India National Cricket Team created history by surpassing arch-rivals Pakistan National Cricket Team and becoming the team to win most T20 Internationals (T20Is) in a calendar year.

Rohit Sharma-led India achieved the sensational milestone on Sunday, September 25, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Uppal, Hyderabad by defeating Aaron Finch-led Australia by 6 wickets to clinch the series victory by 2-1.

The Men In Blue have won 21 T20Is in 2022, which is the most by a team in a calendar year. Previously, the record was held by the Men in Green, who won 20 T20Is in 2021.

The Men In Blue started off the year with the whitewash over West Indies and Sri Lanka at home. In June, India managed to draw the 5-match T20I series against South Africa 2-2.

Under the guidance of Hardik Pandya and VVS Laxman, the Men In Blue defeated Ireland in their own backyard by 2-0. In July, Rohit and Co. registered a 2-1 series win over Jos Buttler-led England National Cricket Team in their own territory.

Also, the Men In Blue won by 4-1 in the five-match T20I series against West Indies National Cricket Team. After that, India didn’t have a good run in the Asia Cup 2022 as they failed to reach the final and finished third in the Super 4 stage.
