Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli is 20 short of becoming the highest run-scorer against the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League. Kohli , with 504 runs from 13 matches, is second only to Chennai Super Kings' Shane Watson, who has 523 runs from 16 games. Kohli has four fifties against the David Warner-led side at an average 45.81.

The RCB will begin its IPL 2020 campaign against SRH. If RCB beats SRH, it will be Kohli’s 50th win as RCB captain. He will become the fourth captain to reach the milestone after Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni (101), former Kolkata Knight Riders captain Gautam Gambhir (71), and Mumbai Indians’ Rohit Sharma (60).
