It was a happy homecoming for the former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli as Delhi’s greatest batter in the modern era returned to the iconic Arun Jaitley Stadium during the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Saturday. The Indian stalwart played a gritty knock for Faf du Plessis’ Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in match No.50 of the IPL 2023 against Delhi Capitals (DC) at his home ground.

The 34-year-old scored 55 off 46 balls while skipper Du Plessis chipped in with quick-fire 45 off 32 balls as the RCB openers enjoyed a 82-run opening stand against the hosts.

Though Kohli and Mahipal Lomror’s half-centuries helped RCB to reach a score of 181-4 in 20 overs, RCB failed to register a much-needed win over DC at the IPL 2023. Philip Salt’s blazing knock of 87 off 45 balls powered David Warner’s DC to a seven-wicket win over RCB at Delhi. After DC’s win over RCB, the IPL shared a video of Kohli enjoying his homecoming at the Arun Jaitley Stadium.

Virat Kohli also scripted history at his home ground in the IPL 2023. He became the first player to smash 7,000 runs in the world’s richest T20 league.

After the game he said, “It is just another milestone on the journey. Itโ€™s a nice number, I just saw it on the screen. If it helps the team, I am happy to contribute. Itโ€™s a special moment for me, my family is here, my coach is here, Anushka is here. My whole journey started here. I was watched by the selectors at this ground and selected. I feel nothing but gratitude, god has blessed me with such amazing things, I can only bow down.”
