2. New Zealand – 11 T20I Centuries

Now this is quite surprising not only for you but me as well, as New Zealand ranks on 2nd place in the list most centuries in t20 international cricket by team not because they are not capable of doing it, because they have literally outranked teams like West Indies, and Australia who has pretty good fire power.

Moreover New Zealand team is something which didn’t get enough support and admiration for their performance and I personally believes that their did team does not have some big player who has fan following in masses except Kane Williamson obviously.

New Zealand has  always sticked with 3 or 4 players in their t20 squad who can play longer and destructive knocks. Earlier it was Brendon McCullum, Guptill, and Munro whereas at present Glenn Phillips, and Latham who are handling this job pretty well.
