Every time Indian batsman Virat Kohli steps onto the pitch, a record is added to his name. Something similar was seen in the 35th match played in the T20 World Cup 2022. During the batting against Bangladesh in this match, Virat set the record for most points in the World Cup T20 in short format. He left behind former Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene.
Mahela Jayawardene holds the record for most runs in the 2014 World Cup. He totaled 1016 runs in 31 World Cup matches played between 2007 and 2014 at an average of 39.07. During this time, a century and six half centuries have been seen with his bat.
Meanwhile, Virat Kohli, who played his first T20 World Cup in 2012, now has 1,065 runs in 23 rounds of 25 matches. Virat scored those runs at an average of 88.75 and his strike rate was 132.46.
Kohli’s bat speaks fiercely at the 2022 T20 World Cup
For Virat Kohli, this year can be divided into two parts. In the first six months, questions were raised about his form and there were even questions about whether he deserved a World Cup spot. Kohli, however, took a break before the Asian Cup held at the end of August and returned to the tournament with some fine shots and scored his first T20I century. At the same time, in the current World Cup too, he won the match for India by scoring a tremendous half century against Pakistan. After that he also played half a century against the Netherlands. Virat Kohli also played a strong run against Bangladesh and marked his half century of the current T20 World Cup. He is the best race scorer of the current edition.
