Introduction

The Test cricket format is very long and boring for new viewers, thus the introduction of limited overs cricket matches was made, starting with One Day Internationals or ODI. However, the format that has actually made cricket largely famous across major regions of the world and attracted a wide range of new audiences is the Twenty20 or T20 format. It is a limited overs format, which can be defined as the shorter version of ODI, with a maximum limit of 20 overs per side. This was initially introduced back in 2003 and is now one of the most popular formats in all of cricket. Throughout the years, many players have made their impact on the sport in the T20 format and we will be taking a look at the top 10 players with the most runs in Twenty20 internationals of all time. This list focuses on the T20I table and is up to date with July 2022 statistics.
