IND vs AUS: While the Men in Blue registered a win against Australia 2-1 in the T20I series, which concluded on Sunday in Hyderabad with India’s 6-wicket victory, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma shattered several records as well.

India won by 6 wickets in Nagpur after losing by 4 wickets in Mohali. India completed the chase of 187 in Hyderabad with just one ball remaining. All three of the games, which the chasing side ultimately won, were decided in the last over. This made for an exciting, closely contested series between the two nations, who are both heavy favourites to win the T20 World Cup. Let us have a look at the records that Rohit Sharma broke while achieving this mammoth feat.

1. Most Wins in T20I in 2022 – 21

India’s victory over Australia became their 21st T20I victory of 2022. Pakistan held the previous record with 20 T20I victories in 2021.
