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).

We still have not been able to fabricate consistent batsmen in the mean while Ahmed Shehzad ,Hafeez and Nasir Jamshed came to the spotlight churning an expectation for us but then their efforts also failed to make an impression as they sparkled in one match and drabbed in the other. This is the only rationale for the downfall of Pakistani cricket and the loss which the team suffered in the recent tournaments.

Pakistan finally got such an attacking opener Sharjeel Khan few years back. Sharjeel made T20 debut against Afghanistan in 2013 and performed well in first 3 games as he also scored a fifty against Sri Lanka. Unfortunately he was dropped by selectors from T20 team on the basis of his performances in ODI Cricket, although he is T20 specialist.
