In the 2024 edition of the competition, Virat Kohli stands a good chance of topping his performance from the 2016 IPL season. When he scored 973 runs from 16 games with an average of 81.08 and a strike rate of 152.03, including four hundred and seven fifties, eight years ago, Kohli set the record for most runs in an IPL season.

The Royal Challengers Bengaluru have been the ultimate comeback kings in the exciting drama of the IPL 2024, winning six straight games to claim a postseason berth and gaining the hearts of supporters in the process.

Even more amazing is how they turned things around after getting off to a sluggish start—they had only one win in their first seven games. And none other than Virat Kohli, the maestro, is at the forefront of this effort at atonement. RCB astonished the fans after producing an impressive comeback at the Indian Premier League 2024 by winning six games in a row and qualifying for the playoffs.

Virat Kohli has been crucial for RCB’s road to the playoffs:

RCB’s playoff run has been greatly aided by Virat Kohli, who is currently wearing the orange cap in the IPL 2024. At the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, Kohli hit 47 runs in a pivotal encounter against CSK, assisting his team in winning by a score of 27.

For Kohli to surpass his 2016 record, 266 runs are needed. Kohli has three matches left to accomplish this milestone if RCB makes it to the final.

On Wednesday, one team from the Rajasthan Royals and Royal Challengers Bengaluru will be eliminated from the IPL 2024. The two teams compete in Ahmedabad’s eliminator. The victor advances to face SunRisers Hyderabad in Qualifier 2 on Friday, and the loser’s journey is over.

Even though the Rajasthan Royals are coming off four losses and a game that was rained out, RCB has won six straight games to send a message to their rivals that they will not be taken lightly in the playoffs. RR, the 2008 IPL winners, suddenly find themselves as the underdogs, when a couple of weeks ago they were red-hot favourites.
