T20 World Cup leading run scorers: Top batter standings


Originally due to be staged in India, the tournament has been moved to the Middle East because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of the planet’s top batsman have been acclimasting to conditions at the Indian Premier League, also moved to the UAE, and it is no surprise that India boast many of the leading contenders to be the tournament’s top run scorer, including Virat Kohli, who scored the second-most runs at the last T20 World Cup five years ago and will step down as captain at the end of the competition.

England, however, are not short of batting power themselves, with a destructive lineup that includes the likes of Jos Buttler, Jason Roy, Jonny Bairstow and the world’s No1 ranked T20 player Dawid Malan.
