T20 format is the most exciting and popular form of cricket. There is always something happening on the field, either the scoreboard keeps ticking or the bowlers take the wickets. Thus, the batsmen have to apply different dynamics while batting in the shortest format. Despite the difficulties, there have been a handful of cricketers who have managed to score runs consistently for their teams.

England batsman Dawid Malan has toppled Pakistan's Babar Azam to gotten to be the speediest batsman to score 1000 runs in T20 Internationals (T20Is). Malan touched the breakthrough figure on Saturday during the fifth T20I against India. He accomplished the deed in his 24th inning, bettering Azam's record of 26 innings. Amid the match, Malan played a thump of 68 runs from 46 balls. Third on the list is India captain Virat Kohli, who scored 1000 T20I runs in 27 innings, taken after by Australia's Aaron Finch and KL Rahul, who took 29 innings each to get there.


The 33-year-old achieved the feat during the fifth and final T20I match between India and England at Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.

Chasing a big target of 225 runs in the winner-take-all series finale, Malan joined opener Jos Buttler in the centre as early as the third ball of the England innings. The duo then added 130 runs for the second wicket in 82 balls before Buttler's departure in the 13th over.

Malan, batting in his 24th innings, however, continued batting and in the process crossed the 1000-run mark and broke Pakistan captain Babar Azam's (26) record.

India captain Virat Kohli, who scored 80 off 52 earlier in the match, is third fastest, ahead of Australia captain Aaron Finch and India opener KL Rahul -- both on 29.

Previous quickest for England were Kevin Pietersen and Alex Hales, with both reaching in 32 innings each.

Malan finally got out for 68 off 46.
