Watson, Hafeez rule the roost in T20Is

January 02, 2012 16:02 IST

There was not much action in Twenty20 International cricket, with domestic leagues hogging the limelight in top nations like India, England, South Africa and Australia.

Big burly Australian all-rounder Shane Watson was the top run-getter in T20s in 2011, scoring with 195 runs in five matches, while Pakistan's Mohammad Hafeez scalped the most wickets (10 in five matches) in the year.

A look at the top-20 batsmen and bowlers in Twenty20 Internationals in 2011.
