By Hitesh Jain on Nov 3, 2021

Making runs by the batsman is the crucial part of cricket and it gets difficult in T20I because batsmen get only 20 overs to score. So, it becomes important for a batsman to hit the ball hard but also rotate the strike and build up a long partnership. Batsmen need to keep the wicket safe and make runs while maintaining the appropriate run rate in T20. Also, a batsman has to follow the same thing while chasing the target.

For the Indian team, there are batsmen who have even crossed even the 2500 runs mark in T20 internationals.
