Indian captain Virat Kohli and Pakistan limited-overs captain Babar Azam are known as the most consistent performers with the bat in every international format. Both these right-handed batsmen are not only dominating in the Test and ODI formats, but they also have maintained the same image in the T20I cricket.
The leading T20I run-scorer Kohli’s T20I batting average is 50.80. On the other hand, the no.1-ranked T20I batsman Babar Azam’s T20I batting average is 50.72.
Here we are talking about the top five batsmen who have better T20I average than Virat Kohli and Babar Azam (Considering among the maximum number of innings played)
Hiren Varaiya (Kenya) – average 51.00
Indian-born Kenyan cricketer Hiren Varaiya’s main role was to serve as a left-arm spinner as the right-handed batsman came to bat in the lower-order. He served for the Kenyan team between 2006 and 2018 where he played 25 T20Is.
In his T20I career, while Hiren came to bat in 12 innings, he remained not out in 11 innings and was dismissed for only once. That’s why his T20I average was exactly similar to his entire T20I runs, which was 51. Hiren’s highest T20I knock was 18*. In his T20I career, Hiren hit only one four.
