10 records that can be broken in T20 World Cup 2022

By

Total Runs

Former Sri Lanka captain Jayawardene is the only batter to score more than 1000 runs across multiple tournaments. Now, this record can be broken India's Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli and Australia opener David Warner

Most Centuries

Only eight batters have hit a ton in T20 World Cups and just one - Chris Gayle - has done it twice. In T20 World Cup 2022, Jos Buttler and Alex Hales are best placed to claim the record from Gayle.

Most 50s

Virat Kohli will look to extend his incredible record for 10 scores of 50 or more, which have been made in 21 matches and while only being dismissed 11 times, but Rohit Sharma (8) could yet claim this crown.

Most runs in a T20 World Cup

Virat Kohli also tops all-comers for runs scored in a single edition of the T20 World Cup and is the only batter to appear in this top-10 list twice. However, this year if Babar Azam becomes the highest scorer he will match Kohli

Most wickets

Bangladesh spinner Shakib Al Hasan will be back to extend his lead for the most wickets (41) in all T20 World Cups, with India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin (26) the closest in the count set to appear again this year.

Most wickets in a T20 World Cup

Sri Lanka spinner Wanindu Hasaranga set a new benchmark for total wickets (16) at last year's tournament. But in-form bowlers like Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan could be eyeing-off similar numbers this time

Most catches

Former South Africa stalwart AB de Villiers was as reliable in the field and holds the record for the most catches at T20 World Cups. However, Martin Guptill and David Warner are not far behind and can break his record

Most dismissals

Former India skipper MS Dhoni's record for the most dismissals by a wicketkeeper at T20 World Cups looks safe, but South Africa's Quinton de Kock and Australia's Matthew Wade will hope to rise up the ranks
