India seem to be gaining a lot of positives right in time before the T20 World Cup. India defeated Australia in a thrilling encounter in the third T20I to win the series by 2-1. 

One of the biggest positives for India in the recent times has been the comeback the 'Chase Master'  Virat Kohli in full form. Ever since his century against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup, Kohli has looked is vintage best. 

Yesterday was another example of Kohli at the peak of his batting prowess, switching from attacker to anchor, from anchor to attacker at will. He struck a beautiful 63 runs in 48 balls, consisting of three fours and four sixes at an impressive strike rate of 131.25. The 33 year old ensured India was in the touching distance of victory.

Kohli becomes the second player to score 16,000 runs in white ball cricket

After yesterday's outstanding innings, Kohli managed to achieve another milestone. He now has 16,004 runs across T20I and ODI formats. The 'run machine' made these runs in the 352 innings at a mid boggling average of 55.95. He has 44 centuries in white ball cricket along with 97 half centuries. 

He is also the second-highest run-scorer in the history of white-ball cricket. The first one to score 16,000 runs in white-ball cricket after Sachin Tendulkar.
