Pakistan's wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan was on Wednesday adjudged the Leading T20 Cricketer in the World by the Wisden Almanack. The 29-year-old had a scarcely believable run in 2021, becoming the first-ever batter in the history of T20 cricket to amass over 2,000 runs in a calendar year. In 45 innings, the right-hander churned out 2,036 runs at a sterling average of 56.55. Rizwan also became the first-ever player to score 1,000 T20I runs in a calendar year.
