South Africa opener, Quinton de Kock (556) has entered the top 10 list for this current edition. He is the 1st South African to achieve this feat.

India batsman Virat Kohli is also there, just 4 runs short of surpassing no. 10 batsman Martin Guptill and there are at least two matches left for him.

Rachin Ravindra (523) is also around the corner to achieve this feat. Hope they make it and build this edition like the 2019 Edition.
