Australia opener Usman Khawaja breaks Kane Williamson, AB de Villiers’ ODI record against India

Australian opening batsman Usman Khawaja continued his fine form with the bat in the one-day international series against India, scoring a century in the fifth ODI at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi on Wednesday.

Khawaja was dismissed for 100 by Bhuvneshwar Kumar but not before he broke Kane Williamson’s record of most runs in a five-match ODI series against India and AB de Villiers’ record of most runs in a five-match ODI series against India in India. He also equalled Chris Gayle’s 17-year-old record of four or more fifty-plus scores against India in an ODI series.


Khawaja finished with 383 runs (50, 38, 104, 91, 100), including two centuries and as many half-centuries, in the five-match bilateral ODI series against India in India. In doing so, he broke AB’s record of 353 runs in 2015, which was the previous record. He also broke Williamson’s record of 361 against India in New Zealand in 2014.
