Also on Thursday, Kohli made his 200th appearance for the franchise in the IPL 2020 match against Kings XI Punjab, becoming the first cricketer to play 200 matches for the same team in T20 cricket.

Kohli said it was 'unbelievable' and called it an honour.

"RCB means a lot, not many understand that emotion," he said after winning the toss in Sharjah. "200 games for them is unbelievable, I wouldn't have believed it in 2008. It is an honour, they've kept me and I have stayed on."
