T20 World Cup Most Runs 2024

T20 World Cup Most Runs 2024: Afghanistan's Rahmanullah Gurbaz is leading the 2024 T20 World Cup run charts with 167 runs in three innings followed by Aaron Jones of the USA with 141 runs off three matches.


This T20 World Cup has not been a high-scoring one with pitches on the slower side with variable bounce and shot making has not been easy. In third position is Australia's David Warner with 115 runs. In the fourth and fifth positions are Ibrahim Zadran of Afghanistan and Andries Gous of the USA with 114 and 102 runs respectively.


The ICC Men's T20 World Cup started in 2007 and since then six editions of the tournament have gone by, and it is India's Virat Kohli who tops the tally of batters to have scored the most runs in T20 World Cup history so far. Kohli has scored 1141 runs in 27 matches at an average of 81.50, which also includes 14 fifties at a strike-rate over 130. His highest score in the tournament is 89 not out, which he scored in the 2016 edition of the T20 World Cup. The former India captain also holds the record for most runs in a single edition of the T20 World Cup. The 2014 edition of the tournament saw him scoring 319 runs in six matches and included four half-centuries.


In the T20 World Cup most runs tally, Mahela Jayawardene comes second, after having featured in five editions of the ICC event. The former Sri Lanka captain has scored 1,016 runs in 31 matches at an average of 39.07 and a strike rate of 134.74. He too was the highest run-scorer in the 2010 T20 World Cup, played at the West Indies, where he scored 302 runs in six matches at an average of 60.40 and having a strike rate of 159.78. In the same edition, Jayawardene became the first Sri Lankan to slam a hundred in the T20 World Cup. Moreover, he was a key member when Sri Lanka won the 2014 T20 World Cup in Bangladesh.


Moving down the list, there is the explosive West Indian opener, Chris Gayle, occupying the third position. Gayle has showcased his batting prowess by accumulating 965 runs in 33 matches, maintaining an average of 34.46 and an impressive strike rate of 142.75.


Completing the top five list for the most runs in the T20 World Cup are India's current team captain, Rohit Sharma, and Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan. Sharma has amassed 963 runs from 39 matches, while Dilshan has scored 897 runs from 35 matches.


Now let's take a look at batters who have dominated each edition of the T20 World Cup with their brilliant display of strokeplay and power-hitting. Their prolific batting gave them the distinction to engrave their names in the record books of the T20 World Cup.


2007: Matthew Hayden


Matthew Hayden, the former Australian left-handed opening batsman, emerged as the top scorer in the inaugural ICC T20 World Cup held in South Africa. Hayden's powerful batting display saw him accumulate 265 runs in six matches at an impressive average of 88.33 and a formidable strike rate of 144.80. Notching up four fifties during the tournament, Hayden's efforts propelled Australia into the semifinals, where they were defeated by eventual champions India.


2009: Tillakaratne Dilshan


Tillakaratne Dilshan showcased his batting prowess in the 2009 ICC T20 World Cup in England, emerging as the highest run-getter of the tournament. Opening the innings for Sri Lanka, Dilshan amassed 317 runs in seven matches at an average of 52.83 and a strike rate of 144.74. His contributions were instrumental in guiding Sri Lanka to the final, although they faced defeat against Pakistan in the summit clash at Lord’s.


2012: Shane Watson


Shane Watson, the former Australian opener, dominated the 2012 ICC T20 World Cup in Sri Lanka with his exceptional batting performances. Watson finished as the top run-scorer of the tournament, surpassing Mahela Jayawardene by six runs. Accumulating 249 runs in six matches at a strike rate of 150 and an average of 49.80, Watson played a crucial role despite Australia's elimination in the semifinals by eventual champions West Indies.


2014: Virat Kohli


Virat Kohli, the star batsman of the Indian cricket team, left an indelible mark in the 2014 ICC T20 World Cup held in Bangladesh. Kohli's staggering form saw him score 319 runs in six matches at an astounding average of 106.33 and a formidable strike rate of 129.14. His remarkable performance included four half-centuries, although India faced a heartbreaking loss to Sri Lanka in the final.


2016: Tamim Iqbal


Bangladesh's dynamic opener Tamim Iqbal emerged as the top scorer in the 2016 ICC T20 World Cup held in India. Tamim's explosive batting style propelled him to accumulate 295 runs in six matches at an average of 73.75 and a striking rate of 142.51. Despite his individual brilliance, Bangladesh failed to progress beyond the Super 10s stage of the tournament.


2021: Babar Azam


In the 2021 ICC T20 World Cup held in the UAE and Oman, Pakistan captain Babar Azam showcased his batting ability to finish as the highest run-getter. Azam amassed 303 runs in six matches at an impressive average of 60.60 and a strike rate of 126.25. Registering four half-centuries, Azam played a pivotal role in Pakistan's campaign in the tournament.


2022: Virat Kohli


Former India captain Virat Kohli continued his dominance in the ICC T20 World Cup, finishing as the top run-scorer in the 2022 edition. Kohli's brilliant batting display saw him accumulate 296 runs in six games at a remarkable average of 98.66 and a strike rate of 136.40. His four fifties in the tournament further solidified his position as one of the premier batsmen in the T20 format.
