The upcoming ICC T20 World Cup can witness the record for most fours being broken. Mahela Jayawardene the former Sri Lankan batter has hit the most fours in T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli who will be a vital part of team India in the upcoming T20 World Cup is second on the list with 103 fours registered to his name. The third and fourth spot is occupied by Indian captain Rohit Sharma and Australian opening batter David Warner having hit 91 and 86 fours so far respectively. 

Fastest Hundred (In terms of Balls Played)

The record for the fastest hundred in the T20 World Cup which is currently registered in Chris Gayle’s name with the left-hander hitting centuries in 47 and 50 balls respectively in previous World Cup editions is under threat of getting broken in the upcoming T20 World Cup. One of the reasons why the record is under threat is the changed nature of batting in T20 Cricket. With batters looking to hit every ball over the boundary the possibility of the said record getting smashed in the beginning of the tournament itself is enormous.

Most Catches by a Fielder

The former South African batter AB de Villiers holds the record for taking the most catches in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup having taken 23 catches. Australian batter David Warner grabs the second spot in the list with 21 catches for the 2021 World Cup champions and will look to surpass de Villiers in the upcoming edition of the T20 tournament.

Most Runs in a single edition of the tournament

The record for the most runs in a single edition of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup can also be well and truly broken the reason being the increased length of the tournament. With 20 teams participating in the tournament batters will get more opportunities to score runs which makes the chances of the said record getting bamboozled turn into reality which can also result in run-fest something people have become habitual of in the recent past.
