6 The number of Indian players to appear in a T20I match for the first time after the age of 31 years. Rahul Tripathi, in Pune, became the latest to join this list. It is no surprise that none of the below mentioned players had a long T20I career. Four of them appeared in only one T20I match of their career, while Stuart Binny managed to appear in three. Tripathi has so far played in two and could perhaps have the longest career in terms of matches among the Indian players who have been listed below.

20 The number of balls Sri Lankan captain Dasun Shanaka required to reach his fifty against India in the second T20I in Pune on 5 January 2023. This is now the joint second-quickest fifty by a batter but the quickest by an opponent captain against India in T20Is. Shanaka’s effort is also now the quickest by a Sri Lankan batter in this format.

5 The number of batters who managed to register three or more centuries in their T20I career. Surya Kumar Yadav in Rajkot on 7 January 2023, became the latest to achieve this in the format. Interestingly, all his three centuries came in a period of fewer than six months. It has taken him only one year and 299 days to make his third three-figure score since making his T20I debut on 14 Mar 2021. Afghanistan-born Sabawoon Davizi, who plays T20Is for the Czech Republic, took two years and 264 days to register his three centuries. However, Davizi achieved his three centuries in just 21 innings, while Yadav took 43 innings and New Zealand’s Colin Munro needed 35 innings.
