India skipper Virat Kohli broke another batting record in the first match of New Year as he became the fastest to reach 1000 runs in T20I cricket as captain and only the sixth overall to achieve the feat.

Kohli needed 25 runs to reach the milestone before the start of the three-match Paytm T20 series against Sri Lanka.

Kohli is only the second Indian after MS Dhoni (1112 runs from 62 games) to achieve this feat. Virat Kohli achieved the feat in 30th innings as a skipper.

Virat Kohli has also overtaken his teammate the Hitman Rohit Sharma on the list of most runs scored in T20I cricket. Virat Kohli needed just 1 run to become the batsman with most runs in the T20I format.

Kohli and Rohit Sharma ended 2019 at the joint-top spot as they had amassed 2633 runs each.

The convincing win gave the hosts a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. Virat Kohli won the toss to field first, the bowlers restricted the visitors to a below-par total of 142 at a venue that was supposed to witness a run-fest on Tuesday evening. KL Rahul (45 off 32) provided a perfect start, taking India to 54 for no loss in six overs.

Virat Kohli (30 not out of 17) and Shreyas Iyer (34 of 26), who batted ahead of the skipper at number three, fired India home in 17.3 overs. Iyer fell just before India crossed the finishing line as Kohli finished things with a spectacular six over deep fine leg. The third and final game of the series will be played in Pune on Friday.

India win by 7 wickets and take 1-0 lead in the three-match T20I series.
