Virat Kohli equals Chris Gayle’s rare record after breaching 700-run mark this IPL season | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Royal Challengers Bengaluru‘s star opener Virat Kohli on Saturday equalled another RCB legend Chris Gayle‘s record for scoring most 700-plus runs in an IPL season.
Kohli achieved the feat in the must-win clash against Chennai Super Kings at the Chinnaswamy with his cracking 29-ball 47-run knock.
This is now the second instance, Kohli has scored 700-plus runs in an IPL season — 973 runs scored in 2016 season.
Gayle had previously scored 733 runs in the 2012 edition and 708 in the following season.
This is now also the 10th instance of a batter aggregating 700-plus runs in a season.
On his way to a cracking 47-run knock, Kohli hit three fours and 4 colossal sixes.
Kohli now has 37 sixes in IPL 2024 — second most after 38 maximums which he fired in the 2016 edition of the league.
Kohli was dismissed by Mitchell Santner after Daryl Mitchell took a sharp catch at the long-on fence in the 10th over.
