RCB’s star batsman, Virat Kohli, put on an extraordinary show of his batting abilities, matching Chris Gayle’s record for the most centuries in IPL history. This incredible achievement took place during an IPL 2023 match against Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

Kohli’s sixth IPL century was an absolute marvel, taking only 62 balls to reach. His aggressive and dominant style of play was on full display from the very beginning, leaving fans in awe of his exceptional talent. The stadium was buzzing with excitement as the crowd passionately cheered on Kohli throughout his stunning innings.

What made this century even more remarkable was that it marked the first time in IPL history that a century was scored in both innings of a match. Aside from this, the century marked a significant milestone for Kohli, ending his four-year wait for an IPL century.

Earlier in the game, SRH’s Heinrich Klaasen also achieved this feat, setting a challenging target of 187 runs for RCB to chase.
