T20 World Cup: Scoring a fifty in a T20 game is considered an excellent effort by the batter. It happens many times that none of the batters from the whole team don’t get to fifty. The big players, on the other hand, are expected to score runs for their team. That is one of the reasons for the success of any team.
Speaking of the T20 World Cup, the pressure gets high and scoring runs at that time is more valuable. Here we will check the batsmen with the most half-centuries in the T20 World Cup. This list will include some of the best batsmen in the world. There are some big names that are leading the chart, so let’s check the batsmen with the most 50 in T20 World Cup.
3. Chris Gayle (7 Half-centuries) in 33 matches
If one needs to pick one batsman to play in T20 cricket, Chris Gayle will surely top the chart. The “Universe Boss” holds numerous records in this format and is a legend in himself. Gayle has been a part of all seven editions of the T20 World Cup and is third on the list. However, he is the only batsman with two centuries in the current ICC event.
Gayle has played 33 games and has scored 965 runs at an average of 34.46 and a strike rate of 142.75. He has also hit seven half centuries overall in the tournament. The left-hander also has the most sixes (63) and has helped West Indies win two trophies.
2. Rohit Sharma (8 Fifty) in 33 matches
The Indian skipper is also among the best in the game. Talking about the overall records in T20, Rohit has scored the most runs in this format. He has played for India in all seven editions and will now lead the team in Australia in the upcoming T20I World Cup.
Rohit has appeared in 33 matches and scored 847 runs with an average of 38.50 and a strike rate of 131.52. The Indian skipper has also scored eight half-centuries in the tournament and is one of the leading run-scorers in its history. He has hit 80 fours and 31 sixes as well, overall.
1. Virat Kohli (10 half-centuries) in 21 matches
Arguably the best batsman of the last decade, he is leading the chart here. The former Indian skipper has almost all of the batting records in the game of cricket. So it is no surprise that he has the highest number of fifties in fewer games as compared to others.
Virat has scored 21 matches and batted in 19 innings and has scored 845 runs at an incredible average of 76.81 and a strike of 129.60, respectively. He also has 10 half centuries to his name in the T20 World Cup. Virat hits half-centuries after every game. And with the upcoming season in Australia and his personal records in that country, he is expected to score more.
