Rohit overtook Guptill-Virat, became the highest run-scorer in T20

Rohit Sharma, India’s captain, has broken the record for most runs scored in T20 Internationals. In this matter, he has left New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and India’s Virat Kohli behind. He set this record against Sri Lanka in the first T20 match at Lucknow’s Ekana Stadium.

Guptill has the most runs with 3299, while Kohli has 3296 in 97 matches. To get ahead of both, Rohit needed a total of 37 runs. He is currently batting after scoring 41 runs in the first T20 against Sri Lanka, as of this writing.

Kohli will be absent from the Sri Lankan series. In this order, Ireland’s Paul Stirling is fourth, and Australia’s Aaron Finch is fifth. In 100 games, Sterling has scored 2758 runs, while Finch has 2686 runs in 88 games. In the first T20 against Sri Lanka, Rohit was dismissed for 44 runs.

Kohli and Guptill are overtaken by Rohit.

It was not possible to match Pakistan’s Babar.

Rohit came up short of matching Pakistan captain Babar Azam’s record. He would have equaled the record for the fastest captain to complete 1000 runs in T20 Internationals if he had scored 63 runs. In 26 innings, Babar had scored 1000 runs. At the same time, Rohit had scored 937 runs in 25 innings prior to this match.

After 26 innings, Rohit has 981 runs. Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan, broke Virat Kohli’s record for fastest 1000 runs as a captain. Kohli completed the task in just 30 innings. In this regard, Rohit still has a chance to break Kohli’s record.

Rohit Sharma has the potential to break yet another Kohli record.

Kohli matched Rohit’s record in the West Indies series. In international T20 cricket, he had equaled Rohit in terms of scoring 50 or more runs. This is something Kohli and Rohit have done at least 30 times. Hitman has 26 fifties and four centuries to his credit. Kohli, on the other hand, has 30 half-centuries to his name. In this situation, Rohit had a chance to surpass Kohli in this regard, but he was unable to do so in this match.
