(Virat Kohli all time leading run-scorer after record fourth ton)Here’s what the RCB captain said after leading his team to second position in the points table.’UNBELIEVABLE'”To be honest, I did not think I would get a 100 in 15 overs. I was not believing all that was happening. I was not willing to look at the scoreboard. I thought I would put real pressure on the opposition to get to 200.”(Virat Kohli can turn out to be better than Sachin Tendulkar: Dominic Cork)’PRESSURE DOING WONDERS'”We are getting our processes right. Playing under pressure is doing wonders for us. Hopefully, we can continue on this. My aim is to get runs for the team.”advertisementBATTLING INJURY”When you get into the zone, you feel like you can hit every ball. Today, it was a little tricky as I felt a bit of gap in my hand. First few balls, I was flinching a bit. Once I got the flow going, I just tried to keep a base and kept going.”NEXT GOALChances of a berth in semis brightening up with a hat-trick of victories, RCB will play their last league tie against Delhi Daredevils on May 22 at Raipur in Chattisgarh to stay on the course.”There are another 21 hours to switch off. Train as hard as you can to play for three-and-half hours. We want to go out and express ourselves.”I mean from the situation we were in, we had to get four in four. We have got three in three wins. We have got into a situation, where they are not looking at the points table and not looking at other teams. They are enjoying it and a lot of credit has to go to the backroom staff, too,” Kohli said.
