IPL 2018, MI vs RCB: Virat Kohli Becomes Highest Run-Scorer In IPL History, Pips Suresh Raina!

IPL 2018, MI vs RCB: Royal Challengers Bangalore are in dire need of Virat Kohli sticking around to see them home. RCB are 76 for 4 in 10 overs

Virat Kohli needed just 32 runs to surpass Suresh Raina and become the highest run-getter in the history of Indian Premier League (IPL). It was Mumbai Indians (MI) who hosted Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Wankhede with both the teams looking for a win. Rohit Sharma lost the toss — the fourth time in a row — and Virat Kohli had no hesitation in opting to bowl first. Umesh Yadav gave RCB a dream start, picking up two wickets with the first two balls of the game, which is when we felt it was going to be a low scoring match. But Rohit Sharma had other ideas, he scored 94 off 52 balls, slingshooting MI’s score to 213.

Meanwhile, RCB started the chase and it was heart-warming to see the captain leading from the front, opening with Quinton de Kock. Quinton was out when the score was 40.
