Key insights from the above stats

The above list is pretty much dominated by batters from associate nations.

New Zealand’s Mark Chapman is having a remarkable year with the bat in T20Is. He smashed his career-best score of 104* against Pakistan in April 2023.

Zeeshan Khan, the right-handed batter from Malta, is giving bowlers a tough time with his aggressive batting. Malta’s skipper, Varun Thamotharam, is also playing crucial captain’s knocks to contribute to their team’s victory.

India’s charismatic batsman, Suryakumar Yadav, is leaving no stone unturned to make his mark in the shortest format. His average is over 50, and his strike rate is over 150.

Shubman Gill, since making his T20I debut earlier this year, has shown promise with his 126* against New Zealand in Ahmedabad. And it seems Ahmedabad is his favourite ground, as whenever he plays there, he scores big runs across formats.

Gill is also leading the chart for most centuries in 2023 across formats.

Romania’s Ramesh Satheesan is the only batsman to be stranded on 99* in 2023. He missed his much-deserving century against Malta in August 2023.
