South Africa’s close-tryst with Covid-19 patient, Hussain’s strong message to purists, and Rohit Sharma’s trolling of ICC.
Rohit Sharma was ruled out of the ODI and Test series against New Zealand. Kane Willaimson was removed from the first two ODIs against India followed by his shoulder injury. Kl Rahul and Jasprit Bumrah gained in the newly released ICC T20I rankings.
No team has ever whitewashed a bilateral T20I series of 5 or more matches. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma needs 82 runs to go past Virat Kohli and reclaim the world record for most T20I runs.
Only 70 runs separate Kohli and Rohit, the top two run-getters in T20I history, as India eye their maiden win at Westpac Stadium.
Rohit Sharma helped India win the T20I series against New Zealand in the Super Over. New Zealand secured a semi-final spot in the Under-19 World Cup. Saqib Mahmood replaced injured Jofra Archer for the T20I series against South Africa.
India have never beaten New Zealand in a bilateral series at their den: they lost 0-2 in 2008-09 and 1-2 in 2018-19.
India have never won consecutive T20Is against New Zealand. They have also never lost a T20I at Eden Park.
India won the ODI series against Australia. England dominated throughout at Port Elizabeth. India and Pakistan began their Under-19 World Cup campaign with big wins.
India have won 13 matches at both Chinnaswamy and Barabati Stadium, their most at any Indian ground. Meanwhile, Rohit Sharma has reached 8,996 ODI runs and Pat Cummins 98 wickets.
India have lost both ODIs played at SCA Stadium so far, against England in 2012-13 and against South Africa in 2016-17, though they do hold a 6-5 ratio at the now-defunct Madhavrao Scindia Ground.
