5 batsmen who can score a century in India vs Australia T20I series

The Indian cricket team is currently touring Australia. The two teams will play 3 ODIs, 3 T20Is, and 4 Tests on this tour. Fans will closely follow the 3-match T20I series between the two sides because the T20 World Cup 2021 is approaching fast.

Also, there are two T20 World Cup events in the next two years, meaning that every bilateral series will serve as the platform for teams to try out new options. While the Indian cricket team has the most significant T20 league on the planet, their T20I side has not performed consistently.

Currently, Australia is at the number one position on the ICC T20I Rankings for teams. The Men in Blue will be high on confidence, having defeated New Zealand 5-0 in the previous T20I series which they played.


The grounds in Australia have produced high-scoring matches, and here are the five batsmen who could possibly register a century in this 3-match T20I series.

Virat Kohli

Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has registered five centuries for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL. However, he is yet to touch the three-figure mark even once in the game’s shortest format while donning the blue jersey.

Kohli has come close to the 100-runs milestone many times, but he has not been to open his account in that aspect. Since it has been a long time since the fans witnessed King Kohli celebrate a century in the T20 format, the T20I series against Australia would be a grand platform for this accomplishment.


Shikhar Dhawan

The reason why many feel that Shikhar Dhawan could score a century in this T20I series is because the left-handed batsman looked in splendid touch during IPL 2020. He finished second, only behind KL Rahul, on the Orange Cap leaderboard.

Notably, Shikhar ended his drought of T20 hundreds by scoring back-to-back hundreds in the United Arab Emirates. He became the only batsman to achieve this feat in IPL history. If the Delhi Capitals star replicates that performance against Australia, no one could stop the visitors from winning the T20I series.

KL Rahul

India’s number one wicket-keeper batsman in T20Is at the moment, KL Rahul will most probably open the innings for the team in this series. Rahul had a memorable series against New Zealand earlier this year. Besides, he also shattered Rishabh Pant’s record for the highest individual score by an Indian in IPL history.


Since he won the Orange Cap in IPL 2020, a lot of fans will have high hopes from the Karnataka-based batsman in the upcoming series. It will be interesting to see if Rahul could continue his T20 form versus the mighty Aussies.

David Warner

David Warner has been in sublime touch this year. After a memorable IPL 2020, David has continued his form in the ongoing tour against India. The former IPL Orange Cap winner is the likeliest candidate from the Australian team to touch the 3-figure mark in this series.

Warner loves to bat against the Indian bowlers, and this is another strong reason why he can score a 100 against India in this 3-match series.


Glenn Maxwell

Glenn Maxwell seems to be a totally different batsman in the Australian jersey. He performed brilliantly against the England team earlier this year, while he also blew away the Indian bowlers at the Sydney Cricket Ground in the first ODI match.

The Kings XI Punjab all-rounder has already scored a T20I hundred against the Indian cricket team. Since he has an excellent record against the Men in Blue, another hundred from his bat in this series could not be ruled out by any means. Thus, these are the five names who could score a hundred in the upcoming T20I series.
