Want to be a professional cricketer?
While T20 cricket is a faster game, the team management prefers these batsmen more who can maintain at least 100+ strike-rate for most of the times. In the 2016 T20 World Cup (officially known as the ICC World T20 2016), we experienced some good firing batting with the higher strike-rates.
During the 2016 T20 World Cup, some batsmen even managed to achieve the strike-rate of 200+, even maintained the 250+ strike-rates till the end.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen with the highest strike-rate in an innings in the 2016 T20 World Cup (at least scored 25 runs in an innings)
Mohammad Shahzad (Afghanistan) – 231.57 (against South Africa at Mumbai on 20th March 2016)
It was the 20th match of the 2016 T20 World Cup (in the Super 10 Stage). Chasing down the 210 runs target, which was set up by South Africa, Afghanistan opener Mohammad Shahzad inspired the team for the strong fight back with his aggressive batting.
The right-handed batsman scored 44 runs off just 19 balls with the strike-rate of 231.57. Before getting out, Shahzad hit 3 fours and 5 sixes. However, Afghanistan failed to chase that big target as they were bowled out for 172 runs (20 overs).
