MELBOURNE, Australia – At the T20 Global Cup on Wednesday, Virat Kohli broke Mahela Jayawardene’s long-standing world record. At the Adelaide Oval, the former India captain defeated Bangladesh by hitting 64 off 44 balls.

In the T20 World Cup 2022’s Super 12 stage on Wednesday, Indian run machine Virat Kohli revived his love affair with Adelaide Oval by playing a superb performance that assisted Rohit Sharma and company in defeating Shakib Al Hasan-led Bangladesh.

At the Adelaide Oval, India’s Rohit-led team defeated Bangladesh by a score of 5 runs, with Kohli scoring the game’s top run. At one of the biggest platforms of them all, the World Cup, the 33-year-old also broke Mahela Jayawardene’s long-standing world record.

Jayawardene congratulated Kohli and sent a special message for the former captain of India, saying that the Asian giants’ star batter has been a warrior throughout his legendary career. In a video posted by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Wednesday, Jayawardene said, “Records are intended to be broken. Someone was always going to break my record, and it’s you, Virat. Brilliant guy, congrats. You’ve always been a warrior. Form is transitory, but quality is everlasting. Well done, buddy.”

Jayawardene’s spectacular T20 World Cup record was shattered by Kohli when he hit 64 off 44 balls against Bangladesh. In 2014, Jayawardene broke the record for most runs scored in a T20 World Cup. During the T20 World Cup, the legendary Sri Lankan player amassed 1016 runs. In the T20 World Cup of 2022, Kohli was able to surpass Jayawardene’s previous run total. On the thirteenth delivery of India’s innings against Bangladesh, Kohli passed Jayawardene with a strike rate of more than 80.

During the 23rd innings of the T20 World Cup, Kohli accomplished the remarkable accomplishment. The 33-year-old has played for Team India in 5 T20 World Cups. In this year’s T20 World Cup, Kohli has 12 half-centuries to his name. The former Indian captain also holds the record for most runs scored in the shortest format. After Kohli’s outstanding performance propelled India to a historic victory over Bangladesh, he was voted the game’s Player of the Match.

When Kohli scored 64 runs off 44 balls against Bangladesh, he broke Jayawardene’s incredible T20 World Cup record. The record for the most runs scored in a T20 World Cup was broken in 2014 by Jayawardene. The legendary Sri Lankan player scored 1016 runs during the T20 World Cup. Kohli was able to exceed Jayawardene’s previous run total at the T20 World Cup in 2022. In India’s innings against Bangladesh, Kohli passed Jayawardene on the twelfth delivery with a strike rate of more than 80.

“I was beaming from ear to ear the moment I found that the World Cup was being held in Australia. According to what I know, accurate cricket shots will be crucial here. Regardless of the format, I always hit through the line. For me, it is merely an extension. I enjoy competing in this field. I feel at ease because of this. After the game, Kohli remarked, “I am supposed to have fun and keep batting when I come to Adelaide.
