The 33-year-old has joined Sri Lanka legend Mahela Jayawardene in the exclusive list with 1,001 runs in 24 matches, which he has scored at an average of 83.41.
He has a whopping 12 T20 World Cup half-centuries to his name.
Coming into the match, Kohli needed 11 runs to become the second batter to cross the 1,000-run mark in the T20 World Cup.
Jayawardene remains the leading run-getter in T20 World Cup history with 1,016 runs in 31 matches.
Earlier in the tournament, Kohli went past the legendary Sachin Tendulkar to become the player with the most fifty-plus scores in ICC events.
