The eighth season of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL 2020) just finished on 10th September after Trinbago Knight Riders clinched their fourth CPL title by beating St Lucia Zouks (by eight wickets) in the final of this tournament at Brian Lara Cricket Academy (Tarouba).

We didn’t see many high-scoring games during the CPL 2020 as most of the batsmen were not consistent enough during the entire tournament. While many overseas players were unavailable for this tournament due to the pandemic, the Caribbean cricketers are dominating in the most run-scorer list of this tournament.

Here we are talking about the top five most run-scorers in the CPL 2020

Nicholas Pooran (Guyana Amazon Warriors) – 245 runs

The young Guyana Amazon Warriors’ wicket-keeper batsman Nicholas Pooran was mostly inconsistent during the entire CPL 2020. Still finishing in the fifth position in the most run-scorers list of the tournament, Pooran scored 245 runs in 11 innings with an average of 27.22 and strike-rate 123.73.

In that entire tournament, Pooran only played 20+ innings for twice, 68 runs against St Lucia Zouks and 100 not out against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The left-handed wicket-keeper batsman was the only player to score a century in the CPL 2020.
