Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB)‘s Virat Kohli stole the show with an outstanding century against Rajasthan Royals (RR) in the 19th match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, setting Twitter ablaze with excitement.

Virat Kohli’s record-breaking century

Kohli’s scintillating knock illuminated the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur as he became the first player to notch up a century in the IPL 2024 season. His innings took RCB to a formidable total, marking his eighth century in IPL history, setting a new benchmark for the tournament.

A historic feat amid a competitive season

The IPL 2024 season had seen fierce competition, with Shubman Gill‘s 89 being the highest individual score until Kohli’s monumental innings. Kohli’s century came off just 67 balls, showcasing his prowess and dominance in the tournament. With this achievement, Kohli extends his lead as the player with the most IPL centuries.

“The wicket looks quite different from when you are in the middle. It looks flat but as soon as you are there, the pace changes quite quickly. Assessing the pitch, we needed someone to bat through and get to 180-185. I knew that I couldn’t be over-aggressive today,” said Kohli in the mid-innings chat.

RCB posts a competitive total

Benefitting from Kohli’s remarkable century, during which he crafted an undefeated innings of 113 runs from 72 deliveries, comprising 12 boundaries and 4 maximums, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) posted a formidable total of 183/3 in their allotted 20 overs. Additionally, skipper Faf du Plessis contributed a brisk 44 off 33 balls, supported by 2 fours and an equal number of sixes.
