Kohli hit a critical three-figure score in RCB’s must-win game against Gujarat Titans in Bengaluru, hitting the mark in 60 balls. The right-handed hitter began the innings cautiously because the rain had only just stopped when the players took the pitch. After assessing the circumstances, both Kohli and RCB skipper Faf du Plessis went after the GT bowling, tonking 62 runs in the powerplay.
Following the dismissals of du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, and Lomror, Kohli resorted to rotating the strike and formed a key partnership with Michael Bracewell. He anchored the innings and then provided a strong finish with the help of Anuj Rawat.
The Titans need 198 runs to win in 120 balls. If they win, MI go through! Follow the game here.
