With the ICC T20 World Cup approaching in October this year, fans are gearing up for the high-octane T20 action. T20, in general, is understood to batsmen game. With the thick bats in play, flat pitches and the short boundaries, bowlers have a tough task to contain the batsmen. Batsmen are supposed to score big runs in the T20s as fans want to see balls flying to the boundaries. While we are still early in the year, let’s take a look at the batsmen who could emerge as the leading run-scorer in the T20Is in 2020.
We are only including the players from the associate nations in this fantasy cricket prediction.
Virat Kohli – Indian skipper is leading the batting charts in every format in the last few years. Virat Kohli was the leading run-scorer in the T20Is in 2019 and it would be tough to bet against him in 2020 also.
Rohit Sharma – The Hitman has been in some kind of form in the past couple of years. He has been scoring the truckload of runs and looks in no mood to slow down. He was the 2nd highest run-getter in the T20Is in 2019 and he would look to go one better to top the charts this year.
KL Rahul – The right-handed batsman from Karnataka is leading the batting charts in the T20Is in 2020. He has scored 323 runs in 8 T20 games this season. The kind of form KL Rahul has been in, it would be a no surprise he ends up as the top-scorer this year.
Quinton de Kock – The new South African captain has looked in a great touch so far this year. He seems to bat with the responsibility at the top and compile big scores. He has scored 208 runs in 6 T20I games so far and he could end up as the leading run-scorer in 2020.
Babar Azam – The right-handed batsman is a treat to watch when batting in full flow. He is one of the most consistent batsmen in the world and one of very few to average more than 50 in the T20I cricket. If Azam can continue his rich vein of form then he could emerge as the leading batsman in the T20I in 2020.
Aaron Finch: Finch is one of the most prolific T20 openers in the world at the moment. He had a decent 2019 in terms of T20I runs as Australia played only 8 games last year. However, Australia have already played 3 T20Is this year and Australian skipper has amassed 111 runs in those games.
David Warner: Warner has started 2020 in a good manner as the Southpaw has scored 128 runs in just 3 T20I games so far this year. Warner is looking more hungry to score runs than ever and by the time of the conclusion of this year he may end up as the leading run-scorer in T20Is in 2020.
After analysing the form and consistency for every above-mentioned player, the Fantasy Cricket Prediction is that Rohit Sharma will emerge as the leading run-scorer in T20Is in 2020.
