Virat Kohli was the anchor in RCB’s win over the Gujrat Titans as he advanced to 54 ball 73. After a disappointing season that included just 236 runs in 13 games, Virat Kohli finally showed his skills against the Gujrat Titans. At 73, Kohli has scored over 300 runs in the IPL every season since 2010. This makes him the best run-getter in IPL history.
RCB did well to limit GT to 168 in the first innings. Virat and Faf du Plessis then gave RCB the perfect start, batting past until 15th when Faf was suffering from gout. It was then Glenn Maxwell who emerged and hit an 18 ball 40 to hand the win to RCB. Virat Kohli was awarded Man of the Match for his cool 73 high.

“90 minutes hit the net” – Virat Kohli on training before the GT game
In the post-game presentation, Kohli spoke about his difficult season and his determination to get back on his feet. He said: “I can go on. It was an important game. I was disappointed that I didn’t do much for my team and that’s what bothers me, not the stats. Today was a game where I was able to make a difference for the team. Put us in a good position. There are expectations based on the performance you have given. You have to keep the right perspective.”
He added: “You can forget about the process to live up to expectations. I’ve worked really hard. I hit 90 minutes on the net yesterday. I came in very free and relaxed. I will not stand here ungrateful for all that I have achieved. Shami’s very first shot made me feel like I could hit long balls over the fielder’s head. I knew tonight was the night to move on. It was wonderful to have so much support in this issue. I’m forever grateful for all the love I’ve never seen before.”
