#1 Virat Kohli – 1141 Runs

The run machine has always been in the list of top run scorers in any format of the game, in this shortest format also he has lasted his impact with his incredible run-scoring capability. Virat Kohli over the years in the T20 World Cup has scored 1141 runs in 25 innings making him the top run scorer in the history of T20 World Cups. However, with the likelihood of this being his last T20 WC, he is poised to make an impact and extend his run tally further.

Kohli has 14th half-centuries under his name and he is yet to score a century in T20 World Cups, so this time around he will be focused on breaking that record and helping his side (India) end their ICC trophy drought.

#2 Mahela Jayawardene – 1016 Runs

Despite not being a player anymore, the legendary Sri Lankan still holds the record for being the second-highest run-scorer in T20 World Cups, having scored 1016 runs in 31 innings. He has been an important member of the Lankan Lions over the years. With 302 runs throughout the campaign, he was also the 2010 edition’s leading run scorer.
