India is ready to face Australia at home in the limited-overs series. Before the five-match ODI series, India and Australia will play 2 T20Is. They will play these T20I matches on 24 and 27 February at Visakhapatnam and Bengaluru respectively.

The Indian limited-overs vice-captain Rohit Sharma has the excellent opportunity to achieve this record in the upcoming home series. He has to hit only two sixes to becoming the leader in the most sixes in the T20Is. While he is in the top form at present, it can be expected that Rohit Sharma will achieve this feat very soon in the upcoming T20I series.

After this T20I series, India doesn’t has any T20I schedule till the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup that will begin on 30 May. England and Wales will organise the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup, while India will start their journey on 5 June against South Africa at Southampton.
