Bangla Hunt News Desk: India vs Australia three match T20 series is going to start from half an hour today. The importance of this series as a preparation for T20 World Cup is immense. The two cricketers the Indian team is relying on the most to win this series are multi-battle heroes Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. These experienced stars are in the best form of the Indian team at the moment. Both can break several records in this series against Ajid. Let’s see which records Rohit and Virat are standing in front of.
First let’s talk about the current captain of India Rohit Sharma. Currently, Rohit Sharma is number two in the list of most sixes in the T20 format in international cricket. Only New Zealand opener Martin Guptill is ahead of him. A few days ago, Hitman reached the milestone of 3500 runs by breaking the Kiwi opener’s record as the highest run scorer in T20 cricket. He will become the owner of the highest number of sixes in T20 International cricket after hitting just two more makas. Currently his number of sixes in this format is 171. Martin Guptill has 172 sixes to his name.
On the other hand, talking about Virat, it needs to be stated that right now Virat Kohli is the highest run scorer in T20 cricket after Rohit Sharma. A few days ago, he scored his 71st career international and first century in the T20 format against Afghanistan. He will basically get a chance to break two records in the current series.
1. Virat Kohli’s total number of runs in all forms of T20 cricket at the moment is 10,902. And 98 runs will make the 33-year-old former Indian captain the first Indian cricketer to become the owner of 11,000 T20 runs.
2. Kohli is currently the third highest run scorer in international cricket among Indian cricketers with 24002 runs. Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid are ahead. Sachin’s number of runs is still far away from Virat’s but if he makes only 62 more runs in the current series, he will become the second highest international run scorer for the Indian team after Rahul Dravid’s 24064 runs.
