The RCB vs SRH game will be remembered by the fans of both teams for a long time. Two great players Heinrich Klassen and Virat Kohli smashed centuries for their teams on the same day. The Sunrisers Hyderabad batting first put up a score of 186 runs. Virat Kohli and Faf Du Plessis’ 172 runs opening stand made the run chase look easier than it was.

The wait of the last 4 years finally came to an end when Virat Kohli reached a 3-figure score in the RCB vs SRH game. His innings included 12 fours and 4 sixes. It is a well-known fact that as compared to others in the team, Kohli is not much of a big hitter. However, the former RCB skipper surprised everyone when he hit a 103m six.
