Rohit Sharma-led India on the verge of registering a world record in International Cricket 
The biggest cricket match of the ongoing T20 World Cup is scheduled to start in a few hours. It will be India facing archrivals Pakistan at the most iconic cricket ground in the world, Melbourne Cricket Stadium.

Both teams will open their campaigns with a match against each other. A win in this game will surely help the team inch closer towards the semi-finals. Thus, both teams will look to put everything on the line to register this win.

The excitement of this game has already reached its maximum. Fans across the world are excited to watch these two teams come face-to-face. The last meeting between the two was not an ideal result for the Men in Blue. They suffered a humiliating 10-wicket loss at the hands of Pakistan.

These two teams also played two games in the Asia Cup 2022 and treated the fans to two thrillers. The first game was won by India in the group stage, while Pakistan won the next in the "super 4".

However, a win in this upcoming game will not only set a tone for the Men in Blue, but it will also help the team set a world record. If India wins this game, it will surpass Australia to become the team with the most wins across formats in a calendar year.

The win against South Africa in the second T20I at home helped India equal the record of Ricky Ponting's Australia tally of 38 wins, which came in 2003. It included 30 ODIs and 8 Tests. India has also won 38 games in 2022, which includes mostly the T20I games. However, India started 2022 with five back-to-back defeats.

India saw a total of seven captains in its calendar year, but most of the wins came under the leadership of Rohit Sharma. A win against Pakistan at the MCG will make them the team with the most wins in a calendar year.
