Kane Williamson reached 238 before his marathon innings came to an after being caught by Shan Masood
Virat Kohli is living up to the true meaning of his name. He is 'virat' and too big in his game now, is one of the finest batsmen the world has witnessed and can lead a pack with sheer determination at a young age. Of course, and when he is not on the field, he still manages to hit headlines with lady love Anushka Sharma. © Twitter Virat Kohli has now managed to make a new world record yesterday while playing against England in Old Trafford, Manchester. He is now the fastest batsman to hit 2000 runs in T20Is and has broken the record of New Zealand's Brendon McCullum. He is also the first Indian player to make this record. The other three players who touched this pedestal include New Zealand's Martin Guptill (2271), McCullum (2140) and Pakistan's Shoaib Malik (2039). It took Kohli just 56 innings to make this record while it tool Brendon over 66 innings to make the same record. The next in line is Rohit Sharma who is now just 19 runs short of making the same record. Our men in blue continue making us super proud!
In club football, whenever the teams like Real Madrid lock horns with their nemesis such as Barcelona, it draws more viewership and captures great attention of the fans. While the fact that the two Spanish clubs are arch-rivals surely adds to the excitement, but the great hullabaloo surrounding the so-called 'El Clasico' is also because it pits two of the best footballers - Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - against each other. Similarly, in the Indian Premier League (IPL), when Chennai Super Kings (CSK) visited the M Chinnaswamy stadium to lock horns with Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), the excitement amongst Indian cricket fans was at an all-time high. And, why not, the thrilling featured two of the biggest Indian cricketers - Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni - in a highly-anticipated contest. BCCI But, unlike Ronaldo and Messi who would probably won't even exchange a few words before the game, the atmosphere in the Bengaluru stadium was pretty relaxed with both Kohli and Dhoni having a gala time ahead of their IPL clash. Candid conversations and bro-hugs being exchanged by the Indian cricket icons as they appeared to be catching up with one another. After spending some time in each other's company, Kohli made his way to RCB's warm-up session in a rather unusual manner. We don't know what exactly the duo talked about or what Dhoni told him, but Kohli appeared in a good mood and looked super-relaxed while dancing his way towards the RCB camp where his teammates were busy playing football as part of the warm-up session before the game. ðºðº @imVkohli #RCBvCSK #VIVOIPL pic.twitter.com/Z1eUu2qXga — IndianPremierLeague (@IPL) April 25, 2018 With little of knowledge about his mates - especially Brendon McCullum - keeping tabs on him, Kohli looked slick in his moves with erratic facial expressions. By the time he reached close to his teammates, McCullum was seen imitating Kohli before the everyone burst into laughter. A video of the entire episode was shared by IPL's official handle on Twitter. After watching the video, Indian cricket fans couldn't stop themselves from giving their opinion on Kohli's sassy walk.

One of the oldest and arguably amongst the most formidable sides in the Indian Premier League (IPL) history, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) have managed to strike a chord with the fans on the back of their star-studded squad and some scintillating cricket over the years. Boasting some of the biggest names in international cricket like Virat Kohli and AB de Villiers, the Bangalore franchise has made three final appearances in the history of India's cash-rich T20 tournament. And, while they ended up losing all the three finals and still continue to search their maiden title win, there is little doubt about their popularity in the league. © BCCL In the eleventh edition of the tournament, while skipper Kohli has been in ominous form, his teammates have struggled to match his heroics on the field. Thus, there was no surprise to see RCB, currently languishing at the seventh spot, losing three out of the four games they've played so far in the tournament. But, while their fans must've been disappointed with their dismal form in the early stages of the season, the likes of Kohli, Brendon McCullum, and Ashish Nehra surely brought a smile to their faces through their pun and wit during a funny quiz show. Guys, the madness has begun. Catch me and my #RCB pals in round one of #WrognIn60Seconds right here. #StayWrogn @StayWrogn pic.twitter.com/N3bxM58p4D — Virat Kohli (@imVkohli) April 18, 2018 Titled as “Wrogn in 60 Seconds,” the show - created with the same funky breakaway philosophy of the WROGN fashion brand - featured Kohli in the role of a moderator who quizzed Baz and Nehra with hilarious questions. In a bid to turn their campaign around, Kohli-led RCB will have to be at their prolific best when they lock horns with Delhi Daredevils in the bottom-of-the-table clash at M Chinnaswamy stadium on 21st April. Just like Bangalore, Delhi, despite the change in leadership, have struggled to get going, losing three out of the four matches they've played so far. With both the sides looking to bounce back and cut the deficit in points, the upcoming clash could very turn out to be a dogfight where the winner would surely carry some much-needed momentum going into the next matches.
