Team India is eyeing a significant T20I record as they prepare for the third match against Australia in the five-game series.
Led by Suryakumar Yadav, the squad is close to overtaking Pakistan T20 record wins. Their chance to claim the 136th victory in this format looms as they gear up to face Australia at Barsapara Stadium on November 28.
Under Suryakumar Yadav’s guidance, India has been strong in the initial two T20 matches, taking a 2-0 lead and standing on the verge of becoming the most successful T20I team.
Currently tied with Pakistan at 135 wins in 211 games, India has the opportunity to clinch the top spot.
Pakistan shares the same win count, achieved in 226 matches. India’s home record has been formidable, with an unbeaten streak of 12 series. Their last home defeat dates back to February 2019 against Australia.
Suryakumar Yadav’s leadership has spurred exceptional performances in the opening T20Is against Australia. India won the first match by two wickets and dominated the second with a 44-run victory, showcasing strong batting.
Impressive displays from Ishan Kishan, scoring two consecutive half-centuries, along with contributions from Yashasvi Jaiswal and Ruturaj Gaikwad, bolstered India’s runs.
Suryakumar Yadav’s dominance against Australia’s bowlers was notable, with Rinku Singh’s explosive performance in the final overs of both games, particularly in the second T20 where he scored 31 runs in just 9 balls, boasting a remarkable strike rate of 344.
