Ahead of the 3-match T20I series between India and Australia, let's take a look at the top 5 highest individual scores in IND vs AUS T20Is. 

#5. Virat Kohli (85)

The former Indian captain likes the Australian team in the opposition as he has registered the most runs in T20Is against Australia amongst all the batters in the world. In the 3rd T20I between India and Australia in Sydney, played in 2020, India were chasing a target of 187 runs in 20 overs. As the other batters failed, Virat held his end as he smacked 85 runs off 61 balls with 4 fours & 3 sixes. However, none of the other batters crossed the 30-run mark as India lost the match by 12 runs. 

#4. Aaron Finch (89)

Australian T20I skipper Aaron Finch ranks 4th on this list, with his knock of 89 runs in the only T20I in 2013 at Rajkot. Batting first, opener Aaron Finch scored 89 runs off 52 balls and powered Australia to 201/7 in 20 overs. However, the target was chased down by team India in 19.4 overs, courtesy of Yuvraj Singh's unbeaten 77 runs off 35 balls, taking his team to a 6-wicket win. 

#3. Virat Kohli (90*)

In the 1st T20I at Adelaide on January 26th, 2016, India were put in to bat first by the Kangaroos. Virat Kohli remained not out as he smashed 90 runs off 55 balls with 9 fours & 2 sixes as India posted 188/3 in 20 overs. Indian bowlers then went on to display a good performance as Jasprit Bumrah registered 3/23 and restricted Australia to 151 in 19.3 overs, winning the match by 37 runs. 

#2. Glenn Maxwell (113*)

Australia's swashbuckling batter Glenn Maxwell ranks second on this list with his knock against India in the 2nd T20I at Bangalore in 2019. Chasing a target of 191, Australia lost their first two wickets in the first 4 overs with just 22 runs on the board. However, Glenn Maxwell, batting at #4, smacked an unbeaten 113 runs off 55 balls with 7 fours & 9 sixes to steer Australia to a 7-wicket win in 19.4 overs.
