Former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper and star batsman Virat Kohli created history on Friday as he became the first batsman in the Indian Premier League (IPL) to score 6500 runs. Kohli, who is the only Indian player to play for a single franchise in the IPL since its inception, got to the mark in his 220th match in the T20 league.Kohli has been a stalwart in the IPL scoring 300-plus runs in every season since 2010 including three 500-plus seasons and an outrageous year in 2016 where he was on just a record-breaking spree when he amassed 973 runs. Kohli slammed four hundreds in a single season that year and led RCB to their first final in five years and remains their best finish in the league for 6 seasons now, since then.The talismanic batter is head and shoulders ahead of any other batter in the competition as PBKS' Shikhar Dhawan is on the second spot with 6186 runs and only these two have 6000-plus runs in the IPL.Kohli required 217 runs to reach the 6000-run mark before the season started and it looked like it will take 6-8 innings for him to reach the landmark, however, the luck and runs haven't been fair to him this season. Kohli has recorded more than 5 single-digit scores in the IPL this season thus far including three first-ball ducks.On Friday, Kohli looked like getting back into his usual touch when he wasn't getting out of his shape while hitting the boundaries and depended on timing rather than the power. However, his stay on the crease was cut short by Kagiso Rabada, who bowled into Kohli's body cramping him for room and the batsman tried to pull it, however, was caught in a tangle and could only get as far as the short fine-leg fielder. Kohli scored just 20 runs off 14 deliveries as RCB faltered to a 54-run defeat against Punjab and they need to win their last game against the Gujarat Titans to stay in the hunt for the playoffs.
