Records Virat Kohli can break during the RCB vs CSK match in IPL 2024

For the first time since January 2024, star batsman Virat Kohli of India will take the field during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season-opening between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). There's a chance that history may be revised upon his return, catapulting him to the top of an uncharted territory.

The last time Kohli was spotted playing was during India vs. Afghanistan's third Twenty20 International in Bengaluru. He then missed the five-match Test series against England that ended recently.

If Kohli makes six runs in Friday's encounter against Chennai, he will become the first Indian player to reach 12,000 runs in a Twenty20 competition. With 376 T20 matches under his belt, the former Indian captain has amassed 11,994 runs thus far.

The 35-year-old will also have the opportunity to get the third-highest score overall and become the first Indian hitter to hit 100 50+ in T20s. On the list, he is below Chris Gayle (110) and David Warner (109). In addition, Kohli will have the opportunity to surpass the Chennai-based franchise and become the second batter in IPL history to reach 1000 runs. With 31 matches under his belt and 985 runs scored, Kohli needs to score just 15 runs to pull off the incredible accomplishment.

Additionally, the 35-year-old leads all IPL run scorers in history. The star batsman for India has amassed 7263 runs at an average of 37.24 and a strike rate of 130.02 in 237 games and 229 innings. His highest rating is 113. Throughout his IPL career, he has amassed 50 fifties and seven hundreds, the most for a hitter.

The 35-year-old hitter was fourth in runs scored during the previous season with a 53.25 average and a 139.82 strike rate. His highest rating was 101*. Despite scoring two hundred and six fifties, the 35-year-old was unable to lead his team to the postseason.

The IPL's 17th season will get underway on Friday when Bengaluru and Chennai, the reigning champions, square off in a Southern derby at MA Chidambaram Stadium.
