Kohli leads from the front

During the same innings when Virat Kohli became the leading run-getter in T20I cricket against Sri Lanka at Indore, he also became the sixth player in history to aggregate 1000 or more runs as captain. By doing so in his 30th innings, he became the quickest to reach this landmark in the fewest number of innings. He bettered the previous record held by South African captain Faf du Plessis by just one innings. The images below provide all the details.

   

A captain – par excellence!

In the Pune T20I against Sri Lanka, Kohli added another feather to his cap when he became the sixth batsman in international cricket to aggregate 11000 or more runs as captain across all formats. While achieving this milestone, he also became the quickest to do so in the fewest number of innings. The two graphs below have all the details.

Bumrah – now India’s latest top T20I wicket-taker

In the Pune T20I against Sri Lanka, Jasprit Bumrah became the leading wicket-taker for India in this format. Before this match – R Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal and Jasprit Bumrah were jointly holding the record with 52 wickets each. With his only wicket in the match, Bumrah became the leading wicket-taker for India in their T20I history. The graph below shows the progressive record of how various Indian bowlers held the record for most wickets at one point in their career.

Warner continues with his run-scoring spree

In the opening ODI against India at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, Australian opener David Warner became the 89th player to aggregate 5000 runs in ODI cricket. In the process, he became the fourth quickest to reach this milestone in the fewest number of innings. He is also by far the fastest to this landmark by an Australian batsman.

Warner - quicker than Kohli

Warner, in the Mumbai ODI, registered the 18th century of his career. In doing so in his 115th innings, he became the second quickest to achieve this in ODI history. Only South Africa’s Hashim Amla was quicker (in 102 innings).

The Warner-Finch partnership

The record stand of 258 (unbeaten) between Warner and Aaron Finch in the Mumbai ODI is not only the best against India for the opening wicket but the highest by any pair for any wicket against India.

Meanwhile, the Warner-Finch opening stand is now the third-highest for any wicket in a run chase in ODI cricket. The image below lists the details of all such instances.

Australia win without the loss of a wicket

In the history of ODI cricket, there have been only seven instances of sides successfully chasing down a target of 200 without losing a wicket. Australia in the Mumbai ODI successfully chased the second-highest target without the loss of a wicket.

Wins and defeats by huge margins in ODIs

At the Wankhede Stadium, India suffered the ignominy of losing an ODI match without their opponent losing a single wicket for the fifth time in their history, while Australia had the honour of registering their first 10-wicket victory against India and their fifth overall against any opponent. The images below have the details.




(all records mentioned above are for men's cricket and are complete and updated until 14 January 2020)
