KEY HIGHLIGHTS
  • Virat Kohli will be in action for India against Bangladesh on Saturday (June 22).
  • Kohli has 4066 runs to his name in 121 T20Is played so far.
  • Kohli needs 80 runs to break Babar Azam's world record of most runs in T20Is.
Star batter Virat Kohli will be in action for India against Bangladesh on Saturday (June 22). During the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 match, which is scheduled to take place at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua, the right-handed batter will have a chance to create history and become the leading run scorer in T20Is. The former Indian captain, who has 4066 runs to his name in 121 T20Is played so far, needs 80 more runs to break Babar Azam’s world record of 4145 runs and take No. 1 position in the elite list.
Virat was the leading run scorer in T20Is before the start of the T20 World Cup 2024, but due to his poor form in the first four matches, he lost the No. 1 position to Babar. Apart from Kohli, Indian captain Rohit Sharma will also have a chance to break Babar’s record. Rohit has 4050 runs to his name in 155 T20Is for India, and he needs 96 runs to overtake Babar in the elite list.
Most runs in T20Is
  • Babar Azam (PAK) - 4145
  • Virat Kohli (IND) - 4066
  • Rohit Sharma (IND) - 4050
  • Paul Stirling (IRE) - 3601
  • Martin Guptill (NZ) - 3531
Unlike Kohli, Rohit has scored one fifty for India in the T20 World Cup 2024, but he was unable to convert good starts in the last three matches against Pakistan, the USA, and Afghanistan.
During the match against Bangladesh, Rohit will also have a chance to become the first batter in the world to hit 200 sixes in T20Is. The 37-year-old Rohit has 194 sixes to his name as of now, and he needs six more maximums to create a new world record.
India has won 45 out of 58 T20Is played under Rohit’s leadership, and if India manages to beat Bangladesh on Saturday, then Rohit will overtake Uganda’s Brian Masaba (45 wins in 60 T20Is) and become the second most successful captain in T20Is. The record for most wins in T20Is as captain is held by Pakistan’s Babar Azam, who has won 48 out of 85 T20Is played so far.
