The T20 cricket has revolutionized the way cricket is played all over the world. With the advent of T20 cricket not only has commercialized the sport and made it accessible for new nations but has made it more fast-paced and exciting. The shorter the game is the more dynamic it gets which prompts the batter to innovate and make the game more exciting.

T20s has not only made cricket more popular but also has changed the psychology of fans and cricketers. Earlier the metrics of performance for a batter used to be averages or milestones such as half-centuries and centuries but T20s have shifted the focus from them to strike rates and impact of a batter on a match.

In modern-day teams look for those batters who can play at higher strike rates and can change the course of the match on its head rather than those with higher batting averages.

In this article, let’s find out those batters who have scored the most runs in T20 cricket without a century to their name:
