India and South Africa will face each other in the 3rd T20I at M Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday. The victory on Sunday will help India clean sweep the series, while a victory for South Africa will help them share spoils. 

Apart from series being at stake, the match will also witness the battle of T20I dominance between India captain Virat Kohli and vice-captain Rohit Sharma. The two Indian batting stalwarts will once again battle to be on top of the list of leading run-scorers’ in T20I cricket,

Virat Kohli edged past Rohit to become the leading scorer with a match-winning knock of 72* in the 2nd T20I against Proteas earlier this week in Mohali. But Kohli’s reign at the top could come to an end on Sunday, with Sharma regaining the top spot when he comes out to bat. 

The right-handed batsman is just eight runs away from Kohli’s feat and could take the top spot. Kohli has 2,441 runs in T20I cricket, while Sharma has 2,434 runs.

Meanwhile, Sharma’s fellow opening partner, Dhawan, who has scored 6,996 runs in T20 cricket needs just four runs to complete 7,000 runs in the shortest format. If he manages to do so, he will become only the fourth Indian following Kohli, Suresh Raina, and Rohit to reach the landmark in T20s.
