Virat Kohli equals Tillakaratne Dilshan's record for most fours in T20Is

Team India skipper Virat Kohli ran riot in the 2nd and final T20I against Australia as his unbeaten 72 off 38 balls powered India to post a mammoth total of 190/4 after being put to bat. He also notched up his 20th T20I half-century as well. 

In his blitzkrieg, Kohli went on to equal the most fours in T20Is along with Tillakaratne Dilshan's 223. With the Sri Lankan retired, Kohli might go on to lead the list when India play a T20Is, which will be after the 2019 World Cup.

Team India vice-captain Rohit Sharma is third on the list with 207 fours in T20Is, with the second spot being currently held by Afghanistan batsman-wicketkeeper, Mohammed Shahzad. 

Kohli and veteran Mahendra Singh Dhoni delighted the Chinnaswamy crowd with a 100-run stand off 50 balls, propelling India to 190 for four in the second and final T20 against Australia on Wednesday.

Kohli led from the front in the must-win tie, hammering an unbeaten 72 off 38 balls in a knock that included half a dozen sixes, while Dhoni played the supporting role well with 40 off 23 balls.

It was a typical Dhoni innings that comprised three fours and as many sixes and came after a rather slow 29 off 37 balls in Vizag on Sunday night.

Opener KL Rahul was amongst runs again, scoring 47 off 26 in front of his home crowd.

Considering the pitch wore a greenish look, India brought in pace all-rounder Vijay Shankar in place of spinner Mayank Markande while fast bowler Umesh Yadav made way for Siddharth Kaul.

India made a third change by resting Rohit Sharma for Shikhar Dhawan to open the innings alongside Rahul. The southpaw was rested from the series opener.

With a series win at stake, Australia opted to field for the second game in row.
