T20I is by far the most entertaining format among the three formats we have. It promises to keep the audiences cheering for their favourite team or player irrespective of the situation. This is due to the number of fours and sixes hit by hard-hitting batsmen.

Of late, we have seen relatively bigger scores in the shortest format of the game. Gone are those days where teams adopted a conservative approach and save wickets. Every international team now has at least one destructive batsman if not more.

Take our current era itself, we have so many destructive T20I players who are still active. They have the capability to win matches on their own. Today we shall be ranking-

Pollard is one of the cleanest strikers of the ball. His hitting abilities are so good that even his mistimed shots go out of the stadium. The current captain of West Indies has always been among the explosive players.

Pollard is a veteran in this format of the game and has played 81 games. He has scored 1278 runs at an average and strike rate of 24.11 and 136.83 respectively. This includes 85 sixes overall.

The West Indies skipper once even hit six sixes in an over. With the T20 WC approaching, all eyes will be on Pollard to see if he can come well in the ICC event. Taking Pollard’s talent into consideration, it shouldn’t be a surprise if he does manage to do so.
