The essence of T20 cricket is smashing the ball out of boundary that causes plethora of joy to the fans. There are batsmen who can hit ball the ball better than others, and they do that more and more whenever they get going. Bowlers suffered their onslaught. Their Blitzkrieg innings are not too short, their innings are long. Nevertheless, they use to score four times more than the ball they take to score their century. It is not that they create the blood rushing moment once in their life.  To some players scoring long innings in the shortest format of the game is not difficult job. They do that often.

Here is the list of TOP 5 highest individual innings in t20 cricketincluding the international cricket:
