Virat Kohli is the new milestone-man of world cricket. From chasing Sachin Tendulkar’s record to writing his own glorious script in the Indian Premier League (IPL), Kohli sets a new record in almost every match he plays. Arguably the best batsman in world cricket across all three formats, he has set IPL 2016 on fire with his breathtaking performances with the bat. In IPL 2016, Kohli has smashed 4 centuries and taken his team Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) to the play-offs almost single-handedly.

In the match against Delhi Daredevils on Sunday, Virat Kohli became the first ever batsman to score 900 runs (or more) in a single season of the IPL. Chasing a small target of 139 runs, Virat Kohli anchored the RCB innings brilliantly after two early wickets of Chris Gayle and AB de Villiers, and scored yet another match-winning half century.
