Virat Kohli on Wednesday became the highest run-scorer in the history of T20 World Cups, surpassing Sri Lankan legend Mahela Jayawardene. The former Indian skipper shattered one of the biggest milestones in the history of World Cups. 

Jayawardene was at the top of the list with 1016 runs ahead of India’s match versus Bangladesh, but Virat surpassed him on Wednesday, shattering yet another record, just like he has been doing since he first donned the Indian jersey.  

Fans on Twitter meanwhile couldn’t control their excitement, as the BCCI, all the IPL franchises, and many others united their wishes for Kohli.
