On Tuesday, a match will be played between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians. In this match, Bangalore captain Virat Kohli has a chance to make his name a meaningful one and make a ‘Virat’ record. Virat Kohli can be the first player who makes the most runs in IPL history, in this match. Suresh Raina is the player who scored the most runs in IPL history. Raina’s record in the IPL is in 163 matches, made 4558 runs at an average of 33.76. Scoring these runs, Raina has scored 1 century and 31 half-centuries. Now it’s time for Virat Kohli, who needs 32 runs to leave behind Raina.

If Kohli would able to score 32 runs against Mumbai Indians, then he will be the highest scorer in IPL. To match Raina’s record, Virat will have to score 31 runs against Mumbai Indians. Raina has scored 4558 runs in 163 matches, while Kohli has scored 4527 runs in 152 matches with 4 centuries and 31 half-centuries. Kohli has an average of 37.41 during this period. If Virat Kohli breaks Suresh Raina’s record today, he will become the fastest player to score highest runs in IPL. Kohli has played 1o games lesser than the CSK star batsman, Kohli is going to play his 153rd IPL match.

For Virat Kohli, it is an excellent opportunity to break Raina’s record in this match, because Suresh Raina is recently unable to play against the Rajasthan Royals on April 20 due to his injury. Kohli has the opportunity to leave Raina behind and making the highest run scorer in the IPL. While talking about the players who scored the most runs in IPL, the name of Mumbai’s captain Rohit Sharma comes in third place. Suresh Raina in the first place, Kohli on second and Rohit Kabadi at number three. Rohit has scored 4251 runs in 162 matches, and he is far behind Kohli and Raina.
