In the current scenario, most cricket fans love to watch the T20 format. The fact that there’s a lot hard-hitting in T20Is makes it a lot more interesting than ODIs and Tests. Also, the match can change its course very quickly in this format, one moment your team is winning, and a couple of overs later they could very well lose the game.

All these thrills make the shortest format of the sport, a fan favourite. This is why there are T20 leagues booming across the whole globe. Since in inception of T20, batsmen have become more fearless, as scoring runs is imperative in this format.

This fearless approach, in turn, reflects on their game in other formats as well. However, there are some Indian batsmen who have played more than 30 T20 games and have failed to score a single half-century.

Here, is a list of the three Indian batsmen who haven’t scored 50 runs even once in International T20 games:

Widely renowned as a hard-hitting middle-order batsman, Hardik Pandya features on this list, despite his exploits with Mumbai Indians (MI) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

He belongs to a rare breed of explosive Indian batsmen, while he has helped team India finish off many games, the 26-year-old hasn’t scored a single half-century for the national team in international T20 matches. Hardik made his debut in the shortest format against Australia in 2016.

Since then, the right-handed all-rounder has amassed 40 caps in which he has scored 310 runs, at an average of 16.31. Moreover, another surprising fact is that Hardik’s highest score in T2o is 33*. Currently, he’s out injured and should be back for team India ahead of the T20 World Cup 2020, to be held in Australia from October.
