T20 Trivia

Did you know that:

  • David Hussey holds the record for the maximum total runs scored in the history of T20
The Australian batsman has represented a number of teams in T20 cricket – Australia, Australia A, KKR in the IPL, Melbourne Stars, Victoria, Northern Districts and Nottingamshire. He has played a total of 189 matches scoring 4670 runs at a very good average of 31.5 and a strike rate of 135.71

It is interesting that the T20 record holder is yet to make an appearance for Australia in the current ICC World Twenty20 2012. With the Aussies doing superbly before that Super Eight match against Pakistan, they have not found much reason to include Hussey in the team. However, it is possible that they may want to utilize his experience in the semi-final match against West Indies tomorrow.

  • Albie Morkel of South Africa has made the maximum number of T20 appearances.

He became the first player in the world to appear in 200 matches and has till now played a total of 202 matches.

Morkel has played for many teams including South Africa, Chennai Super Kings in the IPL and the Titans.
