The start of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 is just a few days away. Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, have already arrived in Australia for this major tournament. They have already played a warm-up against Western Australia and will play a few more before the tournament begins.
The Men in Blue will play Pakistan in their opening T20 World Cup game on October 23 at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground. Virat Kohli will be looking to put on a great show against the arch-rivals who defeated them in the last T20 World Cup.
Kohli regained his lost form in the Asia Cup, and even then, he appeared to be in confidence. Kohli will also do his best to maintain his outstanding form during the World Cup. In this article, we will discuss the three big records that Virat Kohli can set at the T20 World Cup.
#1 Kohli can become the leading T20I run-getter
The talismanic batter Virat Kohli, who has 3,584 T20I runs from 96 innings, is currently trailing Rohit Sharma by just 36 runs. The Indian skipper has scored 3,620 T20I runs in 126 innings.
The Delhi-born batter will have a great opportunity to go past Rohit in the leading T20I run-getter chart in the upcoming T20 event.
#2 Can become the first batter to score 800+ T20I runs against a single opponent
Virat Kohli enjoys batting against Australia across all formats. Moreover, he is simply at his best on Australian shores. Given that he is in fine form, Kohli is expected to produce a lot of runs in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
With 718 runs at an amazing average of 59.8 in 18 T20 innings, the former Indian captain had a fantastic T20I record against Australia. He will have a fantastic opportunity to breach the 800-run mark against a single opponent in the shortest format of the game.
#3 Virat Kohli can become the player with the most fours in T20Is
Virat Kohli is now third on the list of most boundaries hit by a batter in T20Is, having smashed 319 of them. Ireland’s explosive opener Paul Stirling tops the chart with 344 fours in 113 T20I innings, while Indian partner Rohit Sharma has so far smashed 323 boundaries in his T20I career.
Kohli, who has been in superb form with the bat, can go past Stirling if the Men in Blue can play to their potential and reach the final. We all hope India to bring the World cup back to India this time and become the World T20 champions for the second time.
