Virat Kohli’s IPL Centuries

Virat Kohli, arguably the best batsman for Royal Challengers Bangalore, has broken his teammate Chris Gayle’s IPL record for most hundreds. Virat Kohli’s centuries in IPL witnessed another addition as the former RCB Captain gets his eighth century for RCB on Sunday at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru against the Gujarat Titans, with his wife Anushka Sharma present in the stands.

Virat Kohli completed his IPL century in the final over and, surprisingly, he chose not to celebrate because he realised he had a more important task at hand: helping Royal Challengers Bangalore to a high total.
