9) Mohammad Shahzad – 118* vs (Zimbabwe 2016):
Number 9 on the list of highest individual scores in T20 International cricket is Mohammad Shahzad. The Afghanistan Cricket Team is no more naive. Giving the world best bowlers like Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi to the world they have certainly made a mark in the international game.
But back in 2016 when things were not so prominent. it was Shahzad’s innings that had started it all. It was the eve of two-match T20I series in UAE between Afghan and Zimbabwe. In just 67 deliveries he scored an unbeaten 118. 10 boundaries and 8 sixes to decorate this iconic inning. And Afghanistan registered an iconic 2-0 clean sweep against Zimbabwe.
