With batting in T20s becoming easier, the scores on board are reaching new heights, thanks to the drop-in pitches and shorter boundaries being used all around the globe.
Two times in international T20s, 36 runs have been scored in an over. Yuvraj Singh (India) against Stuart Broad (England) and Kieron Pollard (West Indies) against Akila Dananjaya (Sri Lanka) have attained the optimum result of hitting six sixes in an over.
This article will list the top ten overs that conceded the most runs in T20 international cricket.
