Mr. Boom-Baz-Tick’s Six-Hitting Feat

 

T20 cricket has opened up vistas for players with special skills. A format with high rewards for unabated aggression up the batting order, T20 is a boon for players like New Zealand's Brendon 'Baz' McCullum.

 

He currently is the leading run-scorer in T20 Internationals, with 1245 runs in 42 innings.
