  • Array

Dashing Afghan cricketer Mohammad Shehzad has topped others in scoring runs in T20 format of the game in 2015.

The right-handed batsman, who also serves as wicketkeeper for his team, has made 297 out of 11 matches he played in 2015. He is followed by Faf du Plessis of South Africa who has made 272 so far in the year.

Asghar Stanikzai of Afghanistan holds fourth position with his 227 and is only short of 13 runs after Sean Williams of Zimbabwe who is placed third.

The 27-year-old Shahzad has been considered a big factor behind Afghan team’s steady improvement.

He is the first Afghan batsman to score double century – 214 against Canada that powered his team to win the 2011 ICC Intercontinental Cup. (1TV)
