The most prolific batsmen and their records in international cricket's newest format

The fate of October's Twenty20 World Cup in Australia continues to hang in the balance, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Many within the sport believe it is almost inconceivable that the tournament will go ahead on schedule, with 16 nations set to take part and a variety of different lockdown requirements and travel orders to consider.

However, Australia's decision to allow crowds of up to 10,000 in sports stadiums from June has breathed life into the idea the tournament can still be staged, with the International Cricket Council (ICC) set to make a decision next month.

ICC chief executive Manu Sawhney added: "The situation surrounding the global pandemic is evolving rapidly and we want to give ourselves the best possible opportunity to make the right decision for the whole sport.

"The health and well-being of everyone involved is our priority and other considerations fall out from that.

"We will only get one chance to make this decision and it needs to be the right one and as such we will continue to consult with our members, broadcasters, partners, governments and players and to ensure that we make a well-informed decision."

As the world awaits the ICC's final decision, we are going to continue our top 10 series by looking at most prolific batsmen to have played Twenty20 International cricket.
