T Dilshan, Twenty20: Most runs and highest Individual run

The second season of World Twenty20 is passing very hard. The teams that was in the top favorite, has been kicked out from this season. Pakistan, who did not play any single tournament this year except the match along with Australia in Dubai, will play the final second time. No doubt that is tough to calculate that which teams are favorite in this super-limited over match. But, Lankan batsman T Dilshan’s performances explained that he could present something different in this season.

Yes, he is the most runs achiever and highest individuals till semi-finals. Just before the semi-final along with West Indies, he overtakes G Gambhir and achieves the title of most run taker. From 11 matches an able to score 382 run. To reach here he had to store 3 half-centuries and hits 48 boundaries and 7 sixes.

In the same match he touches another record of highest individual runs of the year 2009 world tournament. T Dilshan scored 96 runs (not out) from 57 balls during the semi-final against West Indies in 2009. CH Gayle holds the highest individuals record holders and only century from his bat in 2007 world Twenty20 and this year he scored 88 runs from 50 balls.

In the last World Twenty20 Matthew Hayden scored 265 runs in 2007. Tillakaratne Dilshan overtakes the record and scores 317 runs. It is sure that he will be the most run record holder this year, if they could not be qualified for the final.
