India vs South Africa: Rohit Sharma 8-run short from creating a world record
Mohali : Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have proved themselves as the greatest batsmen of T20Is, and the battle between the two players to prove their dominance will be a key when Team India hosts Proteas in Bengaluru.
The two Indian batting greats are in a neck-and-neck battle to be on top of the list of leading run-scorers’ in T20I cricket, with Kohli edging past Rohit to be on the top of the pile with his match winning 72* run innings in the 2nd T20I against Proteas earlier this week in Mohali.
Virat Kohli's reign come to an abrubt end when Rohit Sharma comes in to play during the Mohali match. He is just eight runs away from achieving the feat.
Kohli has 2,441 runs in T20I cricket, while Sharma has 2,434 runs.
Since, Rohit Sharma will come out to bat before Virat Kohli, he has a better chance to claim the top spot.
Meanwhile, Sharma’s fellow opening partner, Dhawan, who has scored 6,996 runs in T20 cricket needs just four runs to complete 7,000 runs in the shortest format.
