Before the Delhi Capitals and Royal Challengers Bangalore match on Saturday at the Arun Jaitley Stadium, Virat Kohli, a renowned player, touched the feet of his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma, which was well received by the audience and social media. Kohli, who is from Delhi, played his first match at home after a year and met his coach before the game.
In the Indian Premier League match between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Capitals on Saturday, Faf du Plessis, the captain of RCB, won the toss and chose to bat first. RCB also included Kedar Jadhav, a strong middle-order batsman, in their playing XI. On the other hand, Delhi Capitals selected Mukesh Kumar and Mitchell Marsh, an Australian all-rounder, in their playing XI. Mukesh was brought in as a replacement for Anrich Nortje, a South African pace bowler who had to return home due to personal reasons.
Virat Kohli achieved a milestone by becoming the first player to score 7000 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
In his 225th IPL innings, the 34-year-old batsman hit a cut shot against Axar Patel that sped to the fence to reach the 7000-run milestone. As a result of Kohli scoring 100 T20 runs against DC in the same game early on, DC also happens to be Kohli’s favorite IPL foe.
Shikhar Dhawan, who is currently in second place on the all-time IPL run scorers list with 6536 runs, is well behind Kohli.
Kohli will look to stamp his authority at his home ground with another match winning knock for the franchise.
