The battle of T20I dominance between India captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma will continue when the Men in Blue take on South Africa in the 3rd T20I in Bengaluru on Sunday. The two Indian batting greats are in a neck-and-neck battle to be on top of the list of leading run-scorers’ in T20I cricket, with Kohli edging past Rohit to be on the top of the pile with his match winning 72* run innings in the 2nd T20I against Proteas earlier this week in Mohali.
But Kohli’s reign could come to an abrupt end on Sunday, with Sharma regaining the top spot when he comes out to bat. The right-handed batsman is just eight runs away from Kohli’s feat, and could take the top spot. Kohli has 2,441 runs in T20I cricket, while Sharma has 2,434 runs.
