Virat Kohli fails to breach 1000-run barrier but breaks Suresh Raina's IPL batting record

New Delhi: Virat Kohli endured a bittersweet Indian Premier League campaign this term.

While his personal form was truly spectacular, the right-hander could not take his team past the final hurdle in the Sunday final.

The 27-year-old finished with  973 runs in 16 matches at an average of 81.08, falling just 27 runs short of breaching the 1000-run barrier.

The Delhi batsman however did break a significant record with his 54-run knock against SunRisers Hyderabad.

Virat scored the 44 runs he needed to overtake Suresh Raina as IPL's all-time highest run-getter.

The left-hander has scored 4,098 runs in 147 matches, while Virat now has 4,110 runs in 139 matches. 

India's Test captain was miles of competition when it come to batting in the ninth edition of the tournament.

His four hundreds was definitely one of the major highlights of IPL 2016.
