IND v AUS 2020: How many times have India completed a T20I series whitewash?

A jubilant Indian team after beating Australia in the second T20I by 6 wickets

After a below-par performance in the ODI series, India sealed the 3-match T20I series against Australia by winning the second game by 6 wickets at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Sunday (December 6).

Virat Kohli’s side won the opening T20I by 11 runs in Canberra, with the final match of the white-ball leg scheduled at the SCG on Tuesday (December 8).

India are on a 11-match unbeaten run and a 9-match winning streak in the shortest format. Their last defeat came on December 8, 2019 against the West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram. India have now won five consecutive T20I series, and a win on Tuesday will push India’s match-winning streak into double figures.

India have played 18 bilateral 3-match T20I series till date, and they have ended up on the winning side in 14 of those. Their only 5-match affair came in New Zealand earlier this year, where Virat Kohli’s side registered their biggest margin of a series victory by whitewashing the hosts.

India have clean swept a T20I series (minimum 3 matches) five times. Interestingly, their such victory came in Sydney when India whitewashed Australia 3-0 on their 2015-16 tour Down Under. The number is all set to extend to six when they take the field at the same venue on Tuesday.

We now take a look at the five 3-match bilateral series India have whitewashed till now (chronologically).
