Virat Kohli scripts history, becomes first player to achieve this incredible feat in IPL

Virat Kohli, on Saturday (May 18), added yet another feather to his illustrious cap, achieving the feat in the ongoing game between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bengaluru at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

He became the first-ever player to reach 3000 runs in the IPL at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium. Virat Kohli completed 3000 runs at the venue after reaching 12 runs, achieving the huge milestone in style by hitting Tushar Deshpande for a six.

He has become the first player to score 3000 runs at a single venue in the IPL. No player has even managed to touch the 2500-run mark at a venue in the IPL so far.

Rohit Sharma is second on the list with 2295 runs. Apart from Virat Kohli, Rohit is the only other batsman to score 2000 runs at a venue in the IPL. Rohit has scored 2295 runs at the Wankhede Stadium. Former RCB batsman AB de Villiers is third on the list for scoring 1960 runs at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

Most runs at a venue in IPL

  • 3005* V Kohli at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium
  • 2295 Rohit Sharma at Wankhede Stadium
  • 1960 AB de Villiers at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium

Kohli has been playing for the same team since the first season of the tournament. No player has played for the same team for this long in the IPL. MS Dhoni has been playing for Chennai Super Kings since 2008 but had to play for Rising Pune Supergiant for two years when the Chennai-based outfit was suspended.

Kohli has been in stunning form in the ongoing IPL 2024. He is the leading run-scorer in the competition. In 13 games before the ongoing match, he scored 661 runs with the help of one century and five half-centuries. With Kohli in stunning form, RCB will be hoping that their former captain guides them to a big total in the must-win clash against CSK.

RCB make steady start:

At the time of writing this report, RCB were on 60 for no loss after eight overs. RCB were 31 for 0 after 3 overs before rain halted the action for a while. After the restart, RCB struggled to bat in the same momentum and will be hoping to regain the momentum soon.
