The T20 format has favored the top-order batsman a lot more and it is important that the batsmen catch hold of their good form and make it big in the calendar year. To be honest, it has been a nightmare for the bowlers in the shorter format with the batsmen making it count each and every time.
The entertainment factor will always be a big plus and the crowds love watching those consistencies from the big names in the T20 formats. With the T20 Worldcup coming up in October in the UAE, let us look at six batsmen with the most T20I runs in a calendar year.
Batsmen With The Most T20I Runs In A Calendar Year:
Virat Kohli – 2016
There is hardly a list not featuring a batsman like Virat Kohli, and he is sixth on the batsmen with the most T20I runs in a calendar year. Kohli had an extraordinary year in 2016 with the T20 format as he amassed 641 runs in the year with most of them coming in the T20 Worldcup as well.
Kohli is the epitome of consistency and he averages nearly 50 in the T20 international format which speaks volumes of his abilities with the bat. He will be looking to continue his dominance in the upcoming T20 World cup as well.
