While 36 teams played T20Is in 2020, it is more meaningful to look at performances in a more restricted set. So we consider only matches between the 14 teams who have played ODIs in the past.

Batting: Most runs (175 and above):

Led by Hafeez and Rahul.

There is only one century (GD Philips). 5 players made 4 scores of 50+, including KL Rahul.

Highest individual scores (70 and above):

Spare a thought for Malan and Hafeez who scored 99*, besides others with 95. The highest for India is 85 by Kohli.

There is not enough data to make meaningful analysis of averages and strike rates.

Bowling: Most wickets (8 or more):

The fast-improving Ngidi leads with 17 wickets. India’s SN Thakur is in third place.

5wi has been made once by 4 players. 4wi has been made once by 8 players.

Best innings bowling: Includes all instances of 4wi

The best performances are by the lesser-known Haroon Arshad and LH Ferguson. Bumrah (3-12)

has the best figures for India.

Best fielding (5 or more dismissals):

This is headed by TL Seifert of NZ. with 11 dismissals. Southee (9) has the best by a non-keeper. Rizwan (3) has the most stumpings. Kohli and Rahul both made 5 dismissals, the best for India.

Best innings fielding: (3 or more dismissals)

No one from India even made 3 dismissals here.

All-round performance: (Minimum 20 runs and 2 wickets in a match)

Of these 8 instances, two were by Thakur and 2 by Agar. The best seems to be Haroon Arshad’s 27/5-16, followed by Agar’s 20*/5-24.
