Most 50 Plus scores in Men’s T20Is

T20I cricket is definitely emerging as the most entertaining form of cricket, with its quick and nail-biting encounters. T20Is often witness players hitting big boundaries and sixes as it only consists of 20 over per side. The demand for scoring runs is always high in the shortest format. Hence, almost every batsman aims to smack maximum runs in fewer deliveries. Due to the less number of overs available, scoring a half-century or century in T20I cricket is a big achievement for any batsman. There are many players who have smashed multiple half-centuries in this format, while also slamming many quickfire knocks. In this article, we take a glance on top 5 50 Plus Scores in Men’s T20Is.

5. Martin Guptill- 22

The fifth spot on the list is sealed by the dashing opener from New Zealand, Martin Guptill. After Brendon McCullum, the right-hander Guptill has one of the few players from New Zealand cricket history who can time the ball with complete elegance. From classical cover drives to perfect straight drives, Guptill on his day has been the most destructive hitter of the ball against any pace attack.

The opening batsman has slammed 22 50-plus knocks in T20I cricket. Out of these 22 knocks, 20 were half-centuries while 2 were centuries. With 3299 runs in 108 T20I innings, Guptill is currently the highest run-getter in the T20 internationals.

4. David Warner- 22

The flamboyant opener from Australia David Warner remains one of the most destructive batsmen in the shortest format of the game of history. People don’t know Warner had made his T20 debut without any first-class game. The young acrobatic warner was more dangerous with his insane hitting versus the experience version of the southpaw. Now he has been one of the most consistent performers of the game.

The Australian opener has slammed 21 half-centuries and 1 century in his T20I career so far. In 88 innings, the left-handed batsman has slammed 2554 runs at an average of 32.74.

Though his captaincy was not good like his batting in major ICC tournaments knockouts games. Recently, Men in blue has been knocked out of the tournament from the first round of leg after being the favorites of the tournament and with that Virat has also stepped down from his captaincy stint.

With 3227 runs in 87 innings at an average of 52.04 in T20I cricket, Kohli is the 2nd highest run-getter in the quickest format.
