T20 World Cup: Highest Individual Score by a Player

T20 World Cup has given space for many records to be formed. Know about the highest individual scored by players in the matches.

The T20 World Cup leaves a very small room for error for the cricketers. The Batters try their best to score as many runs as possible. 20 overs are given to the batsmen, and they must use them to their fullest capacity. The records are made because of this very reason. The batsmen are aware that the number of balls is very less that are given to them. In order to give some chance to the team to win the match, they must score the maximum runs if they get the first chance to bat. The team that is responsible for chasing the target should also work hard towards accumulating the maximum number of runs.

The following are the statistics that showcase the highest individual scores by a player:

1. Brendon McCullum – Scored 123 in 58 Balls against Bangladesh in 2012
