Virat Kohli on the verge of breaking records in the 3rd T20 against New Zealand

Indian Captain Virat Kohli is breaking some serious records in his career. He has created new records and scripted his name in the history books. Virat Kohli and co arrive in Hamilton, already 2-0 up, and looking to seal the series. Seddon Park is a high scoring ground just like Eden Park. The visitors also got a 2-day break, which will help them to ease off the jetlags. The Seddon Park is somewhat a fortress for the hosts, as they have lost only 2 T20’s out of the 9 they played. Moreover, Tim Southee has termed the pitch as a typical white ball pitch. The Indian Captain is on the verge of breaking some serious records in the 3rd T20.

Virat Kohli on the verge of breaking more records

  1. Virat Kohli needs just 25 runs to surpass MS Dhoni in the list of highest run-getters in T20 as Captain. Kohli is in the 4th spot on the list. MS Dhoni is in the 3rd position (1,112). Kane Williamson is in the 2nd spot (1148), and South African skipper Faf Du Plessis tops that list (1,273). If Virat Kohli scores those 25 runs in the next match, he will become the Captain with the highest number of runs in T20’s.
  2. Additionally, he is also one half-century away from becoming the Captain with the most number of 50+ scored in T20’s. He is currently equal in the list with Kane Williamson and Faf Du Plessis. All of them have played eight such knocks.
  3. He can also become the 2nd captain to hit 50 sixes as Captain in T20’s. Earlier, the English Captain, Eoin Morgan was the first man to achieve this feat. Kohli is just seven maximum away from the feat.

The Indian Team comprehensively won both the T20’s in the series to take a 2-0 lead in the series. “Another good performance today, especially with the ball,” said Indian captain Virat Kohli after the 2nd T20. He could not hide his glee, exclaiming “Oh happy days” when he lost the toss and heard New Zealand choose to bat first. Bowling first was India’s strength, he said.

“We demanded the bowlers stood up and took control of what we wanted to do out there, and our line and lengths… was a very good feature,” concluded Kohli. They will be hoping to replicate the same performance in the 3rd T20 and win the series then and there in Hamilton.
