With a total score of 281, Rizwan broke the record set by India’s Virat Kohli at the mega Asian event. Kohli had scored a total of 276 runs over the course of five innings before India was kicked out of the tournament after losing to Afghanistan.

After hitting a six off of Sri Lanka’s Chamika Karunaratne’s ball in the 16th over, the top T20I batter became the player with the most runs.

In the Asia Cup, the wicket-keeper batter had three scores of 50 or more in six innings.
