Virat Kohli, during his unbeaten 75-run knock against KKR on Monday, surpassed Chris Gayle’s 733-run mark to create a new record of most runs in a single season.
Gayle scored 733 runs for RCB in 15 matches during the 2012 edition and Kohli has moved to 752 in the ongoing edition off only 12 games.
This is not the first record the RCB skipper has smashed this season. With three tons, he entered record books by becoming the only player in tournament’s history to hit three tons in a single season.
