Talking of the series between two cricketing giants, India and Australia, there have been batsmen who have produced big numbers from their willows in the shortest format of the game. Both the nations have produced some of the best batsmen to play the game. Let’s take a look at the top five scores in T20I format in two countries.
5. MS Dhoni
The legendary skipper of India bid adieu to the international format of the game in August 2020. He would not be there with team India this time, but his records are still shining in the list. He is at the number 5 position in this list. He has 313 runs in his bag from 2007-19 in 15 innings he has played against Australia. His highest score in the format against Aussies is an unbeaten knock of 48 runs.
4. Rohit Sharma
Popularly known as Hitman, the classic batsman of India Rohit Sharma is the fourth person on the list. He has 318 runs in his account in 16 innings he has played against Australia since 2007-19. The man is not in the current T20 squad against India due to his fitness concerns and has only been named in the longest format of the game. He plays at a strike rate of 133.61.
3. Glenn Maxwell
The all-rounder of Australia team Maxwell stands third in this list.
