In IPL 2023, the run machine Virat Kohli’s name is on the tongue of every cricket fan, irrespective of nation, after Thursday’s best-century innings against Sunrisers Hyderabad. During his century innings, Virat made many IPL records in his name, showing the range of his strokes, and entertained cricket fans a lot. During his 100-run innings, King Kohli faced 63 balls and hit 12 fours and four sixes. His half-century was completed in 35 balls, and his century in 62 balls.
Virat and captain Faf du Plessis’s partnership of 172 helped Royal Challengers Bangalore achieve the target of 187 runs required for victory by losing just two wickets with four balls remaining. With this much-needed win, RCB has kept their playoff hopes alive.
After the match, the Indian Premier League (IPL) tweeted a video of the moments of Virat completing his century with a six on his Twitter handle. The fans of King Kohli (be it from India or any other country) have given their reaction.
A cricket lover named Waqar Afridi wrote, “ALL HAIL THE KING. A Century of the Highest Quality by KING KOHLI. Right from Ball 1, he showed his Intent and the CHASE MASTER once again reminded everyone that I am the BOSS.”
Another fan wrote, “top performers from Asia dominating the T20 format with their exceptional skills and talent. It shows the strength and depth of batting talent in the region. Babar Azam, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, and KL Rahul are all amazing players and great ambassadors of the game. Their performances not only inspire the younger generation but also earn them the love and respect of cricket fans around the world.”
Another fan wrote, “6th IPL century, 1st in 4 years. King has lit up Hyderabad tonight. What an innings, the chase master on display! Take a bow, King.”
A fan, Umar, wrote, “I don’t understand why people even compare babar with Kohli, I am from Pakistan and being a neutral cricket lover, you can see virat is just class apart. He has way superior technique, range of shots and power hitting. Babar though, is a very good batter in his own way, but virat.”
Another cricket lover wrote, “What a knock…. Simply sensational. His hunger to perform soo well over the years, and the manner in which he has overcome his critics with his class….and all of this right when it mattered most… Woww.”
