The greatest records ever seen in the t20 world cup
What are the best records of the t20 world cup?
A new cricket record comes today! The Australian cricketer, Glenn Maxwell, has achieved one of the best records in history, hitting 154 from just 64 balls as he powered Melbourne Stars to 273/2 in 20 overs when defeating Hobart Hurricanes team today in the final game of the Big Bash League 2021-22 season.

Even persistence, geniality, perseverance, and consistency are great values and important standards to achieve cricket goals, but external support is not a minor feature. Tough, it is inspiring to see many cricketers giving their best on the field during the t20 world cup.
On the other hand, the combination between geniality and support makes records and history! So, let’s check out what the best t20 records are to remind ourselves how great cricket is. Discover which teams, countries and players have made history through time!
