3. Highest average in T20Is by a visiting batter in Australia
It is no secret that Virat Kohli loves batting in Australia across formats and T20Is are no different. While most batters find it difficult to bat in Aussie conditions that offer extra pace and bounce to the bowlers. Virat Kohli thrives on it and dominates the bowlers.
Australia’s big grounds suit Virat’s batting style as he can easily find singles and doubles and hitting boundaries is also easy courtesy of the fast outfields in the country. In the T20I format, Kohli has amassed 451 runs in 11 T20I games so far in Australia at a mind-blowing average of 64.42.
Iftikhar Ahmed, Asela Gunaratne, and JP Duminy have a better average than Virat Kohli in T20Is in Australia. Asela and JP are not part of the tournament, while Iftikhar Ahmed will play in Pakistan’s middle order. If Virat Kohli can be at his best, it won’t be a surprise to see him become the visiting batter with the highest T20I average in Australia by the end of the T20 World Cup 2022.
