Virat Kohli scored a brilliant 101 runs in 61 balls to take his side to a competitive score of 197 runs for the loss of 5 wickets. But, he was left teary eyed as Shubman Gill smashed 104 runs in 52 balls to ensure GT win in the game.

However, Kohli recently surpassed former West Indies opener Chris Gayle's record for the most centuries in the IPL. In the aftermath, he confidently proclaimed that he has rediscovered his peak form in T20 cricket. During the mid-innings break, Kohli shared his elation with former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, stating, "I felt amazing. Despite the notion that my T20 cricket is on the decline, I personally don't feel that way at all. I believe I'm once again playing my best T20 cricket. I'm thoroughly enjoying myself, adhering to my natural style of play. I aim to find the gaps, strike numerous boundaries, and capitalize on big shots if the situation permits."
Kohli emphasized the importance of adaptability and situational awareness, remarking, "As I've mentioned before, strike rates and similar statistics are crucial. It's essential to assess the circumstances and deliver when the need arises. This is something I take immense pride in and have consistently executed for quite some time now. I feel extremely confident about my current form and how I'm performing in the middle."
On Tuesday, GT will face off against Chennai Super Kings, led by MS Dhoni, in Qualifier 1 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
