One can easily say 2021 has been the year of T20s in terms of cricket.

Even though we have had the World Test Championship finals and few important bilateral Test series this year, it is the shortest format that made sure we don’t miss cricket even in this troubling period. We also saw few ODI fixtures converted to T20s, thanks to the prestigious T20 World Cup held in UAE. The last tournament of the same kind was 5 years back, which added more expectations.

The Pakistani openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam leads the chart. The duo exhibited top quality cricket throughout the year.

Virat Kohli is the most runs by an Indian batsman in T20Is in 2021 – 299 Runs in 8 innings he played this year.

Below is the list of players who scored the most runs in T20 Internationals in the year 2021:
