10 Players with Highest strike rates in T20 International Matches

T20 format of cricket seems to have been invented for records like most sixes and highest strike rates. At least the way the game is being played now a day, suggests the same. A cricket match comprised of only 40 overs in total cannot be expected to offer anything else than the pure hard hitting in batting. While in bowling, nobody blames a bowler for even getting bashed for over 30 runs in a single over now. Because it has become a habit for the batsmen to hit maximum number of runs in as less as possible balls. The record of hitting six sixes in an over has already been filled by Yuvraj Singh and now fans are hoping for more than 36 runs coming off a single over. Certainly the day is not far enough when this happens.
