Virat Kohli’s Return: Anticipated Milestones in IPL 2024 Opener

Date:

Star Indian cricketer Virat Kohli is set to make his highly anticipated return to the field during the opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, where his team, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), will face off against Chennai Super Kings (CSK). Kohli’s comeback marks his first appearance since January 2024, following his absence from the recently concluded Test series against England.

The match against Chennai presents Kohli with an opportunity to etch his name in the record books once again. If he manages to score just six runs, he will become the first Indian cricketer to amass 12,000 runs in T20 cricket. Currently standing at 11,994 runs in 376 T20 matches, Kohli is on the brink of achieving this monumental milestone.

Additionally, Kohli aims to become the first Indian batsman to record 100 50+ scores in T20s, a feat only achieved by Chris Gayle and David Warner so far. Furthermore, he is poised to become only the second batter to score 1000 runs against Chennai Super Kings in the IPL, needing just 15 runs to achieve this milestone.

With an illustrious IPL career behind him, Kohli remains the highest run-scorer in the tournament’s history. Having amassed 7263 runs in 237 matches at an average of 37.24 and a strike rate of 130.02, Kohli’s IPL journey is marked by seven centuries and 50 fifties, making him one of the most prolific batters in the league.

In the previous IPL season, Kohli showcased his batting prowess by finishing as the fourth-highest run-getter, accumulating 639 runs at an impressive average of 53.25 and a strike rate of 139.82. Despite his stellar performances, RCB fell short of reaching the playoffs.

As the IPL 2024 kicks off, all eyes will be on Kohli as he looks to lead his team to victory and add more milestones to his illustrious career in the world of cricket.
