Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batters in the history of T20Is.

The Men in Blue forced their way to the last four of the ongoing Asia Cup 2022 after a Virat Kohli & Suryakumar Yadav show helped India defeat Hong Kong by 40 runs.

The Indian management would be unhappy with the bowling unit despite the victory. Also, KL Rahul’s strike rate was a matter of concern. Nevertheless, Kohli and Yadav were on point for the team.

Virat, with his unbeaten 59 runs, toppled multiple records in the match. Before the game, he had 1440 unbeaten T20I runs, the most by any cricketer in the world.

After his half-century, Virat extended his lead and has 1499 runs without getting out. The 33-year-old former Indian skipper is 566 runs ahead of second-placed South Africa’s David Miller, who has 933 runs.

Here is the list of the top five cricketers with the most T20I runs scored in unbeaten innings.

1499- Virat Kohli

933- David Miller

917- JP Duminy

912- Shoaib Malik

812- Jos Buttler

Further, it is worth noting that the inning against Hong Kong was Virat’s 75th unbeaten knock, and he surpassed master blaster Sachin Tendulkar’s record of 74 unbeaten innings.
