Former New Zealand skipper Brendon McCullum holds the record for the highest individual score in the history of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.


The swashbuckling opener hammered a brutal 123 in just 58 deliveries against Bangladesh at Pallekele during the 2012 edition of the showpiece event. Baz’s knock was studded with 11 fours and seven sixes. And 12 years later, it is still the highest individual score in the event’s history.

At the second spot is the “Universe Boss,” Chris Gayle, who lit up the opening match of the inaugural edition against South Africa by smashing a whirlwind 57-ball 117 with the help of 7 fours and 10 monstrous sixes.

The top five is bookended by South African top-order batsman, Rillie Rossouw, who hammered a brilliant 109 off 56 deliveres against Bangladesh in the previous World Cup at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG).


Rossouw is followed by New Zealand dynamic batsman, Glenn Phillips, who racked up an astounding 104 (64) against Sri Lanka at the same venue in 2022.
