which they have won two and lost one. They are currently sitting at fifth position in the points table.
