Think again. This is the Twenty20 era. Any innings at a strike rate of less than 130 is considered pedestrian. Most fans want to see a balance between bat and ball. But, do they want to see the ball flying to all corners of the ground? Yes, Please!
Over the first five editions of the World T20 we have seen some scintillating innings. Most of them have been spectacular and have resulted in a winning cause. 20 overs is a pretty short period and there is no time to play oneself in. A batsman has to go after the bowling almost from the word go and look to improvise and play an array of breathtaking shots.
Here we relive some of the most electrifying and game-changing innings in the history of the competition.
