Star Indian opener Rohit Sharma on Monday added another feather to his illustrious cap as he went on to become the third batsman to accomplish 3000 runs in T20 international cricket during the ongoing match against Namibia in Dubai.
Rohit needed 20 runs before India’s last match of the ICC T20 World Cup to get to the milestone where he reached in the 3rd over of his team’s run chase.
The Hitman got there with his third boundary which was smacked straight down the ground against Ruben Trumpelmann.
Kohli tops the list with 3227 runs from 95 matches at an average of 52.04 with 29 fifties, followed by Guptill (3115) and Rohit.
Notably, the duo of Kohli and Rohit also lead the list of batsmen with the most 50+plus scores in T20Is with 29 and 28, respectively.
India are chasing 133 for a win in their ultimate Super 12 game after Namibia scored 132 for 8 in 20 overs.
Indian bowlers bamboozled the Namibians with Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin both grabbing 3 wickets each while Jasprit Bumrah struck twice to keep the opponents to a par score in Dubai.
India’s T20 World Cup campaign will end tonight after they crashed out of the race for the semifinals following New Zealand’s victory over Afghanistan on Sunday. Pakistan and the Kiwis are the two teams which advanced from Group 2.
India lost their initial matches by big margins against Pakistan (10 wickets) and New Zealand (8 wickets) which majorly contributed towards the Men in Blue crashing out in the group stage of a T20 World Cup for the first time since the 2012 edition.
