Rohit Sharma has surpassed Virat Kohli as India’s second most successful captain in T20Is after the victory over Hong Kong.
Sharma had taken up the full-time T20I captaincy after Kohli left the role following the ICC T20 World Cup in 2021. Rohit has been lauded for his brilliant captaincy so far.
Sharma achieved the feat by winning his 31st T20I as the leader of the Men in Blue in his 37th outing.
Virat led India to 30 wins in 50 matches as the India captain. MS Dhoni is in the number one position with 41 T20I victories from 72 matches.
India scored 192 runs against Hong Kong in 20 overs. Virat and Suryakumar Yadav added 98 runs. In response, Hong Kong fell short by 40 runs.
