T20 World Cup 2021 most runs: The Sportsrush presents before you the list of top-10 run scorers in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2021 in UAE
After three weeks of intense battle between top T20 sides in the world, the ongoing 2021 ICC T20 World Cup has reached its business end.
The Cricketing fraternity is ready to embrace a new T20 World champion, and it’s either Australia or New Zealand who will lift the coveted silverware for the first time ever in the tournament’s history- which commenced in the year 2007.
The grand finale will take place tomorrow- November 14, at the Dubai International Stadium in what promises to be a cracker of a Trans-tasman rivalry between the two neighboring nations.
Run-making has been a task hard cut-out for the batters for a major part in the ongoing tournament, courtesy the sluggish nature of the three venue pitches where the matches are being conducted at- Dubai, Sharjah, and Abu Dhabi.
But, in the final few matches of the group stages and the two semi-finals the batters have come out with the much needed flair and intensity, as the chasing teams have had much of a say in the final outcome.

Having played 6 innings each, Babar and Rizwan have scored 303 and 281 runs respectively. While Babar returns with an average of 60.60, Rizwan has batted with an average of 70.25 runs in the tournament which includes a half-century in the semi-finals against Australia as well.
