If we take a minimum of 1,000 runs scored in career, Virat Kohli of India has the maximum average ever in T20 Internationals. He is followed by Dawid Malan of England, who is still early into his career. The first list on our site gives you the top 10 batsmen with best averages in their career. However, batsmen who play in the top order usually have a higher average. To negate this advantage as well as the advantage of playing against weaker oppositions, we found out the averages of all batsmen at different positions in the batting order and against different opposition. All this data was combined to get the Comparative Average or the C AVE.
We then found the Relative Average or R AVE. This average is: A batsman’s average divided by C AVE and then multiplied by 26. 26 is just a number. It doesn’t effect the ratings as everyone’s average
is multiplied by it. R AVE is a more accurate average as it negates conditions, oppositions and positions. The second list gives you the top 10 batsmen with best Relative Averages in T20Is. The difference in the ratings is not as drastic as in ODIs, which has a longer history and where averages and strike rates have gone up with time. Nonetheless, we found out the R AVE in T20Is also to keep things consistent on the site.
*Note: All T20I ratings are updated till 2022-04-14. Also only batsmen of test playing nations are considered for the T20I ratings.
