In Pictures: Virat Kohli’s Magnificent Hundred Against Pune
Virat entered into record books as he became the only batsman to score two tons in a single IPL season.
It was a must win game for the Royal Challengers Bangalore as they faced MS Dhoni led Rising Pune Supergiants at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru.
Captain Kolhi won the toss and elected to bowl first, but things did not really go well for him as Pune posted a daunting total of 191/6 in their 20 overs, courtesy flurry of mis-fields and dropped catches from the RCB end.
RCB needed runs at the rate of 9.6 per over to win this crucial tie. But why to worry, when you have our Kohli. The ever reliable Indian batsman proved his metal once again as he scored a 85 ball 108 Not Out to guide his team to a comprehensive win.
The duo added 50 runs in just 6.6 overs. Rahul and Kohli patched up a first wicket partnership of 94 runs to provide a solid base for the RCB chase.
