Top 5 T20I run-scorers in 2017

A decade after the first ever experimental T20 World cup, T20 International matches are now the parts of full-fledged series. The shortest format of the game has more excitement than other forms and a player needs special talent to make this format his own.

So while entering the New Year, let’s have a look at the top 5 T20I run-scorers in 2017.

5.) Virat Kohli – 299 runs

Virat Kohli T20I

The Indian skipper is the only player in the world who made his appearance in the most runs list in every format of the game. Virat scored 299 runs in 10 innings with an average of more than 37, though this is an impressive performance, still, it is less than Afghanistan’s Mohammad Shahzad. There is no doubt of him ranking even higher in the list if he had played in the last T20I series against Sri Lanka.

Afghanistan’s prime batsman Mohammad Shahzad joined Indian skipper Virat Kohli for the fourth position in the highest run-getters list in T20I last year. Shahzad scored 299 runs with the astonishing average of 49.83 in just 7 innings. Afghanistan is one of the most evolved teams of 2017 and Shahzad played an important role in it.
