5 Best Finishers In The T20 World Cup 2022

t20 World Cup 2022 best finishers

The second of the back-to-back T20 World Cup will commence with the qualifying round on October 16 in Australia. The Super 12 will kick-off on October 22. Defending champions Australia won the tournament less than 12 months ago in the UAE, and will have a chance to become the first team to successfully defend their T20 title.

Today we will look at the 5 best finishers who will be on show in the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia:

Tim David

It is scary to think that Australia have strengthened their batting by adding Tim David to their already strong batting line-up that won the T20 WC last year, chasing big totals against Pakistan in the semi-final and New Zealand in the final.

Tim David’s inclusion in the squad and possibly in the line-up - at the expense of perhaps Steve Smith or Marcus Stoinis - was expected. For David, the burly Singapore batting all-rounder, has already made his name as one of the most destructive T20 batters in the world by playing around the franchise leagues and bagging a million-dollar deal in the IPL with MI.

Tim David has already played 127 T20 matches, wherein he averages 31 - at, more significantly, a strike rate of 163! When it comes to death overs hitting, David’s strike rate moves up to 200.

Dinesh Karthik

Not many players have ever made a comeback in the national side at the age of 37. But Dinesh Karthik forced his way into the Indian team following a scintillating IPL season for RCB, wherein he smashed 330 runs at a strike rate of 183.

Dinesh Karthik, who is perhaps India’s best death overs pace-hitter at the moment, has won two Player of the Match awards on his return to the side in recent months. Further, DK plundered runs at a strike rate of 220 in the death overs in the IPL 2022.

Liam Livingstone

England star Liam Livingstone has taken on the world by storm since last year’s home summer where he recorded England’s fastest T20I century off 42 balls.

Liam Livingstone, who will command England’s death-over mauling in this year’s T20 WC as well, has an experience of 200 T20 matches. He finally rocked the IPL this year - walloping 437 runs at 182 - and in the slog overs of all T20 matches in 2022, Livingstone has struck at 186.

David Miller

David Miller has been in superb form and has regained the seemingly lost touch since last year: from 2021, Miller averages 44 with strike rate of 152 in 26 T20Is for South Africa, all of them away from home.

David Miller had perhaps his best IPL season this year, scoring 481 runs, helping Gujarat Titans win the title. With a vast experience of 400 T20 matches, David Miller is going to be a force to reckon with at this year’s T20 WC.

Glenn Maxwell

366 T20 matches, average of 28, strike rate of 151 - Glenn Maxwell’s numbers, his reputation for itself. The fact that IPL franchises have always spent big bucks on him despite him underperforming in the previous edition before that auction speaks of the faculties of the Victorian.

Captain of the Melbourne Stars, Glenn Maxwell is amongst the finest T20 players in the world. He’s played 130 of his all T20 matches in Australia where he strikes at 150 in these games. In death overs this year, the right-hander has clattered runs at strike rate of 233!

In a home World Cup, having a finishing pair of Glenn Maxwell and Tim David gives Australia a massive boost. Good luck to the bowlers bowling to this pair in the death overs.
