Most T20s in career

The shortest format of the game has seen several cricketers prioritize one format over the other in order to prolong their careers. Even though the exciting format is quite severe on cricketers, offering very less margin of error, several players have thrived in this format of the game. On that note, here is the list the players who have accumulated the most appearances in T20s, surviving the test of time and performing at the highest level despite their age.

3. Shoaib Malik (Pakistan) – 501

The veteran Pakistani cricketer, who celebrated his 41st birthday last week, is still going strong at his ripe age, defying all odds. Malik is currently representing the Rangpur Riders in the Bangladesh Premier League and recently reached the landmark of 500 appearances in the shortest format of the game. He has appeared in 501 T20s across several domestic leagues around the globe, scoring 12328 runs and scalping 162 wickets.

2. Dwayne Bravo (West Indies) – 556

The two-time T20 World Cup winner is arguably one of the finest all-rounders to have graced the shortest format of the game. Dwayne Bravo has featured for several successful franchises around the globe, however, it was his stint with IPL side Chennai Super Kings that propelled him to stardom. A fearsome striker of the ball, Bravo specializes in nullifying the batters at the death with his canny variations and deadly yorkers. The man from Trinidad has played 556 T20s, scoring 6894 and registering 614 wickets.

1. Kieron Pollard (West Indies) – 614

Joining his fellow Trinidadian on the list, Kieron Pollard takes the cake for most appearances in the shortest format of the game. A brute of a batter who has single-handedly won numerous matches for his franchises across the globe, Pollard was one of the vital cogs in the Mumbai Indians juggernaut who won five IPL titles with the Windies international. The tall all-rounder is a must-watch in the field, with his gravity-defying acrobatics. He has featured in 614 T20s, amassing 11915 runs and scalping 309 wickets.
