After a 20-run win over Australia, India overtook Pakistan to clinch a sensational T20I record.

After a series of underwhelming performances, Indian cricket team all-rounder Axar Patel produced his A game and helped his side defeat Australia by 20 runs in the fourth T20I in Raipur on Friday. The victory helped India take an unassailable 3-1 lead in the five-match series, which was also their 14th T20I series win at home. Additionally, the team also set a new record for winning the most T20Is, overtaking Pakistan in the process. The outcome helped India register their 136th T20I win, while Pakistan have 135 wins under their name. They are followed by New Zealand (102), Australia (95), and South Africa (95).
With the series in hand, India will now meet Australia in the final T20I match in Bengaluru on Sunday. This will be the final match of the host at home before it embarks on a tour of South Africa, where India are scheduled to take part in three ODIs, as many T20Is, and two Tests.
