T20 cricket has evolved at a rapid pace, requiring new skills from both batsmen and bowlers. Batsmen are expected to score at a high pace these days, and big-hitting skill is valued.
T20I cricket has grown in popularity as one of the most popular formats of the game. The popularity of this format is growing by the day. T20 cricket, according to some fans and experts, has the potential to become as popular as football if properly promoted. T20 competitions are now being played in several places of the world.
1. Stephen Fleming
As the coach of the Chennai Super Kings, Stephen Fleming has built a name for himself. He was a top hitter for the Blackcaps squad throughout his playing days. Fleming scored 110 runs in five T20I appearances for New Zealand. In his T20I career, Fleming struck 20 fours but never a six.
2. Andrew Strauss
Andrew Strauss, a former England captain, was regarded as one of the best batsmen of his generation. The left-handed batsman was born in South Africa and played for England. Strauss only appeared in four Twenty20 Internationals for England. He hit nine fours and no sixes in the four games, averaging 18.25 runs per game.
3. Ambati Rayudu
In the Indian Premier League, Ambati Rayudu is one of the best batsmen. He did not, however, enjoy a long T20I career with India’s cricket side. Rayudu only got to play six T20I matches, scoring 42 runs in five innings. Despite hitting five fours, the right-handed batsman was unable to score a maximum.
4. Daniel Christian
Daniel Christian, an Australian all-rounder, is a bit of a surprise to find on this list. The Sydney-based player is a finisher who has yet to hit a six in a T20I match. Christian has only scored 27 runs in 16 T20I matches for his country, with a strike rate of less than 100. In his T20I career, the 38-year-old has only hit two fours and no sixes.
Imam-ul-Haq, the current Pakistani batsman, has been a frequent member of the side in ODIs. Imam has played 43 One-Day Internationals and hit 16 sixes. In the T20I format, though, he has never been able to hit a six. Only two fours have been struck by the left-handed batsman in two T20I encounters.
6. Marvan Atapattu
Marvan Atapattu is a former Sri Lankan batsman who is most known for his Test career. The right-handed batsman represented Sri Lanka in 90 Tests and 268 One-Day Internationals. He was only able to play one T20I innings for his country. He scored five runs that game.
7. Ryan McLaren
Ryan McLaren, a South African all-rounder, rose to prominence following his strong performances in the Indian Premier League. For the Punjab Kings and the Mumbai Indians, the all-rounder had a good season. In his career, he appeared in 12 T20 internationals. He, on the other hand, was never able to hit a six for the South African cricket team. In his T20I career, McLaren only scored nine runs.
8. Michael Vaughan
Michael Vaughan has recently made headlines for his divisive opinions on cricket. Michael Vaughan, like Andrew Strauss, is a former England captain. Vaughan scored 27 runs at an average of 13.50 in two T20I games for his country. In his T20I career, the right-handed batsman hit four fours and zero sixes.
