Virat Kohli 2nd batsman to hit 500 boundaries in Indian Premier League

Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the second batsman in Indian Premier League history after Delhi Capitals opener Shikhar Dhawan to score 500 fours.

Shikhar Dhawan is the only other batsman to have scored 500 fours in the IPL, and he leads the list with 575 fours. Suresh Raina (493), Gautam Gambhir (491) and David Warner (485) are the other three top boundary-hitters in IPL history.

Virat Kohli achieved the milestone during his 186th IPL match after he scored two fours in an IPL game against Kolkata Knight Riders. Kohli hit his 500th four towards deep mid-wicket on the back of a length delivery outside off from Lockie Ferguson.

Virat Kohli is the leading run-scorer in Indian Premier league history as he has amassed a total of 5638 runs in 183 IPL matches at an average of 38.33 and a strike rate of 131.50. Kohli has 5 centuries and 38 fifties to his name.
