Description

T20 is the most beloved format of cricket at the moment. The exceptional and powerful hitting with clever piece of bowling had made this version famous in a span of short time. The T20 World Cup has started in Bangladesh and the world is expecting closely fought matches. Let’s take a closer look at the top five leading run getters in the show piece event.
Mahela Jayawardene, Sri Lanka
The Lankan maestro has announced the current edition of the T20 World Cup will be his last as he is not going to play slam bang format after this. He has accumulated 858 runs in 25 matches at an average of almost 41, which is phenomenal. He has scored five fifties in the T20 World Cups, which is second highest in the history of this format. The right hand batsman has hit 91 fours, which is the highest while his 22 sixes, is fourth in the list.
Chris Gayle, West Indies
He is the most dangerous T20 batsman across the globe. The tall West Indian is known for his brutal hitting. The left hand batsman has scored 664 runs from just 18 games at an exceptional average of more than 44. His strike rate is over 150, which is breathtaking. He has more sixes (43) and fifties (6) to his name in the T20 World Cups.
Tillakaratne Dilshan, Sri Lanka
Dilshan could miss out on the T20 World Cup as he has not fully recovered from a finger injury he sustained during the ODI series against Bangladesh. The former Lankan captain is also struggling for form but is a devastating player in the shortest format. The clean striker of the ball has scored 632 runs in 25 matches at an average of 30.
Kumar Sangakkara, Sri Lanka
He is the third Sri Lankan in the top four, which shows that Lankans prefer this format a lot. The good news is that he is in tremendous touch and could be Lanka’s trump card in the T20 World Cup. The left hand batsman has added 590 runs in 25 matches and also has 75 fours to his name.
Brendon McCullum, New Zealand
Kevin Pietersen was in the fifth place but he is no more part of the international setup so it was useless to include his name. The New Zealand captain is the right candidate to take Pietersen’s slot in the leading run getters list. He has been a part of all the editions of the T20 World Cups and has managed 552 runs in 21 matches.
