NEW DELHI: Virat Kohli smashed an unprecedented fourth century of the Indian Premier League (IPL) season — despite nursing a finger injury — to become the tournament’s highest ever run-scorer.
Kohli, who batted with nine stitches after splitting the webbing in his left hand in the previous game, bludgeoned 113 runs off 50 balls to reach 4,002 runs in the Twenty20 competition.
Kohli surpassed Indian batsman Suresh Raina’s record of 3,985 runs as he led the Royal Challengers Bangalore to another crushing win against Kings XI Punjab on Wednesday.
The India captain put together a 147-run opening partnership with powerful Jamaican Chris Gayle (73).
