This is only the second time in the T20 format that India have swept a series of three or more matches. Earlier in 2020, India swept the five-match T20 series against New Zealand at home. Apart from the Kiwis, India have swept the T20 series more than once against the West Indies. India swept 3-0 in India in 2018 and the same series in their home series in 2019. India have also swept the series against Australia (3-0) in 2016 and Sri Lanka (3-0) in 2017.
India won the first two matches of the T20 series against New Zealand. With this, the third T20 was irrelevant but India swept the three-match series with a huge victory in the last match as well.
