“Eoin Morgan said – “Virat Kohli is the Greatest Batsman of Our Generation,” wrote anothe X user.

Several social media users highlighted that Virat Kohli scored the slowest century of IPL history.

In RCB’s match against Rajasthan Royals, Kohli showed superb improvisation from his wrist-rolled pulls, and powerful swat flicks to steer through the third man as he remained unbeaten on 113 off 72 balls and has now scored 38 per cent of RCB’s total runs so far.

With the assistance from his skipper Faf Du Plessis, Kohli smashed 12 fours and four sixes. He scored a half-century in 39 balls, after which he stepped up his game and took just 28 balls for his next fifty as he reached the milestone with a single off Nandre Burger in the penultimate over. 

On the other hand, Glenn Maxwell (1) and debutant left-hander Saurav Chauhan (9), who failed to replicate his Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 form, fell cheaply.

The RCB witnessed their best-ever start in this IPL when Kohli and Du Plessis saw through the power play for the first time this season in a 125-run opening partnership.
