Hitman is on the verge of joining MS Dhoni and Suresh Raina in the elite list. He is just one match away from becoming the third Indian player to play 300 T20 matches. Former Indian skipper has been part of 301 matches in the shortest format while Suresh Raina recently touched the 300 mark.
14 cricketers in total have played 300 or more T20 matches with Kieron Pollard leading the table with 451 appearances. The current vice-captain of the Indian team has played 94 T20Is for Men in Blue.
He needs just two sixes to go ahead of New Zealand’s Martin Guptill and West Indies batsman Chris Gayle (both with 103 sixes) to become the leading six hitter in T20 internationals.
