The Indian skipper Virat Kohli has been going in a very great form and he didn’t disappoint us yesterday. Kohli played a 72* run knock in 52 balls and maintained a 68 run partnership with Shikhar Dhawan.
Kohli had a pretty successful T-20 series while in West Indies as well. Now he has surpassed hitman Rohit Sharma’s record of hitting 21 half-centuries in T-20 cricket. Kohli has 22 half-centuries in his kitty now which is the highest number of half-centuries hit in international T-20 cricket.
Kohli also took a game-changing catch of Quinton de Kock when de Kock was playing in a very good form and South Africa looked towards a big total.
The most number of runs in T-20 cricket as now of now:
2440 Virat Kohli *
2434 Rohit Sharma
2283 Martin Guptill
2263 Shoaib Malik
2140 Brendon McCullum
Kohli is number one T-20 as well as one-day batsman in the world currently and is on the second spot in Test cricket with Steve Smith leading that chart.
King Kohli is definitely looking towards a win in the home series as the T-20 world cup of year 2020 is approaching fast. The team is also going through some internal issues which needs captain’s attention and of course, the issue of the batsman number four.
