Centuries in T20Is are a very big thing. You only have 2 overs for the whole team to bat and if you make an individual century in that, you deserve every bit of applauds and adulation that you receive. More so, if you are the captain of the team and score the century or even top score for your team in the innings, you are leading from the front.
Here are 10 such captains with highest individual scores in T20Is.
10. Graeme Smith (South Africa) – 88 vs. England, 2009, Centurion
Second match of the T20 series and Africa chose to bat first on a placid Centurion pitch. This innings saw one of the highest partnerships in T20I, when Graeme Smith and Loots Bosman added 170 runs together.
Smith scored 88 off 44 balls and Bosman made a career best 94 off 45 balls with 9 sixes. De Villiers scored 24 off 13 to help South Africa reach a humongous 241/6 in 20 overs. England’s batting line up was no match for chasing such a big total and managed to score 157/8 with Jonathan Trott making 51.
South Africa won by 84 runs and Smith led from the front to take them to victory.
