The record is held by former Australian cricket captain Ricky Ponting. He won 20 consecutive matches in 2003. Indian captain Rohit Sharma is now just one match away from this figure. The third Twenty20 match between India and England will be played today. If India wins today’s match, there will be a clean sweep of England on the one hand and a big record in the name of Rohit Sharma on the other. Earlier, India lost the fifth Test. With this defeat, the dream of the Indian team to win the Test series in England remained unfulfilled.
The third match today
As soon as Rohit Sharma entered the field for this match, he became the player to play the most number of Twenty20 International matches (men and women together). This was his 127th Twenty20 international match. The third and final match of the three-match series between the two teams will be played today. The match in Nottingham will also be played from 7 pm Indian time. If we take a look at the T20 World Cup, we can see changes in the playing XI of both the teams in this match. In particular, the Indian team may once again replace wicketkeeper Dinesh Karthik with Deepak Hooda in the playing XI. At the same time, Umran Malik could replace Hershel Patel in the bowling department.
