Playing in his 314 T20 match, Kohli pulled his India team-mate Jasprit Bumrah for a six to get the milestone in the fourth over after RCB were sent in to bat. Virat managed to add another half-century to his cap, scoring  51 runs from 42 balls. His innings included 3 boundaries and 3 sixers. 

It was the Kiwi pacer Adam Milne who removed the RCB skipper in the last ball of the 16th over. Kohli danced down the track and top-edged a knuckle ball straight into the hands of the deep square-leg fielder.

Kohli, who is set to step down from RCB captaincy at the end of this season, had come into the match 13 short of 10,000 runs. The 32-year-old has played 298 innings before Sunday's match and has scored runs at an average of 41.61 with the help of five hundreds and 73 fifties. His highest individual score was 113. His career strike-rate has been an impressive 134 plus.
