India vs West Indies: Virat Kohli needs six runs to achieve massive feat in T20s
Mumbai : Indian skipper Virat Kohli is just six runs away from adding another massive feat to his name. India will be facing West Indies on Wednesday and if Virat Kohli manages to score more than six runs then he will surpass the 1000-run mark in T20s at home; with this he will become the first Indian batsman to do so. In the international standard only New Zealand’s Martin Guptill (1430) and Colin Munro (1000) have achieved the feat.
In the second T20I encounter on Sunday, the right-handed batsman surpassed Rohit Sharma to reclaim the top spot in the T20I highest run-scorers list. While Kohli has scored 2,563 runs in the shortest format, Sharma has registered 2,562 runs in the format.
