On 25 September, former India captain Virat Kohli became only the second batter in the world to amass 16,000 runs in white-ball international cricket after the legendary Sachin Tendulkar. Kohli achieved the milestone during the third T20I match against Australia in Hyderabad.
He was in full flow during the match, alternating between the roles of an attacker and an anchor as needed. The right-handed batter smashed 63 runs in 48 balls including three fours and four sixes. After the match, Kohli was invited to the post-match presentation ceremony to take the award of the ‘Energetic Player of the Series.’
