Most runs in history
Virat Kohli has scored the most runs in the history of T20 World Cup, who has scored 1292 runs. Rohit Sharma is second on this list, who has scored 1220 runs. Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not been able to score a century in the T20 World Cup. Kohli's highest score is 89 (not out) and Rohit's best score is 92 runs.

Highest Average
Virat Kohli also holds the record for scoring runs at the highest average in T20 World Cup history. Virat's average in this tournament has been 58.72. This is the highest among batsmen who have played more than one T20 World Cup. Rohit Sharma's average has been 34.85 runs.

The most fifty
Virat Kohli also holds the record for scoring the most half-centuries in T20 World Cup history. Virat has scored 15 half-centuries in this tournament. Rohit Sharma has scored 12 half-centuries in T20 World Cup history. More than any batsman in the world, but less than Virat.

Most runs in a season
Virat Kohli scored 319 runs in 6 matches in the T20 World Cup 2014. This is the most runs scored by any batsman in a single edition of the tournament. Tillakaratne Dilshan (317) is at number two. Rohit Sharma is at number 13 in this list with 217 runs.

2 fifties in the finals
Virat Kohli is the only Indian to score two half-centuries in the T20 World Cup final. He scored 77 against Sri Lanka in 2014 and 76 against South Africa in 2024. Gautam Gambhir scored 75 in the 2007 final. Apart from Kohli and Gambhir, no other Indian has been able to score a half-century in a T20 World Cup final. Rohit Sharma played 3 T20 World Cup finals but could score only 68 runs.

Rohit left Virat behind in captaincy
Rohit Sharma has become the second captain to win the T20 World Cup as a captain. He is the third Indian captain to win the World Cup. In 1983, Kapil Dev won the World Cup for India for the first time as a captain. After this, MS Dhoni won the World Cup trophy in 2007 and 2011. That means whenever it comes to captaincy, Rohit Sharma will prevail over his teammate Virat Kohli. There is no doubt about this. But as a player, he is behind Kohli. There is no doubt about this either.
