Indian openers Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan have been in form in the limited-overs format this year.
Indian openers will be looking to continue their fine form in Australia and will aim to overhaul a number of records including one currently held by Indian captain Virat Kohli.
Dhawan has been India’s highest run-getter in T20Is this year and his in touching distance to overtake Kohli’s record of most runs in a calendar in the shortest format. While Rohit will also be bidding for the same record in the T20I series against Australia starting on Wednesday.
Dhawan has been India’s highest run-getter in T20Is this year with a staggering 572 runs from 15 games at an astounding average of 38.13 including five half-centuries. The southpaw requires just 69 runs to break Kohli’s record of most runs in T20Is in a calendar year. While Rohit is 79 runs away from overhauling the record. Kohli had slammed 641 runs in 2016 which is the highest by any batsman in a calendar year in T20Is.
