Indian cricketers crosses lot of milestones on Sri Lanka tour

Currently, the Indian cricket team is looking invincible at least to the Sri Lankan team who faced back-to-back clean sweeps at home. Firstly, India whitewashed the Islanders in the Test series by 3-0 and on Sunday, the hosts were defeated by a margin of 5-0 in the recently concluded ODI series.

The visitors must be looking to finish their tour on a high by winning the one-off T20I on Wednesday and continue their dominance so far. It seems that they will be sweeping the One-Day series as well. The T20 match is the only hope for the Sri Lanka team in order to save their pride. Here are some of the unknown milestones, that can be reached in this only T20 International:

99: Ms Dhoni has scored 99 fifties in international cricket so far and one more half-century will make him the 4th Indian batsman to cross the milestone of 100 fifties and 14th cricketer across nations.

32: Indian skipper Virat Kohli needs just 32 more runs in order to go past Mohammad Shahzad in the list of leading run-getters in T20Is. He has scored 1,748 runs in the shortest format and is at 5th position in the list. However, if he scores 59 runs, Virat will go past Martin Guptill (1,806) as well and move to 3rd position.

7: Virat needs 7 more runs in order to complete 15,000 runs in international cricket. He will become 7th Indian and 33rd overall to achieve this feat. Besides that, he will become the fastest in terms of innings and 2nd fastest in terms of time and age.

2: Two Sri Lankan batsmen are on the verge of crossing the milestone of 1,000 runs at home in international cricket. They are Niroshan Dickwella (29 runs behind) and Thisara Perera (56 runs behind). Whichever player gets to this milestone first, will become 23rd Sri Lankan to do so.

69: MS Dhoni requires just 69 more runs to touch 3,000-run mark in all the formats against Sri Lanka. He will become 8th cricketer to do so.

2: Axar Patel requires 2 more wickets to reach the milestone of 50 wickets in international cricket.

1: Lasith Malinga is one wicket away from reaching the milestone of 200 wickets at home across formats. He will become 4th Sri Lankan after Muttiah Muralitharan, Chaminda Vaas and Rangana Herath to achieve this feat.
