IND vs AFG 3rd T20I: The third T20 match of the three-match T20 series between India and Afghanistan will be played today (January 17) at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru. This match is going to be very important for Indian team captain Rohit Sharma. Even though Team India has performed very well in this series under his captaincy, he has been a complete flop as a batsman.

Rohit Sharma close to shameful record

Rohit Sharma has been out without opening the account in both the opening matches against Afghanistan. Rohit is also the Indian batsman who has been out on zero the most number of times in T20. If he is unable to open the wicket even in the last match of the series, then he will become the batsman with the joint highest number of dismissals in T20 International cricket. Rohit Sharma has been out without opening the account 12 times in his T20 International career. At the same time, Paul Stirling of Ireland has been out on zero the most number of times in T20I cricket, 13 times.

Players who have been out on zero the most number of times in T20I cricket

  1. Paul Sterling- 13 times
  2. Rohit Sharma- 12 times
  3. Kevin Erakos – 12 times
  4. Kevin O’Brien- 12 times
  5. Daniel Anefee- 11 times

Opportunity to break MS Dhoni’s record

Rohit has captained India in 53 T20 matches so far. Out of these, Team India has won 41 matches and has faced defeat in only 12 matches. Whereas, MS Dhoni played a total of 72 T20 matches as Indian captain. Out of these, Team India had won 42 matches and had to face defeat in 28. At the same time, 2 matches were cancelled. In such a situation, if Rohit is successful in winning the last match of the series, then he will equal MS Dhoni in terms of winning the most T20 matches as a captain for India.
