1033 The number of T20 international runs accumulated by Pakistani Mohammad Rizwan in this calendar year. This is now the most by any batter in a single year in this format in international cricket. In doing so, he also became the first batter in T20I history to aggregate over 1000 runs in a single calendar year. He achieved this feat in the T20WC semifinal match against Australia in Dubai on November 11, 2021 during his knock of 67.

85 The number of runs made by New Zealand captain Kane Williamson in the final of the T20 World Cup against Australia in Dubai. This is now the joint-highest individual score to be registered in a T20 WC final. However, since Marlon Samuels was unbeaten, statistically his score is higher than Williamson’s.

31 The number of balls taken by Australian Mitchell Marsh to reach his fifty in the T20 World Cup final against New Zealand in Dubai on November 14, 2021. This is now the fastest, in terms of fewest balls taken to reach an individual fifty in a T20 WC final. Marsh had bettered the previous best of 32 balls by New Zealand’s Kane Williamson who did so, in the first innings of the same match. Interestingly, the 2021 final provided three instances in the top five as listed below.
Quickest to reach an individual fifty in a T20 World Cup final
** Williamson's 85 off 48 balls (S/R 177.08) is the quickest fifty-plus knock in a T20 World Cup final in terms of strike-rate.
** The slowest fifty is in 49 balls by Australian David Hussey (59 in 54 balls) against England in Bridgetown on May 16, 2010
** In all, 11 batters have made 13 scores of 50-plus in a T20WC final, with Kumar Sangakkara and Marlon Samuels doing so twice.
303 The number of runs scored by Babar Azam for Pakistan in this edition of the T20 World Cup. This is now the third-highest run-aggregate made in a single edition of a T20 WC.
