Virat Kohli becomes first batsman to reach 3,000 runs in men’s T20I Cricket

March 15, 2021

India captain Virat Kohli became the first batsman to make 3,000 runs in men’s Twenty20 International (T20I) cricket.

He achieved the feat in the second T20I between India and England in Ahmedabad yesterday. Kohli was already the leading scorer in the format in men’s cricket before the match.

Only two other cricketers have scored more than 3,000 runs in the format — both in women’s cricket. Suzie Bates (3,301 runs) of New Zealand and Stafanie Taylor (3,062) of the West Indies are the others to achieve this feat.

Kohli’s innings of 73 runs off just 49 balls with 5 fours and 3 sixes helped India level the five-match series 1-1 as they won the second T20I by seven wickets.

Kohli now has 6001 runs from 87 T20Is since making his debut in the format in Zimbabwe in 2010.
