Virat Kohli broke Mahela Jayawardene’s record of 1016 races, set in 2014, to become the top scorer in the history of the T20 World Cup. The former Indian skipper broke the record during India’s fourth group 2 match against Bangladesh in Adelaide. Mahela had scored 1016 points in 31 innings, while Kohli scored 1017 points in his 23rd inning. He entered the 1000 race club into the tournament with his 12 races against South Africa. However, India lost that game. The ongoing World Cup has so far seen Kohli deliver powerful performances in India’s victories, with the first against Pakistan. After an 82-point winning shot against Pakistan, he also scored 62 against the Netherlands, which helped India establish a winning total. Kohli finished the day without 64 wins as India amassed a total of 184 runs in 20 overs against Bangladesh.
