Top 10: Highest T20I Batting Average in Australian Venues

There are multiple types of batsmen in cricket. There are good ones, bad ones, and anywhere in-between ones. It is hard to say if one is good or bad with just the numbers they produce. It depends on the quality of cricket they expose when different conditions and scenarios are put on them. Consistency matters when it comes to picking a quality batter from others.

Australia has always been a hunting ground for the home players. There have been times when Australian cricket was at its peak and never showed mercy on the traveling cricketers. This may not be the case now, but it is still one of the most demanding venues for scoring runs. The 2022 T20 World Cup is a living example of that. A milestone total of 200 has been achieved only once in the tournament. You can find out how frequently 200+ scores have been cracked in the T20 format.

Virat Kohli, one of the modern-day greats, tops the average of runs scored on Australian grounds. He has an average above 70 in T20s played in one of the toughest scoring venues in the world. This is insanity at its best! However, when the conditions become more brutal, the quality stands out.

Another Indian batter, Rohit Sharma, tops the ODI record against Australia in home and Australian conditions.

This article below will list the top cricketers with the best batting average in T20s in Australia.
