Despite the fact that Kohli has never won the IPL, his 132 matches as captain are second only to MS Dhoni’s IPL record of 196. His best season as a batter came in 2016, when he not only won the orange cap for scoring the most runs but also helped his team reach the final, where they were defeated by Sunrisers Hyderabad.
