The team has a golden opportunity to equal Pakistan’s record in T20 International cricket. Today this record will be added to India’s name with the victory in the second match of the series against West Indies under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma.
Significantly, after losing in the ‘ICC T20 World Cup – 2021’, the Indian team has won 7 consecutive T20 matches. If India’s team wins against the West Indies (West Indies vs India Eden Gardens Cricket Stadium, 2022) at the Eden Gardens Cricket Stadium in Kolkata today, it will be India’s 8th consecutive win in T20Is. If this happens, Team India will have a golden chance to match Pakistan’s record. Significantly, Pakistan had won 9 consecutive T20 International matches in 2018.
India will also join this list of England and Ireland
The history of international cricket shows that Afghanistan holds the record of winning the most consecutive T20I matches in Test Nations, i.e., a Test match playing country. Afghanistan had won 12 consecutive matches in 2018-19. At the same time, in 2016-17, Afghanistan had won 11 consecutive T20 matches. And, in the year 2018 itself, Pakistan had raised its flag in 9 consecutive matches. Not only this, England and Ireland have also won 8 matches in a row. India is not behind. The Indian team has won 7 consecutive matches 4 times so far. Before the year 2021-22, in the year 2018, 2016 and the year 2012-14, Team India won 7 consecutive matches. But, till date, the 8th consecutive match has never been in the name of India.
