Highest score in T20 International men’s Cricket as of January 2022, by Player

Highest score in T20, Pakistan captain Babar Azam became the highest run-getter for the team as he surpassed Mohammad Hafeez’s 2514 runs. While he only scored one run against Bangladesh in the second Twenty20I, it was enough to surpass Professor Mohammad Hafeez. He hasn’t looked back for the star batter since he made his debut in 2016, as he recorded his second landmark in his illustrious career.

The highest score in T20 is Martin Guptill

According to the ICC’s list of T20I run-scorers, Martin Guptill is the top run-scorer (3299) overall in T20Is. In T20Is, Martin is also the first to hit the most maximums (165). Since the retirement of another dashing opener, Nathan Astle, Guptill has been a vital cog in the limited-overs setup for New Zealand.

The next two top cricketers on this list are India’s mainstay batsmen, Virat Kohli (3277) and Rohit Sharma (3197). Among the top 10 batters, Virat Kohli has the best average (52.04), while Rohit Sharma has hit the second most sixes (150 behind Martin Guptill in T20Is). Aaron Finch is ranked fourth on the list (2608), and Irish opener Paul Stirling is ranked fifth with 2570 runs.

In the recently-concluded 2021 T20 World Cup, David Warner, Australia’s southpaw opener, won the Player of the Tournament award and had the second-most runs (289) with 2554. Pakistan’s champion batter Babar Azam holds the seventh position. Mohammad Hafeez, his countryman, is ranked eighth.

In Twenty20 Internationals, Pakistan captain Babar Azam became the highest run-getter for the team as he surpassed Mohammad Hafeez’s 2514 runs. While he only scored one run against Bangladesh in the second Twenty20I, it was enough to surpass Professor Mohammad Hafeez. He hasn’t looked back for the star batter since he made his debut in 2016, as he recorded his second landmark in his illustrious career.

On the list of the highest run-scorers in 20-20 internationals, Azam ranks seventh. Babar Azam has gone from strength to strength in the shortest international format, scoring the most runs (303) in the recently concluded T20 World Cup 2021. The most runs he scored in T20Is in 2021 are only behind his teammate Mohammad Rizwan. Initially, many doubted his ability to perform well in T20I, but he improved his game and proved them wrong. He has shown that T20 is not always about power-hitting, just like the Kiwis talisman Kane Williamson.

Pakistan’s Shoaib Malik occupies the penultimate spot in the list, having scored 2435 runs in T20Is. Eoin Morgan, England’s 50-over World Cup-winning skipper and one of their hardest hitters, concludes the list with 2428 runs in the format. Over the years, these ten batters have been integral parts of their respective teams in the T20 format, and they hope to continue doing so until they hang up their boots.
