Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli set two new records in the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament when he played a match winning knock of 108 not out to beat Rising Pune Supergiants (RPS) by seven wickets.
Apart from being the only batsman to hit two centuries in a single edition of the IPL - he hit an unbeaten 100 against Gujarat Lions at Rajkot on April 24, Kohli is the only captain to score 500 plus runs in three IPL editions, including 505 in 2015 and 634 in 2013.
"Scoring 541 in eight games RCB played so far this season, Kohli surpassed maestro Sachin Tendulkar's record of 553 in 2011 and 618 in 2010 in IPL's two editions as captain of Mumbai Indians," cricket statistician H.R. Gopala Krishna told IANS.
