The ICC T20 WC starts from 17th October and will go on till 14th November this year in the UAE. It is being held after 5 years & the fans all across the world can’t wait for the tournament to start.

It is great for cricketers playing the IPL as its 2nd phase is being held just before the T20 in UAE itself. They can’t hope for a better platform to showcase their talent to the cricketing world.

T20 is known to be a batsman’s game due to the big bats, shorter boundaries which in turn leads to less margin of error for the bowlers. For a team to win the T20 WC, there need to be 1-2 in-form batsmen who can smash any bowling attack consistently & score big runs for their team. So, let’s look at-

10 players who can score big numbers in T20 WC 2021

Let’s start our list with the no 1 ranked T20I batsman in the world for about a year or so, Dawid Malan. He has scored 1091 runs in 28 matches at an average of 45.46 & a strike rate of just over 142.

These stats clearly indicate his dominance in T20Is at the moment. However, there is criticism regarding the fact that he can’t hit spinners for sixes in the middle overs which is the type of bowling he is most likely to face.

But the 33-year-old batsman has enough experience to tackle this criticism & prove his point. Also, due to the abundance of match-winners in the English batting line-up, Malan might play with a carefree mind & express himself to the best of his abilities & help England win their 2nd T20 WC.
