Virat Kohli has been the captain of the Bangalore-based franchise since 2013 but is yet to win an IPL title. RCB came close to winning the trophy in 2016 but lost in the final to SunRisers Hyderabad. During that season, Kohli was in top form and scored 973 runs at an average of 81.08 and a strike rate of 152.03.
The RCB skipper is the highest run-getter in the cash-rich league. Since making his debut in 2008, Virat has scored a staggering 5,412 runs from 177 matches. He averages 37.84 and has a strike-rate of 131.61 with 5 centuries to his name in the franchise-based league.
The final of this year’s IPL will be played on November 10 in the UAE.
