M Chinnaswamy Stadium mustn’t have ever witnessed a carnage like the one Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers put up against the Gujarat Lions! This match might go down as one of the most amazing onslaughts with the bat and was an absolute treat to watch, unless you were supporting the Gujarat Lions!
A number of records were broken yesterday and we are sure it will take a while for anyone to break them again!
Here are 5 Crazy Records Broken In The Royal Challengers vs Gujarat Lions Match:
1. 229-run partnership off 96 balls between Kohli and AB is the highest ever partnership put on by batsmen in IPL! They broke their own record of 215 runs which they scored against Mumbai Indians in 2015.
2. 144 run victory margin is the highest ever margin for any IPL match!
3. This is the first time in IPL history that 2 players have scored a century from the same side. Kohli scored 109 from 55 balls, while de villiers scored 129* from 52 balls.
4. Kohli scored his 3rd century of this season – the highest for any player across all IPL seasons.
5. Kohli and de Villiers have 4 century partnerships between them, most for a single pairing in a single IPL season.
Seems like RCB are the favourites to take home the title this season! What do you think?
