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.
Set a stiff target of 241 runs, West Indies only managed to reach 173/8. WI skipper Kieron Pollard top scored for them with a 39-ball 68.
Indian bowlers Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Deepak Chahar, Mohammed Shami and Kuldeep Yadav all picked up two wickets each.
