History of players with the highest strike rate in T20

The strike rate in cricket means the number of runs a player scores according to the balls faced by him. It is an essential factor in the cricket world to have a higher strike rate for better growth of the player and the team.

Especially in the T20 world cup matches, which is a fast-moving format of cricket, maintaining the high strike rate helps in the judgment of the team and players. 

The strike rate counts on two statistics; one is the Batting strike rate, and the other is the Bowling strike rate. Batting strike rate refers to the average number of runs of the player per 100 balls faced.

The higher the strike rate, the higher are chances of the player to score well. In the ICC T20 world cup, the highest rate values more than any other format of cricket. Bowling strike rate means the average number of balls bowled per wicket taken. It is the opposite of the batting strike rate as the lower the strike rate is, it indicates that the bowler is more efficient in taking wickets.
