Top 10: Most Runs Away from Home in T20I

T20 is probably the only format amongst the 3 existing international formats where it is still a batsman’s game, irrespective of the conditions it will be played in. Meaning, whether the batter is batting at home or away, the surfaces around the globe favour them.

Though there could be some low-scoring games in between, the surfaces don’t aid the bowlers to the same extent as in the Tests or ODIs. At the same time, a batter at the international level should be well-equipped to handle bowlers from different countries with the help on offer across different conditions.

So we will look at how batters have fared in T20Is away from home in terms of the runs they scored, and here are the top 10 batters with the most runs away from home in the shortest format of the game.
