ICC T20 World Cup 2022: Virat Kohli on the verge of breaking an all-time T20 World Cup record

A few months ago, there were discussions if Virat Kohli justifying his place in the T20 XI. Cut to a few weeks later, Virat Kohli is currently one of the most important batters for India in the T20 World Cup. Everything is aligning well for Virat and he is also on his way to breaking a few records in the ongoing competition. On that note, here, we take a look as Virat Kohli is on the verge of breaking an all-time T20 World Cup record.

Virat Kohli on the brink of a T20 World Cup record

Former Sri Lanka batter Mahela Jayawardene is currently the highest run-getter ever in the T20 World Cup. The right-handed batsman scored 1016 runs at the ICC event. He also won the trophy once in 2014. Before the tournament started, everyone expected Virat Kohli or Rohit Sharma to break this record. However, that time has come very soon.

After his stunning knocks over Pakistan and the Netherlands, Virat Kohli is now just 28 runs away from breaking the record set by Mahela. He currently stands at 989 and it is just a matter of time before Virat Kohli becomes No.1 on this list. Indian captain Rohit Sharma is currently with 904 runs and for him also, breaking the record might not be a problem in the 2022 T20 WC.

The former Indian skipper is in stunning touch

Virat Kohli’s rough patch made most feel that he might not be a good addition to the Indian Team for the World Cup. However, the former Indian skipper stepped up against Pakistan, when most of the other batters failed. It was a breathtaking knock and took India home.

Against the Netherlands, too, Virat was in good form. With this touch, India will be confident about its chances in the event. Virat Kohli will also be expected to come well in some crucial encounters in the coming weeks.
