The 2022 edition of the Twenty20 World Cup will take place in Australia later this year. It was back in 2007 that the first Twenty 20 World Cup was held. Since then, multiple things have changed concerning the tournament. In this upcoming edition, we could witness several records that can break. These records could be either regarding the history of the Twenty 20’s or the World Cup itself.
On that note, here are three records created in the 2022 Twenty20 World Cup:
Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli Record: Most runs in T20 World Cup history
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are at the top of the highest run-scorers in T20I cricket. Martin Guptill is also in the fray. Amongst these three, one of them will end up at the top by the end of the 2022 T20 WC.
In the T20 WC history, Mahela Jayawardene has scored 1016 runs and is the highest run-getter. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli made 847 and 845 runs in the event.
Hence, one of these two Indian cricketers might beat Jayawardene and go to the top later this year.
Shakib Al Hasan Record: Most wickets in T20 World Cup history
Shakib Al Hasan is the highest wicket-taker in T20 WC history with 41 wickets. Even in T20s, he is the highest wicket-taker with 122 scalps. The Bangladesh all-rounder could play in his last T20 World Cup and might break a few records in the 2022 T20 WC.
None of the current cricketers is close to Shakib in T20 WC. Here, Shakib could target crossing the 50 mark, automatically getting him close to 150 T20I wickets, which could be the target before he calls time on his career.
Rohit Sharma or Virat Kohli another Record: Most fours in T20 World Cup history
The most fours in T20 WC history is one of the records created in the 2022 T20 World Cup. Mahela Jayawardene is at the top of the list with 111 fours. While Rohit has 80 fours, Virat has 78 boundaries till now. Hence, both have a chance to beat the Sri Lankan.
In T20’s, Paul Stirling is the highest boundary scorer till now. He will also be in action at the T20 World Cup; hence, Rohit and Virat might find it hard to overtake him.
