Former India skipper Virat Kohli returned to form during the Asia Cup 2022 by scoring his long-awaited 71st century. He buried the ghosts of poor form that haunted him for two years. After finishing as the top-scorer for Team India in the Asia Cup 2022, Virat Kohli continued to score runs in the home T20I series against Australia and South Africa, respectively.
The run machine is now looking self-assured and has got the confidence heading into the T20 World Cup 2022. Furthermore, the event is happening in Australia, which is Virat’s one of the favourite countries to bat in. Whenever Virat Kohli bats, records follow him. He has another golden opportunity to break some records with his enterprising batting. Hence, in this post, we will take a look at the three records Virat Kohli can break in the mega event.
1. Highest run scorer in T20Is
Virat Kohli currently sits 2nd on the list of batters with the most international runs in the shortest format of the game. The right-handed batter has amassed 3712 runs in 109 T20Is. Since his debut in 2010, Virat has displayed unreal consistency to climb to second place on the list.
Virat Kohli is currently following current Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who sits at the top of the charts with 3737 runs in 142 T20I games. The difference between the two batters is only 25 runs and Virat has every chance to surpass his good friend during the mega event.
Meanwhile, New Zealand batter Martin Guptill is following Virat Kohli with 3497 runs in 121 T20I matches. However, the veteran right-handed batter is no longer guaranteed a spot in the Kiwi playing XI and he is more of a squad player. Hence, Virat Kohli has every chance of finishing the T20I World Cup 2022 as the leading run-scorer in the T20Is.
