3 surprise performances in T20 World Cup 2024

3 surprise performances in T20 World Cup 2024

Not Virat Kohli, David Warner, or Jasprit Bumrah – it's the lesser-known players who are the best performers in the T20 World Cup 2024.

Before the T20 World Cup tournament began, with 20 teams included, many believed the matches would be one-sided, causing the tournament to lose its charm. However, defying these expectations, lower-ranked teams have proven they can challenge and even defeat their higher-ranked opponents with standout performances from their match-winning players. Interestingly, the top performers in the tournament have emerged not from the big teams but from the underdogs.
