India captain Virat Kohli became the first batsman to make 3000 runs in men’s T20I cricket. He achieved the feat in the second T20I between India and England in Ahmedabad on Sunday. Kohli was already the leading scorer in the format in men’s cricket before the match. Only two other cricketers have scored more than 3000 runs in the format – both in women’s cricket. Suzie Bates (3301 runs) of New Zealand and Stafanie Taylor (3062) 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.

Set 165 runs to win the match, India chased down the target quite easily with more than two overs to spare.

Kohli now has 6001 runs from 85 T20Is since making his debut in the format in Zimbabwe in 2010.
