He broke numerous records in his innings. He joined <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/suresh-raina/">Suresh Raina</a> in 4,500-run club, he also completed 26,000 runs in professional career, he recorded his fastest 50(26) in T20 career and also joined <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/gautam-gambhir/">Gautam Gambhir</a> in most number of half centuries(53) in T20. Kohli is now only 31 runs behind Raina to become the top run-scorer in IPL. With Raina warming the bench for the next two matches due to injury, Kohli might surpass him convincingly in a game or two. <p></p> <p></p>Earlier in the match, Sanju Samson guided RR to the highest total in this year's IPL with his impressive innings of 92*(45). RCB having a very strong batting line-up seemed like the only team who could chase it down. However, Brendon McCullum went cheaply for four in the first over itself. <p></p> <p></p>Quinton de Kock and Kohli kept the current rate high until de Kock was out in the eight over. Kohli and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/ab-de-villiers/">AB de Villiers </a> in pursuit of scoring quick runs ended up giving away their wickets. Mandeep Singh and Washington Sundar tried their best to catch up with the required run-rate in the end but failed to do so as RR won by 19 runs.
