New Delhi. The third and final match of the 3 T20 match series being played between Australia and Sri Lanka will be played in Kandy on Saturday. The Kangaroo team has already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series. In such a situation, there will be pressure on the Sri Lankan team to win the last match. The host team has lost 5 matches in a row so far. The third T20 match is special for David Warner. He can overtake Pakistan captain Babar Azam in terms of runs in this match.
Babar Azam has scored 2686 runs in 69 innings of 74 T20 Internationals. During this he scored 1 century and 26 half-centuries. Babar Azam is the sixth batsman in the world to score the most runs in T20 Internationals. But David Warner can overtake Babar Azam in terms of runs in the third match to be played against Sri Lanka today.
David Warner has scored 2645 runs in all innings of 90 matches in T20 Internationals. Warner has scored 1 century and 22 half-centuries in T20 Internationals. He is just 42 runs behind Babar Azam breaking the record of runs. If Warner is successful in scoring 42 runs against Sri Lanka, then he will leave Babar Azam behind. With this, Warner will become the sixth batsman in the world to score the most runs in T20 Internationals.
Warner is in excellent form
David Warner is in excellent form at present. In the match against Sri Lanka on 7 June, he scored 70 runs in 44 balls. He had hit 9 fours in this innings. Warner was batting well in the second match as well. But when he was batting on 21 runs, he unfortunately got run out. Warner has scored 91 runs in the last 2 matches. This gives an idea of what kind of form he is in.
