New Delhi India vs South Africa 2nd T20: Team India captain Virat Kohli has created a history as he scored a half-century against South Africa. Virat Kohli's brilliant innings came off the bat in the second match of the three-match T20 series against South Africa at Mohali's PCA Cricket Stadium. It was on this innings that he took a world record. 

In fact, captain Virat Kohli scored the 22nd half-century of his T20 International career in this match against South Africa. With this half-century, Virat Kohli broke the world record of Team India's vice-captain Rohit Sharma, who has scored 21 half-centuries in this format of cricket. At the same time, Martin Guptill is third in this list with 16 half-centuries.
