“It was a complete game for us. Totally outplayed the opposition. Even with so much dew coming in, like last game we’ve defended the total again. Despite Rishabh and Iyer not getting a chance we put on 225. Testimony to our batting depth. Today Rohit and me were both positive in our intent.” Virat Kohli said on winning the series. Virat is the highest-scoring captain in T20s. Before him, it was New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, who has the highest number of 50s to his name.
