The ICC T20 world cup 2021 is scheduled to take place this year in the month of October and the countries have started playing a lot more T20s to pick the right squad for the big tournament. There have been doubts over the tournament taking place in India as the IPL 2021 was suspended recently due to the rise in the number of Covid cases in India.
However, there is still three more months time, and the situation could get better before the T20 Worldcup starts taking place. It is five years since the T20 Worldcup took place in 2016, and the West Indies side will start as the defending champions of the tournament. Here are 5 players who can end up as the highest run-scorer in the ICC T20 world cup 2021.
5 Players Who Can End Up As The Highest Run Scorer In ICC T20 World Cup 2021:
Babar Azam has been phenomenal with the bat in T20 internationals and the 26-year-old became the fastest batsman to reach 2000 T20 Internationals runs recently. He has scored 2035 runs in 54 T20 internationals so far at an average of 47.3 and a healthy strike rate of nearly 130.
Babar has become one of the top batsmen in the world and his numbers do suggest. He was appointed the captain of the side in all the formats for Pakistan recently and he deserves it too. He will be a key player for Pakistan in the T20 Worldcup and the number two batsman in ICC T20 rankings has a high probability of ending up as the highest run-scorer in the ICC T20 Worldcup 2021.
