On the other hand, Rohit Sharma’s total in the T20I format is 3487 from 132 matches. Virat Kohli, who has been going through a lean patch in his career, is currently sitting in the third position in the list, with 3308 runs in 99 T20Is.

However, it is just a matter of time before Rohit Sharma will surpass Guptill again as the New Zealander isn’t going to play any T20 International match as of now, while Rohit Sharma will play T20 International against Pakistan on August 28 in the Asia Cup 2022 and he will leave Guptill behind by scoring 11 runs. If Rohit scores 13 runs then he will be the first batsman to score 3500 T20I runs.
