Ind vs Eng T20 – Virat Kohli 1st batsman to score 3000 Runs
With India playing the five-match series to test the possible combination for the ICC T20I World Cup in October, Kohli is expected to reach the milestone in the first two games. The stylish batsman has already scored 9,500 runs in the T20s and he could become a member of the 10,000-run club in the IPL 2021 that will begin on April 9.
IND vs ENG: India’s vice-captain in the limited-overs, Rohit Sharma, could also reach the 3,000-run milestone in the series if he scores 227 runs in the series. With 2,773 runs in 100 innings, he is India’s second-leading run-scorer in T20Is. New Zealand’s Martin Guptill is the world’s second-leading run-scorer in T20Is behind Kohli with 2,839 runs.
