The T20 World Cup 2024, hosted jointly by the West Indies and the United States, came to a close this Saturday and quite a few of our Super Giants made an impression at the marquee event.

Here’s a look at some of the standouts.

Quinton de Kock

Quinton de Kock played a key role in guiding South Africa to their first final in an ICC men’s cricket event, top-scoring for the team with 243 runs from nine matches. 

Our star opener scored two fifties and finished fourth overall in the batting charts with an impressive strike rate of 140.46, powering the Proteas to good totals on challenging surfaces.

Both of de Kock’s half-centuries came in consecutive Super 8 clashes as he top-scored for the Proteas and paved the path for the team’s progress to the final.  

The wicketkeeper-batter also had eight dismissals behind the stumps. 


Naveen-ul-Haq headlined Afghanistan’s historic run in the T20 World Cup 2024 as the team made its maiden appearance in the semi-finals of an ICC World Cup. 

Our ace pacer picked up 13 wickets from eight matches at an impressive average and strike rate of 12.30 and an economy rate of just six runs per over. 

Naveen’s impressive spells against Australia and Bangladesh in the Super 8 stage set up Afghanistan’s best-ever showing in cricket World Cups. He was the go-to bowler whenever the team needed a breakthrough.

Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran was the top run-getter for the West Indies and sixth in the overall list of batters in the T20 World Cup 2024. Nicky P tallied 228 runs from seven matches at a healthy average of 38.00 and an excellent strike rate of 146.15.

The wicketkeeper-batter’s scintillating 98 off just 53 balls against Afghanistan was the highest individual score in this World Cup, powering the Windies to 218/5, the highest aggregate by any team in the tournament.

Marcus Stoinis

Marcus Stoinis, the all-rounder, shone for Australia in the T20 World Cup as he came to the fore with both the bat and the ball. 

With the bat, our Stoinis aggregated 169 runs from five innings at an excellent average of 42.25 and a strike rate of 164.07. He scored two crucial half-centuries for Australia in their group-stage matches.

Stoinis was effective with the ball too, picking up 10 wickets from six innings, finishing in the top-20 list of batters as well as bowlers in the T20 World Cup 2024.
