Virat Kohli needs 266 more runs to surpass his record of 973 runs in a season, and achieving this could lead RCB to their maiden IPL title.

RCB’s chances of winning the IPL 2024 depend heavily on Virat Kohli’s performance in the remaining matches.

The Royal Challengers Bangalore have astonished fans by making an impressive comeback in the Indian Premier League 2024, winning six consecutive games to qualify for the playoffs. After winning only one of their first seven matches, many had written them off, but Virat Kohli’s consistent performance has been a driving force throughout the season.

Despite early setbacks, Kohli ensured he kept scoring big. The prolific Indian batter has been in exceptional form, retaining the coveted Orange Cap almost throughout the season. His superb touch from the beginning peaked at the right time, helping RCB secure a spot in the playoffs.

With 708 runs in 14 matches, including five fifties and a century, Kohli is now just 266 runs away from breaking his own record of 973 runs in a single season, set in 2016. That year, he scored four centuries and seven fifties, leading RCB to the final, where they lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad. Additionally, Kohli is only 29 runs away from reaching 8000 IPL runs.

As Virat Kohli eyes new records, he is undoubtedly aiming for RCB’s first-ever title. Having navigated a challenging path to the playoffs, Bengaluru’s chances hinge on Kohli’s ability to replicate his stellar performances.

How Virat Kohli’s Fiery Knocks Could Propel RCB to Their First-Ever Title

In RCB’s last six games, Kohli has scored 329 runs, surpassing 40 runs in five of them, with a highest score of 92. Throughout the season, his high-scoring innings have led RCB to victory in six out of nine matches where he excelled. The formula for RCB’s success is clear: Kohli must continue his run-scoring spree.

Kohli will need to approach each game as if it were his last, starting with the Eliminator against Rajasthan Royals, the team against whom he scored his only century of the season, though it came in a losing cause. This time, the tables could turn for the RCB opener.

While RCB comes into the playoffs with five consecutive wins, RR have struggled, barely making it through with four straight losses. The revitalized RCB will be counting on Kohli to lead them through the crucial do-or-die matches and finally secure their name on the coveted trophy.
