T20 Cricket is very popular these days and there are many new faces that we see in every other match. It is all about quick runs and big sixes. Players are in and out of the team as fitness has become a norm to get selected in the team. And between all this there are some players who have managed to play for a longer period of time and performed really well. So here I have before you the list of the top 5 leading run scorers in T20I cricket.
1. Brendon McCullam ( NZ )
The former New Zealand captain leads the charts of leading run getters in the T20I cricket with 2140 runs from 71 matches at an average of 35.66 and strike rate of 136.21 and a highest score of 123.
2. Virat Kohli ( IND )
The current Indian skipper is second in the list and is likely to be the leader soon going by his current form. He has 1956 runs from 55 matches at an average of 52.86 and strike rate of 137.84 and 90* being his highest score.
