Virat Kohli became the first male cricketer to score 3,000 runs in international T20 cricket
Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has crossed another milestone, becoming the first male cricketer to score 3,000 or more runs in international T20 cricket.
Before Virat Kohli, two women cricketers have crossed this milestone, one from New Zealand and the other from the West Indies.
The Indian captain is right on top of the run-scoring chart in T20 internationals, with 3001 runs from 87 matches at an average of 50.86. He is followed by New Zealand opening batsman Martin Guptill, who has 2839 runs from 99 games at an average of 32.36. At No. 3 is Kohli’s deputy Rohit Sharma, with 2773 runs.
Kohli had a rather underwhelming Test series against England and he would want to change that in the limited-overs leg against the ‘Three Lions’. He is tied with Ricky Ponting for the record of most centuries by a captain in international cricket and would love to make the record his own by slamming a ton in the remaining three T20Is. It is a format where he still doesn’t have a century in international cricket.
