Rohit Sharma – T20 World Cup
Rohit Sharma, the vice-captain of the Indian cricket team, took first place on the list of players who scored the most runs for India in the Twenty20 World Cup. He scored 847 runs in 33 matches during the tournament (30 innings). In each of the previous iterations of the Twenty20 World Cup, Rohit was a member of the Indian team that competed. In addition to his eight half-centuries, Rohit has a decent strike rate of 131.52, which he has maintained throughout his career.
Sharma made a contribution of 88 runs throughout the course of four games during India’s campaign in 2007, which they won by defeating Pakistan in the final. During India’s most recent encounter in the 2021 Twenty20 World Cup, which was played against Scotland, Sharma surpassed Kohli to become India’s all-time leading scorer in the competition.
Virat Kohli – T20 World Cup
Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian team, currently has the second most runs scored in the T20 World Cup. The star batsman scored 845 runs while playing in 17 Twenty20 World Cup matches, averaging a staggering 76.81 runs per game. His batting average is the best ever recorded in the annals of this prestigious competition. Because of his outstanding performance at the plate in both of the T20 World Cups that came before it (2014 and 2016), Kohli was named the tournament’s Man of the Tournament on both occasions.
Since the 2022 Twenty20 World Cup is going to be Kohli’s one of the last-stage important tournaments, it is reasonable to assume that he will want to go out on a high note.
Yuvraj Singh – T20 World Cup
Yuvraj Singh, a flashy Indian player who specializes in playing white-ball cricket, has to be included on the list because he has scored 593 runs in 31 matches. Who could forget Yuvi’s six sixes against England in the 2007 season, which were hit off Stuart Broad’s bowling?
Yuvi was a terrific striker of the ball during the T20 World Cup. His other memorable innings was the one he played against Australia in the semi-final. He scored 70 runs off of 30 balls, which resulted in an astounding strike rate of 233.33.

Gautam Gambhir – T20 World Cup
The savior of India’s two World Cup finals (the 2007 T20 World Cup and the 2011 World Cup), Gautam Gambhir has scored the fifth most runs for India in the T20 World Cup. He also has the fifth most runs overall. The southpaw who was born in Delhi has a respectable batting average of 26.20 after scoring 524 runs in 21 matches. In the championship game of the T20 World Cup in 2007, he scored 75 runs off 54 balls while playing against Pakistan. No one will ever forget it.
