Virat Kohli, arguably the best batsman in world cricket across all three formats, is unstoppable in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2016). Kohli has smashed 4 centuries, which is now a record, and he is looking good to increase the number. Till last week, many had already written Royal Challengers Bangalore off, but under the able leadership of Virat Kohli, they are now looking good to finish in top 2 before the play-offs.

The numbers shared below prove that Virat Kohli is world’s best batsman at the moment.

Games played: 13

Runs scored: 865

Highest score: 113

Average: 86.50

Strike rate: 155.01

Fours: 72

Sixes: 36

Virat Kohli has scored four centuries and 5 half centuries in the 13 matches he has played, thus continuing his good form indicated in recent tournaments for India. His closest competitor in terms of runs scored is his team mate AB De Villiers, who also has struck peak form at just thr right time. Together they could lift the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s to a place in the top four of the IPL and qualify for the play-offs
