In this regard, Kohli outperformed Bangladesh wicketkeeper Mushfiqur Rahim. Who has amassed 2989 runs at the Shere Bangla National Stadium in Dhaka? Rahim scored those many runs at an average of 33.96 with 18 fifties in 121 innings of T20 cricket at the venue.

Mahmudullah is in third place after amassing 2813 runs on the same field as Rahim in 130 innings. Averaging 28.7 points per innings and scoring eight fifty-sevens. With runs totals of 2749 and 2706 in T20 cricket at a single location, Alex Hales and Tamim Iqbal round out the top five.

Returning to Virat Kohli, he has scored 333 runs so far in IPL 2023 and is currently in excellent form. He is currently in second place in the Orange Cap race but was disappointed following the defeat to KKR.

“We missed a couple of opportunities, which cost us 25 to 30 runs. We really prepared ourselves well. In the end, we hit the fielder with balls that didn’t result in a wicket. What’s on the scoreboard and how to get them are what matter. Even while chasing, despite losing wickets, we were only needing one partnership to remain in the match. To get home, we only needed one partnership. To avoid giving away soft plays, we must be alert,” he said.

“On the road, we’ve had one victory and one defeat. We are not alarmed by it. To be prepared for the later stages of the tournament, we need to win some away games, Kohli said following the game,” he further added.
