New Zealand opener Martin Guptill has become the leading run scorer in men’s T20 Internationals. He overtook Virat Kohli in the process as he sent Indian bowlers on a leather hunt in Ranchi. Guptill was the top run scorer in the first T20I, scoring 70 off just 42 and got out to Deepak Chahar after a bit of banter. Guptill now has one more than 3,227 runs scored by Virat Kohli. Kohli’s vice captain and now team India captain Rohit Sharma is third on the list. He is followed by Australia’s Aaron Finch and Ireland’s Paul Stirling at fifth position.

Guptill was very far from Kohli, but then he came up with a 70-run knock at Jaipur which helped NZ stage a rescue act after they lost Daryl Mitchell for a first ball duck. Meanwhile Guptill lost his battle with Deepak Chahar once again as he was caught by Rishabh Pant in the second T20I in Ranchi for 31 runs which came in just 14 balls.

IND vs NZ, 2nd T20I Live Score

A nice little encounter between Martin Guptill and Deepak Chahar became intense as India took on New Zealand in the first of the three match T20I series in Jaipur. The incident happened in the 18th over when Guptill launched Chahar for a massive six and gave him a stare just to show the bowler who the boss is. But Chahar didn’t take it kindly enough, and the very next ball he had his chance. It was a length ball, the batter again gave it a whack, but found the fielder this time as Shreyas Iyer took a brilliant running catch to end his 70-run knock. But the bowler wasn’t done yet, he had avenged what had happened a ball before, and there was one thing left. A death stare ensued, of course from Chahar.
