IND vs SL 2nd T20I: 3 big records Shikhar Dhawan and co. can script in second T20I against Sri Lanka: India tour of Sri Lanka: Shikhar Dhawan led India team flagged off the three-match T20I series with a win against Sri Lanka. The two Asian countries are drilling hard for the second contest scheduled to take place on July 27 in Colombo. While team India would try to win the match and seal the series, two Indian players- Shikhar Dhawan and Yuzvendra Chahal would try to achieve their personal records in the second T20I.
India’s standing skipper- Shikhar Dhawan, who earlier reached the 6000-run mark in ODIs and then breached the 1000-run mark in ODIs against Sri Lanka, is now on the verge of surpassing Virat Kohli in a unique feat. The left-handed batsman has a chance to overtake Virat Kohli for most T20I runs against Sri Lanka.
IND vs SL 2nd T20I: Shikhar Dhawan can drub Virat Kohli’s record for most T20I runs against Sri Lanka in the second T20I
Dhawan currently has 335 runs from 10 games and falls four runs short of equalling Kohli’s record which currently stands 339 runs from seven T20Is against the island country.
Besides, Dhawan can also equal Kohli in terms of half-centuries in the shortest format of the game. Kohli, who holds four fifties might see an equal neck from Dhawan if he smashes a half-century in the upcoming game. Currently, Dhawan has three fifties against the neighboring country in the shortest format of the game.
IND vs SL 2nd T20: Dhawan 99 runs short to surpass Gayle in T20Is in terms of runs
A hundred from Shikhar Dhawan’s willow in the second T20I against the neighbouring country can easily sail him over Chris Gayle in terms of total runs in the shortest format. Dhawan, who currently has 1719 runs falls 99 runs short of Gayle’s amalgamation, which stands at 1818 total runs. If Dhawan manages a ton, he would not only breach Gayle’s run feat but will also achieve his maiden hundred in the T20I format.
IND vs SL T20I: Yuzvendra Chahal could become highest wicket-taker against Sri Lanka
India’s spin wizard Yuzvendra Chahal indeed made his comeback to international cricket with flying colors courtesy of his performance against Sri Lanka. Chahal is on the cusp of achieving a unique record as he looks to play the second T20I against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
If the spin bowler manages to take just one more scalp, he would become the highest wicket-taker against Sri Lanka in T20 cricket. The leg spinner, who currently has 15 wickets against the Lankan in the shortest format of the game, equals England pacer Chris Jordan in this feat.
