NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli has recently added one more feather to his already-filled cap of achievements by becoming the first batsman to smash 250 sixes for one team in the IPL. Associated with the RCB team since its inception in 2008, he achieved this milestone while taking 18 runs from 7 balls, studded with 2 sixes and a four.

In accomplishing this feat, Kohli also rises to the ranks of legendary players, like Chris Gayle, Rohit Sharma, and AB de Villiers. He is one of the only four players to have 250 or more sixes in the IPL. Gayle leads this exclusive club with a staggering 357 maximums, followed closely by Rohit Sharma with 275, and de Villiers with 251. Kohli’s previous tally stood at 248 sixes before this match, underscoring the significance of his achievement.

Furthermore, Kohli’s feat saw him surpass Gayle to claim the top spot on the list of most sixes for a single team in T20 cricket. Gayle, who previously held this record with 263 sixes for RCB across various tournaments including the Champions League, now relinquishes the throne to his former teammate.

Kohli’s dominance with the bat and his unwavering commitment to RCB’s cause have endeared him to fans worldwide, solidifying his status as one of the greatest cricketers of his generation. As he continues to rewrite the record books and push the boundaries of excellence, his legacy as a cricketing icon only grows stronger with each passing milestone.
