India and Bangladesh are set to face each other in the first T20I at Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi on Sunday (November 3). India have a great T20I record against Bangladesh, winning all the 8 matches they played against their Asian rival. The T20I series, which consists of three matches, will witness Rohit Sharma leading the India side instead of Virat Kohli. Kohli has been given rest in the T20I series. Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the leading run-scorers for India in T20I cricket so far.  As the countdown to India vs Bangladesh 2019 T20I series begins, we will look at the leading run-scorers and leading wicket-takers for India in T20I cricket so far.

When talking about the batsmen, Indian skipper Virat Kohli leads the way as he is also the leading run-scorer in the world in T20Is. Rohit Sharma is quite close to Kohli with just seven runs behind. Interestingly, Suresh Raina is also part of the list in spite of being out of Team India over a long time. Below are the top five run-scorers for India in T20Is.  India vs Bangladesh Head-to-Head Record: Ahead of T20I 2019 Series, Here Are Match Results of All IND vs BAN Twenty20 Encounters!
