Mumbai: Indian skipper Virat Kohli and his deputy Rohit Sharma are tied at the top in the 2019 T20I batting charts with 2,633 runs each after India’s 67-run win over West Indies in the series-deciding third T20I in Mumbai.

West Indies decision to bowl first backfired as Rohit (71 off 34 balls; 6×4; 5×6) and Kohli (70 off 29 balls; 4×4; 7×6) alongwith KL Rahul (91 off 56 balls; 9×4, 4×6) plundered the Windies attack to help India post 240/3 in their last T20I of the year.

Kohli scored 2,633 in 75 innings at an average of over 50 while Rohit has taken 104 innings at an average of 32.10.

Indian bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav all picked up two wickets each.
