Former Pakistan cricketer Shahid Afridi congratulated Indian captain Virat Kohli on becoming the leading run-scorer in T20I history.
Kohli led from the front against South Africa when he scored 72 off 52 deliveries as his side chased down a 150-run target in 19 overs in the second T20I between the two sides. He is the only batsman to have an average of over 50 in all three formats of the game.
