T20 revolutionised cricket when it arrived in 2003. Attacking batting, outrageous fielding, the rise of the mystery spinner; the game hasn’t been the same since. Whilst the format is, arguably, still in its infancy, 19 years is sufficient time to take stock and ask, who is the greatest T20 player of all time?
It’s an interesting question, and who better to answer it than some of those who have been at the epicentre of the revolution? Ahead of IPL15, Betway sat down with Kevin Pietersen, commentators Ian Bishop and Aakash Chopra, and South Africa stars Rassie van der Dussen and Lungi Ngidi to reveal their T20 GOATs across five categories.
In this video they discuss:
- The most consistent T20 run-scorer of all time
- Why Chris Gayle is the most destructive batter ever
- Which mystery spinner was the most difficult to face
- The genius of Lasith Malinga
- A ‘mind-boggling’ South African fielder
