Captaincy burden lifted off

  • He has scored 70 tons across all formats and is just one shy of equalling Ricky Ponting’s century tally.
  • With an international century eluding the former Indian captain for two years now he will be eager to score one in the upcoming series and reach the second spot.
  • If he manages to score two tons in this three-match ODI series, he will surpass Ricky Ponting and will only be behind Sachin Tendulkar, who has 100 tons to his name.
