  3. In 2016 on 18th May Royal Challengers Bengaluru was playing against Punjab Kings. Virat played one of the best innings of his IPL career on that day where he celebrated by pointing his finger showing how much he was dedicated to playing for his team even after 8 stitches. He made 113 off 50 balls and made his team win.
  4. Our last incident of 18th May is the most recent one when last year Virat Kohli made a fantastic hundred against Sunrisers Hyderabad in a must-win match. Kohli made 100 off 63 balls against SRH and kept hopes alive for his team.
