Runs in T20 are always coming.
T20 is the hottest format in cricket nowadays for its never-fading entertainment and edge-of-the-seat climaxes.
It provides a different wavelength to the game as even the fans with less cricket knowledge can still hook into the game for its short & crispy nature.

Some players even play more of this format than the longer formats. We have T20 specialists now who travel around the world to play just the domestic leagues.
