Virat Kohli smashed his fourth hundred of IPL 2016 against Kings XI Punjab. Kohli, who is the leading run scorer of IPL 2016 with 865 runs to his credit after 12 matches, was trending everywhere on the social media as all his fans, cricketers, former cricketers and pundits got together to hail Kohli’s brilliance.
During his knock, Kohli went past Suresh Raina to become the first batsman to score 4000 runs in IPL history. He also became the first batsman to score four centuries and go past the 800-run mark in a single IPL edition. Here’s how Twitter reacted to his feats:
One more century for @imVkohli. I’ve run out of adjectives. Find your own…

Even if you play book cricket and mark the pages, you can’t score a century in a 15 over game!
