Virat Kohli breaks Alex Hales’ world record after eight years

Virat Kohli has registered another world record in T20Is. He scored an unbeaten 122 off 61 balls with the help of 12 fours and 6 sixes against Afghanistan in the last Super 4 stage game of the Asia Cup 2022.

He amassed the highest men’s T20I score after a duck in previous innings. The former India captain was dismissed for a four-ball duck in the previous game with Sri Lanka at the Dubai International Stadium.

Kohli broke Alex Hales’ record of 116 runs, which had set against Australia in 2014.
