Cricket Record: T20 International cricket was started in 2005. T20 cricket is thrilling as players try to hit big shots. The batsmen need to score at a fast pace.
Many big batsmen get out early due to pressure in a T20 match. Building a partnership in T20 cricket is very important. Any team needs a big partnership to score a big score.
