India vs South Africa: 2nd T20I: Virat Kohli goes past Rohit to become highest run-getter in T20Is

Virat Kohli overtakes Rohit Sharma

Mohali, September 18: Virat Kohli made an unbeaten 72 to take India home by seven wickets in the second T20I as the home side took an unassailable 1-0 lead in the series. Along with guiding India to win, Kohli also became the highest run-getter in T20I cricket overcoming teammate Rohit Sharma. Though, they will vie for the honour for one more T20I match in Bengaluru on September 22.

While Rohit Sharma has four hundreds in T20Is, Kohli is yet to make a hundred in the format. Kohli now has 22 fifties without a hundred in T20Is, a record that he would like to obliterate at the earliest. Australian opener David Warner is a distant second with 13 hundreds and Zimbabwe's Paul Stirling has 12. With 11 fifties, JP Duminy of South Africa is third. AB de Villers, Mohammad Hafeez, Hamilton Masakadza, Eoin Morgan, Kusal Perera, Babar Azam and Marlon Samuels have 10 fifties each.

"Adapting to different formats is nothing but a mindset to make your team win. If you want to win a game for your team, you will find a way. That's the most important thing. I never think for myself, it's always about what the team needs. Test cricket, one-day cricket ... the will should be to win the game for your country," said Kohli.
