Healthy competition exists in the leadership group of Indian cricket. The see-saw game for the maximum run-scorer in the shortest format of the game is on between Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.
Kohli(2544) is just three runs away from surpassing Rohit(2547) as the highest T20I run-getter. Whatever happens, the battle for the top two leading scorers will keep existing in series going forward.
Kohli hit a fluent 94* in the chase of 208 against West Indies yesterday. Rohit couldn’t capitalize on the start provided as he was dismissed for just 8 runs. It will be interesting to see how things will turn out in the middle tomorrow. Whatever, it has now become a trend of one among the two breakings some records.
Though Kohli averages better, the way they have turned out to be the pillars has really been fascinating for all the fans. Similar, Rohit has four centuries to his name while Kohli doesn’t have one still. Keeping aside the numbers, if we measure the impact in T20I cricket by the duo, it can be rated the highest.
In short, the Indian cricket keeps better and better, courtesy the records by these two.
Rohit’s love for sixes
On the other hand, Rohit is just one hit away from becoming the first Indian to hit 400 sixes.
We will have to wait and see who comes out all guns blazing in the second T20I at Thiruvananthapuram. Will India clinch the series or the Carribiens will take it for a decider?
