India stalwarts Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Mahendra Singh Dhoni are on the cusp of achieving respective milestones in the second and final T20I against Australia in Bengaluru. The ‘Men in Blue’ will be eying a win in order to level the two-match series after losing the first T20I in Visakhapatnam by three wickets.
The onus will be on batsman to turn the team’s fortunes around after an uncharacteristic performance in Vizag that saw the team post just 126/7 in 20 overs. All eyes will be on the Indian hard-hitters to get some runs under their belt ahead of the five-match ODI series. Opener Rohit is on the cusp of becoming the leading six-hitter in the shortest format of the game. He is just one six behind the likes of Windies hard-hitter Chris Gayle and New Zealand star opener Martin Guptill in the illustrious list.
While as for Kohli and Dhoni, the duo is involved in a race of their own as to who will get to 50 T20I sixes first. Dhoni has 49 maximums to his name so far while Kohli has hit 48. It will be interesting to see which player among these two will become the fourth Indian to hit 50 T20I sixes. Other than these personal milestones, the players will be eager to achieve a series-saving win at the Chinnaswamy Stadium. Australia, on the other hand, will be fancying a rare series win against India in recent times, especially after losing the Test and ODI series at home to Kohli’s team.
