Kohli’s achievement came during Royal Challenger Bangalore’s match against Kings XI Punjab which they lost to Punjab by eight wickets at Sharjah Cricket Stadium on Thursday evening. He has played 185 matches in IPL all from his parent franchise RCB and has made 15 appearances in Champions League T20. He is now the leading run-scorer in the entire history of IPL with 5,716 runs in 185 matches.
On this achievement, Kohli explained his strong emotional bond with RCB and how honoured he feels being a part of the team since 2008.
