Virat Kohli Smashes First Century of IPL 2024

Virat Kohli, the very name that sends shivers down bowlers’ spines, is back in top form!  The IPL witnessed a masterclass in Jaipur on Saturday night, as Kohli smashed the first century of the season against the Rajasthan Royals. This phenomenal knock, his 8th IPL ton, is a true cause for celebration for all his fans!

 

Coming off a two-month break, there were whispers about Kohli’s batting touch. But fret no more, because the King has silenced his doubters in style! After warming up with back-to-back fifties, Kohli unleashed his full power against the Royals.

 

Batting first alongside skipper Faf du Plessis, Kohli stitched together a majestic opening partnership of 125 runs.  His aggressive style was on full display as he feasted on any loose deliveries, sending the ball soaring over the ropes with effortless ease. The crowd erupted with every boundary, their cheers echoing Kohli’s dominance.

 

Reaching his fifty in a mere 39 balls, Kohli didn’t slow down. Unlike other batsmen who struggled on the tricky pitch, Kohli seemed to be batting on a different surface altogether. His exceptional technique and power-hitting propelled him to a century in just 67 deliveries! An unbeaten knock of 113, decorated with 4 sixes and 12 boundaries, became the cornerstone of RCB’s score of 183.

 

While the final result might not have gone RCB’s way, Kohli’s individual brilliance was a sight to behold. This century wasn’t just his first of the season, it also tied his highest IPL score – a feat achieved back in 2016.

 

But Kohli’s magic goes beyond just runs.  His 125-run stand with du Plessis cemented their place as one of the best opening partnerships in IPL history.  And to top it all off, Kohli became the first player to ever cross the 7,500-run mark in the IPL, a true testament to his consistent excellence over the years.

 

Virat Kohli is back, and it’s a glorious sight for cricket fans!  His hunger for runs and his ability to dismantle bowling attacks remain unparalleled. This century not only kickstarted his IPL campaign but also served as a powerful reminder – King Kohli reigns supreme!  We can’t wait to see what other magical knocks he has in store for us this season!

 

Speaking about his knock, Kohli said “The wicket looks different from up there when you’re not playing. It seems flat. But when you see it holding up in the pitch, you see pace is slowing down. I feel this is an effective total. If we get the change of pace and lengths right, we should be good. I’m not coming in with premeditation. I was 12 off 10, I don’t want to be over-aggressive, want to keep the bowler guessing. They want me to go hard and get me out. It’s just experience and maturity. I play the conditions and have the game ready,”.
