New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has once again climbed to the top spot in the list of batsmen with the most runs in T20Is. The right-handed batsman was 5 runs short of breaching Rohit Sharma’s tally, who was at the top with 3487 runs. Guptill in the last game against west indies scored 15 runs and surpassed the Indian skipper Rohit Sharma by 10 runs.
Martin Guptill is now at the top with 3497 runs in 121 T-20Is. He has two centuries in the format. He is followed by Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who has 3487 runs in 132 T20Is. His tally includes 4 centuries, most for any batsman in T20Is. Virat Kohli, who once held the top spot, has 3308 runs and acquires the third spot in the list. He is yet to score a century in T20Is.
Since the Asia Cup is near, then Rohit Sharma has time to go ahead of Guptill. For the past few months, up and down in the list of highest run scorers between Rohit and Guptill is going on continuously.
Kohli, who acquires the third spot, will make his T20I comeback in the Asia Cup, which is slated to start in the last week of August.
