Indian Cricketer Virat Kohli Felicitated with His Sixth IPL Century
Cricketer Virat Kohli has once again made headlines after leading his team, Royal Challengers Bangalore, to a dominating win against Sunrisers Hyderabad at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. Kohli’s stunning century during the match has not only set social media abuzz but also secured RCB two crucial points in the ongoing tournament.
Video Call with Wife Anushka Sharma Goes Viral
As if Kohli’s record-breaking performance wasn’t enough, videos and pictures of the cricketer talking to his wife, Bollywood actress Anushka Sharma, over a video call after the match, have gone viral on social media. Anushka, who couldn’t be present at the stadium to support Kohli, took to Instagram to praise her husband for his outstanding knock, sharing a collage image on her stories and writing, “He is (a bomb emoticon). What an inning.”
Kohli’s Record-Breaking Ongoing IPL Season
Kohli’s ton against Sunrisers Hyderabad was his first in the ongoing IPL 2023 season, and he has now equaled former teammate Chris Gayle’s record of six centuries scored in league history. It has been four years since Kohli hit his last century in the IPL.
The RCB opener has been in superb form throughout the tournament, but his slow starts have often been criticized. However, on Thursday night, he proved his doubters wrong by reaching his century in just 62 deliveries, dominating the powerplay in addition to the middle overs.
Dismissing Kohli proved to be a tough challenge for the Sunrisers’ bowling attack, with Bhuvneshwar Kumar finally taking Kohli’s wicket in the 18th over after he reached the milestone.
Kohli’s jaw-dropping performance against the Sunrisers Hyderabad has not only made him a star once again but also helped in getting his team one step closer to the playoffs. Fans are eagerly waiting to see what more this record-breaking cricketer has in store for the ongoing IPL season.
