Team India completed a resounding comeback to seal a memorable series victory against Australia with a tense six-wicket victory in the series decider on Sunday (September 25) at the Rajiv Gandhi Stadium in Hyderabad, despite losing the first game of the series in Mohali.

Cameron Green's 19-ball 50 gave Australia an incredible start after India won the toss and chose to bowl first. Axar Patel's three-wicket haul kept India in the game as he continued his sensational form with the ball, which has seen him take seven wickets in a high-scoring series. The visitors finished with a total of 186 on the board, led by Tim 
David's maiden half-century for Australia.

In response, India lost both openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul early in the chase, but Suryakumar Yadav and Virat Kohli put the hosts back on track with a 100-run partnership, with both players scoring half-centuries. The game went into a tense final over, but Hardik Pandya's calmness ensured India won with one ball to spare.

India set a new world record

As a result of the victory, India set a new world record for the most wins by a team in international cricket in a calendar year. In fact, the Rohit Sharma-led team broke 
Pakistan's previous record, which they set last year (2021). India has now won 21 games in 2022, while Pakistan has won 20 in 2021.

Most T20I wins in a year

India - 21 in 29 matches - 2022
Pakistan - 20 in 29 matches – 2021

India still have three matches against South Africa and New Zealand alongside a minimum of five games in the T20 World Cup to play before the end of the year and could extend their record significantly. So far in 2022, India have beaten West Indies (twice), Sri Lanka, England and Ireland in bilateral series alongside wins over Pakistan, Hong 
Kong and Afghanistan in the Asia Cup.
