Adelaide Oval: Amid disastrous performance by Team India in the second semi-final against England at Adelaide in the T20 World Cup, which stopped their entry in the final, Virat Kholi’s performance was the only saving grace. Kohli on Thursday became the first batter to complete 1, 100 runs in T20 World Cups.

His strike rate was 125.00. On the second position in the tally is Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardene who scored 1016. Chris Gayle has got the third spot by scoring 965 runs.

This was Kohli’s fourth half-century in the ongoing tournament where he is currently the leading run getter. He has scored 296 runs in six innings at an average of 98.66, which includes his knock of 82 against Pakistan at Melbourne. He has also become the first player in history to cross 4,000 runs in T20 international cricket.
