INDvsAUS: T20I series begins tomorrow; Indian player verge of making few records

The Australia tour of India will begin from tomorrow; 24 Feb. Australia will play two T20I matches and 5 one-day matches. The first T20 will be played at 7 pm in Visakhapatnam. Team India captain Virat Kohli has returned to the team. For Viay Shankar, it will be a great opportunity to cement his place in the team in the absence of Hardik Pandya, who is out with his recurring lower back injury.

Indian player verge of making few records

  • Virat Kohli is just 12 runs away from completing 500 runs against Australia in T20Is and if he achieves the feat, he will become the first ever batsmen to do so.
  • Rohit Sharma needs two more sixes to claim the record for most sixes in T20Is – currently Chris Gayle & Martin Guptill both have hit 103 sixes each.
  • Jasprit Bumrah needs two more wickets to become the second Indian bowler to reach 50 wickets in T20Is after R Ashwin (52).
