Virat Kohli lead run scorer as England wrap T20 World Cup with win

Star Indian batter Virat Kohli became the first player to end two ICC T20 World Cup campaigns as the leading run-scorer in the tournament.

The star batter ended the 2022 edition of the tournament with 296 runs in six matches at an average of 98.66. He scored four half-centuries in the tournament, with his best being 82* in an instant-classic match against Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

Coming to the tournament, Virat is the leading run-scorer across all T20 World Cups. In 27 appearances, he has scored 1,141 runs at an average of 81.50. He has scored 14 half-centuries in the tournament, with his best individual score being 89*.

But his efforts have not been enough to clinch his side their second T20 World Cup title, which they had won back in 2007. This time, Men in Blue were knocked out in the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup which left millions of cricket fans shattered.

Meanwhile, England on November 13 became the first-ever team in the history of the sport to hold the 50-over Cricket World Cup and 20-over World Cup at the same time.

England accomplished this landmark during the final of the recently-concluded ICC T20 World Cup 2022 against Pakistan at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). The Three Lions chased down the total of 138 to clinch their second ICC T20 WC title, their first since 2010.
