5. Mitchell Marsh (AUS): 77 off 50 Vs New Zealand In ICC T20 World Cup Final 2021.
The Australian all-rounder demolished New Zealand’s T20 World Cup hopes by outclassing Kane Willaimson’s knock in the final of the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Mitchell Marsh walked out to bat after Australia had lost Arron Finch in the third over of the innings in pursuit of the 172-run total in the final. He came out with the intention of tearing the opposition apart with his brutal power. Adam Milne hit his first ball to deep backward square leg for a six. The two deliveries after that were also sent to the boundary ropes. He hit boundaries against every bowler he faced and finished unbeaten on 77 off 50 balls. Mitchell Marsh’s knock should go down as one of the greatest in T20 World Cup history. His match-winning knock helped Australia’s chase of 173 in 18.5 overs. As a result, Australia won their first ICC T20 World Cup.
4. Kane Williamson (NZ): 85 off 48 Vs Australia In ICC T20 World Cup Final 2021.
Kane Williamson, the captain of the New Zealand Cricket Team, stepped up with the bat once more when it was most needed. New Zealand competed in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 final. They didn’t get off to a good start, as the in-form Daryl Mitchell was out in the fourth over of the game.
Kane Williamson, the skipper, kept a close eye on things during the first half of the game. He struggled to get going, scoring 18 runs off 19 balls. However, in the second half of the inning, he changed gears most intriguingly. Kane Williamson then scored 51 runs in his next 20 deliveries, propelling the team to a competitive 171-run total in 20 overs. He finished his innings with 85 off 48 deliveries, a knock that included 10 fours and three sixes. Unfortunately, his knock was in vain as New Zealand lost the tournament final by 8 wickets.
3. Mohammad Rizwan (PAK): 79 off 55 Vs India In ICC T20 World Cup 2021, 16th Match.
On October 24, Pakistan and India began their ICC T20 World Cup 2021 campaign against each other in the 16th match. The Pakistan Cricket Team bowled exceptionally well in the first innings, limiting India to 151 runs. Babar Azam and his squad needed a strong start to win the match and thus begin their campaign on a high note. Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam got the team off to a flying start, much to the delight of the fans. Mohammad Rizwan appeared to be in good form with the bat. He wasn’t about to give India a chance to get back into the game. Pakistani batsmen sent all bad balls to the boundary ropes and continued to take singles and doubles to prevent India from putting pressure on them.
Mohammad Rizwan played an unbeaten 79-run knock-off 55 balls to help Pakistan chase the target on the board in just 17.5 overs. Pakistan also ended India’s unbeaten streak against them in ICC tournaments. Mohammad Rizwan’s matured knock is without a doubt one of the most remarkable T20 knocks of all time.

Virat Kohli’s strike rate was 153.85 and scored an unbeaten 80-run knock-off 52 balls, including seven fours and two sixes.
