Despite scoring an outstanding century against Gujarat while playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL), the name Virat Kohli has been connected with an unsightly record. This is a surprise turn of events. This turning point in Kohli’s career in the league follows several years of the player’s previous success there.

RCB was beaten by Gujarat Titans in the most recent league match of the IPL 2023, and the final score was Gujarat Titans winning by six wickets. After their most recent loss, the RCB team’s chances of making the playoffs were eliminated.

Unfortunately for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) club, even though Virat Kohli scored an outstanding century in a recent encounter, it was not enough to win the game for them. During the most recent match, Virat was successful in scoring a century, but regrettably, he also established a record that is humiliating to his name.

In a recent turn of events, Virat Kohli became one of just two other players in the history of the Indian Premier League to lose two matches despite hitting a century in each of those matches. With seven hundreds to his record, Virat has surpassed everyone else to become the player with the most centuries scored in IPL history.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) squad, which is headed by Virat Kohli, was knocked out of the tournament on two separate times out of a total of seven hundreds. Prior to their most recent loss to the same club, Virat had scored a century against Gujarat Lions in 2016.

This came before their most recent loss to the same team. The RCB squad suffered yet another setback when they lost the match they were playing in. In addition to those two, Samson and Amla have been added to the list.

Both Sanju Samson and Hashim Amla have now joined the list of players who have hit two century in the Indian Premier League (IPL), despite their teams’ failure to win either of their matches despite those scores, which is an unexpected turn of events.

Samson scored a century on two consecutive times in 2019 and 2021, despite the fact that his club, the Rajasthan Royals, was defeated on each of those occasions. Hashim Amla’s performance during the 2017 Indian Premier League was significant due to the fact that he was able to hit two hundred despite the fact that his club, Punjab Kings, was unsuccessful in both of their matches.

Virat Kohli gave off the impression of being perfectly in sync from the very beginning of the innings. The guy was able to score an incredible 101 runs in a just 61 balls, demonstrating a remarkable level of batting expertise in the process. The innings was highlighted by 13 fours and one six, which left the opponents in a state of disarray.

Because to him, the RCB squad was able to accomplish a lot and get a good score. In the last encounter between these two teams, Virat Kohli had made a century against the Sunrisers Hyderabad. He has now reached his 8th century in Twenty20 cricket, which is a fantastic accomplishment.

Virat Kohli, a prominent figure in Indian cricket, has amassed an outstanding total of eight centuries during his career. Seven of these centuries were scored in the Indian Premier League (IPL), while the eighth was scored in an international Twenty20 match.
