Top 10 Run Scorers in T20 cricket of All Time

                Cricket is one of the most followed sports in the world. The latest and shortest format of cricket is T20 which came in international scene in 2005 with the match between England and New Zealand. Since then it has come a long way and there is a world cup tournament like ODI matches for this format too which is organized by ICC in a gap of 2 years. Its following is getting wider and wider as it is completed within 3 hours having 20 over a side. Rules are same as ODI cricket and also the “Free Hit” for a no ball was originated from this format which is also used in ODI matches . Like in my earlier articles Top 10 ODI Run Scorers in World and Top 10 Test Run Scores in World we saw that the list was topped by the great Sachin Tendulkar in both format. Here we are looking at the list of top 10 batsmen who are leading run scorers in this T20 format. As this format is quite new, totally different and very fast so we are going to see the change in the to position of the list.

                     B McCullum, the explosive wicket-keeper batsman from New Zealand tops the list of top 10 run scorers in T20 with 1814 runs in 68 matches with the career strike rate of 135+. He is also the only player to score two hundreds in international T20. He also holds the record of scoring 2000 runs in the shortest cricket format apart from that he also holds the record of hitting maximun Sixes and Fours in T20 cricket in the world. He has terrific record in T20 and has variety of shots which are hugely effective in this format of the game.

All these records certainly proves that Brendon McCullum is best batsman in T20 format of the cricket. The way he is playing he is going to lead this top run scorers list for long time.

  1. True, he is the best player in international T20, but in domestic circuit Gayle is better. Isn't it ?

  2. I think, Kevin Pieterson is most dangerous batsman in the t20 format. Pieterson has wide range of shots that makes him unpredictable and quite successful in T20 cricket.

    1. Definitely Kevin Pieterson is very dangerous T20 batsman and he can definitely top this list. KP has played very few T20 matches in the comparison of Brendon McCullum who tops this list. Thanks for comment, keep visiting.

  3. Kevin Pieterson and Chris Gayle are the most destructive players in T20 format of the game. As IPL is around the corner we are going to see Kevin Pieterson in full flow to prove the decision made by ECB to sack him wrong.

    1. As Kevin is out of England duty so we are going to see him playing in full IPL season and Gayle has been immensely successful in T20 format whether it is IPL or any other tournament. Hope KP succeed as the skipper of Delhi Daredevils in IPL 7.

  4. The stats of Brendon McCullum is enough to show that he is best T20 batsman. He is only cricketer to score 2 centuries in this short format.

    1. Brendon McCullum is best T20 cricketer and the above given record justifies that. McCullum is only player in T20 cricket apart from that he holds many T20 records in his name.
