Cricket’s most widely played format, T20, is practised almost everywhere in the world. People find it simpler to support this format than ODI or Test cricket because it is shorter and packs more action and punches than the longer versions.

As a result, more and more nations in Europe, North America, and the Middle East are taking an active role in cricket thanks to the T20 format. The sport will only continue to grow with time and exposure because there is so much potential.

Therefore, it isn’t surprising to see that the majority of the names on the list of the top 10 players with the highest strike rate in T20 are from these affiliated nations.


Top Players

Suryakumar Ashok Yadav

Suryakumar Ashok Yadav, an Indian limited-overs cricket player, born on September 14, 1990, competes internationally. In domestic cricket in India, he competes for both Mumbai Indians and Mumbai cricket team. In the modern era of cricket, he is regarded as one of the best and most destructive white-ball players.

Suryakumar Yadav is rated as the best batsman in the world for Twenty20 matches as of November 1, 2022.

Glenn Maxwell 

Maxwell had a fantastic World Cup in 2015, contributing to Australia’s success in winning the tournament. In his six innings of batting, he scored three times in excess of fifty runs, including a century that broke the record. His overall rate of scoring contributed to the high impact of his knocks. Maxwell proved to be an enviable asset when his helpful off spin and exceptional fielding ability were added. With his international career experiencing ups and downs, a lot has changed for him in the last four years. Maxwell, however, has rediscovered his form and confidence just before the World Cup, as it did in 2015, and those are concerning indications of the opposition.

Bangalore scored 211/3 thanks to Kohli’s 113 off 50 balls and Chris Gayle’s 32-ball 73. In his fifth Indian Twenty20 game, he hit 12 boundaries and 8 sixes.

He was born in South Africa and, at the age of five, immigrated to New Zealand with his family. He developed through the Auckland cricket system. Before participating in the 2016 Under-19 World Cup, he made his List A debut at the age of 18.

After Martin Guptill suffered an injury, he was added to the New Zealand T20 squad to play South Africa in February 2017.
