As India and Sri Lanka are all geared up for the T20 series starting today, there are plenty of milestones for the taking. India would want to carry the momentum gained by wins in test and ODIs series while Sri Lanka would play for their pride.
The first of the 3 T20 will be hosted by Cuttack today and once again the captain duties of the Indian team will be discharged by Rohit Sharma. India defeated Sri Lanka in tests series by 1-0 while in the ODI series the visitors were thrashed 2-1.
India would be looking for a clean sweep and that would boost India’s morales ahead of the typical your of South Africa. Here are the milestones that could be achieved today.
These players can achieve these great records in this T20 series and India has plenty of milestones to claim in this 3 Match series.
1. Jasprit Bumrah
The stalwart Indian bowler has 96 international wickets so far. 4 wickets in this series and he competes his tally of 100. He has 56 wickets in ODIs and 40 in T20s.
2. Rohit Sharma
Hitman needs just 3 more sixes to compete 250 sixes in international cricket. If he does so then he would become only the third Indian batsman to have more than 250 sixes. Others in the list are Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni.
3. MS Dhoni
Mahi has 194 T20 dismissals to his name as of now. 6 note dismissals and he would become only the second wicket keeper ever to have 200 T20 dismissals. The other one is Kamran Akmal.
A batting record too awaits MS Dhoni. Dhoni as of now has 15881 international career runs. He needs just 119 runs to become the sixth player with 16000 international runs to his account.
4. KL Rahul
KL Rahul has 1980 international runs to his name. 20 more runs and he would complete 2000 international runs. KL Rahul has 1428 Test runs, 248 ODI runs and 304 in T20 internationals. In Dhawan’s absence it’s certain that Rahul will open the innings with Rohit Sharma.
