Being a T20 captain is a tough job for any player. Since T20 games only consist of 20 overs per side, batsmen have to score runs at the best strike rate possible while bowlers have only 4 maximum overs each to come up with their best bowling show. As a result, a captain has to make the best decisions in the batting and fielding department to win a T20 match. This also results in close competition between the teams during T20 games.
Over the years, the craze of T20 cricket has reached sky-high among fans. Due to this, many franchise T20 leagues in many countries have gained wide popularity. Indian Premier League, Caribbean Premier League, Big Bash League, Afghanistan Premier League, Bangladesh Premier League, and Pakistan Super League are popular T20 leagues played every year around the world.
Along with international T20I bilateral series and ICC T20I tournaments, these T20 leagues also attract a lot of viewership. Here we take a look at the 4 players with the most wins as T20 captain.
