India skipper Virat Kohli has become the first-ever batsman to score 3,000 runs in T-20 International. Kohli achieved the milestone during the second T20-International against England at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad last night.
The skipper was just 72 runs behind from touching the landmark figure and with his unbeaten knock of 73 runs, he crossed the 3,000-run mark. He now has 3,001 runs from 87 T20I matches. New Zealand’s Martin Guptill is second on the list of leading run-getters in T20I cricket, having scored 2,839 runs in 99 matches. India’s Rohit Sharma comes third in the list with 2,773 runs in 108 matches.
