5 Batters Highest Runs: The World T20 is back, after a more than 5-year wait! Here are the top 5 batters who can score most number of runs in the tournament.
The ICC World T20 2021 starts this Sunday, the 17th of October! The world event of the shortest format of the game will be returning after a gap of more than 5 years!
As it returns, here’s a look at the top 5 batters who can score the highest runs in the ICC World T20:
#5 – Virat Kohli
India skipper Virat Kohli has a phenomenal record at the T20 World Cups. In the last edition that took place in 2016, he scored 273 runs in 5 innings at a jaw-dropping average of 136.50!
In his final stint as India’s T20 captain, he will look to bring this form once again and become the highest run-scorer in this edition!
#4 – KL Rahul
Another Indian batting talent KL Rahul is probably one of the best batters in the world when it comes to the shortest format!
This is his first T20 WC, but in T20Is, he already has amassed 1,557 runs in 48 games at a strike-rate of 142.19 and an average touching 40.
He has also been in sublime touch in the two IPLs that have happened in the UAE in this year and the last one. All this makes him a frontrunner to end up as the highest run-getter in the tournament!
#3 – Jos Buttler
The English wicketkeeper-bat has had a very good record himself, as far as T20Is are concerned. In 74 innings, he has scored 1,871 runs at a strike-rate of 139.84.
England are huge favourites to win the World Cup, and if Buttler scores the most runs in the tournament, they can become T20 World Champions again!
#2 – Chris Gayle
The most prolific T20 batter of all time still has gas left in the tank. He has a whopping 11,758 runs to his name in all T20 cricket!
Can he become the highest scorer in this World Cup as well? He’s definitely a contender!
#1 – Dawid Malan
The No.1-ranked T20 batsman in the world has been an epitome of consistency ever since he’s arrived in the T20 arena!
He has amassed 1,123 runs in just 30 innings at an average of 43.19 and a strike-rate of 139.33!
If he brings this consistency to the World Cup, he will most certainly end up being the highest run-getter of this tournament!
These are, therefore, the 5 batters who can score the highest runs in T20 World Cup!
