ICC T20 World Cup 2024: 3 Potential Records That Could Be Broken In AUS vs IND Match

Mondays don’t get more exciting than this: the entirety is at stake as India faces Australia in the 2024 Men’s T20 World Cup. Australia should secure a decisive victory to save the underdogs Afghanistan from claiming their semifinal spot.

For India, the best incentive is to halt the campaign of the team that defeated them in both the World Test Championship and the men’s ODI World Cup finals in 2023. Amid the intense competition, several significant individual records are also within reach. Check them out here:

#1 Mitchell Marsh could become the fastest Australian to reach 500 T20 World Cup runs

Only three Australians have surpassed the 500-run milestone in men’s T20 World Cups: David Warner, Glenn Maxwell, and Shane Watson. Current captain Mitchell Marsh is just 91 runs short of becoming the fourth, thanks to his impressive performances in previous tournaments.

If Marsh achieves this on Monday in his 19th match, he will be the fastest to reach the milestone, surpassing Warner’s record of 25 matches. Maxwell took 30 matches (reaching the mark against Afghanistan on Sunday), while Watson took 23. Despite not being in great form this World Cup, Marsh might deliver his best performance when it matters most.

#2 Arshdeep Singh needs just one wicket to surpass RP Singh’s record

Following his two wickets against Bangladesh on Saturday, left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh now has 12 wickets in 5 matches inside the 2024 T20 World Cup. His sharp tempo, variations, and capacity to unsettle batters both inside the powerplay and on the death had been surprisingly effective.

He requires just one extra wicket to become India’s maximum wicket-taker in a single edition of the T20 World Cup, surpassing former speedy bowler RP Singh’s record of 12 wickets, accomplished in seven matches in 2007. Given Arshdeep’s consistency, this milestone appears nicely inside his attain.

#3 Virat Kohli needs just 43 more runs to become the highest run-scorer in T20Is

Despite his inconsistent (however enhancing) shape this World Cup, Virat Kohli is on the point of a major milestone. If he rankings 43 more runs towards Australia on Monday (in his 123rd match), he’ll quickly reclaim the top spot as the very best run-scorer in T20 World Cup records.

The present-day leader is Pakistan’s Babar Azam with 4146 runs in 123 matches, however, his team is already out of the tournament. Kohli, with 4103 runs, is anticipated to have at least one greater game after this. His opening partner and India captain, Rohit Sharma, is also close with 4073 runs in 156 matches.
