Rohit Sharma, India's captain, has scored 48 and 55 runs in the two T20I matches he has played thus far in the three-match T20I series against New Zealand. With the two brilliant performances, he now has a chance to set a new record for India in T20Is, surpassing former captain Virat Kohli.

Rohit has amassed 103 runs in two matches, bringing his total to 3141 runs in 118 T20I appearances. He is now just 87 runs away from surpassing Kohli's 3227 runs to become India's all-time greatest run scorer in T20Is.

Rohit has amassed 103 runs in two matches, bringing his total to 3141 runs in 118 T20I appearances. He is now just 87 runs away from surpassing Kohli's 3227 runs to become India's all-time greatest run scorer in T20Is. On Friday, Rohit's 55-ball innings helped him tie Kohli for the most fifty-plus scores in T20I cricket.

With a 17-ball 31, New Zealand opener Martin Guptill passed Kohli to become the highest run-getter in the shorter format. In 107 innings, he has scored 3248 runs.

With the series already won, Rohit will now look to complete a whitewash in his maiden series as the Indian team's full-time captain, having taken up the role ahead of the series' commencement. The former holder, Virat Kohli, stood down after the end of India's dismal T20 World Cup campaign in the United Arab Emirates.

India won the series opener in Jaipur by five wickets and followed it up with a seven-wicket victory in Ranchi, giving the hosts an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
