Carlos Brathwaite's stunning effort in the 2016 final has been voted the greatest men's T20 World Cup performance in a fan vote conducted by ESPNcricinfo. Brathwaite emerged as the winner from a set of 16 shortlisted performances. The 16 were paired in match-ups of two, with the winning performance progressing to the next round. Brathwaite's performance beat Yuvraj Singh's 70 in the 2007 World Cup semi-final against Australia, getting 58% of the votes polled in the final match-up. Brathwaite's performance also emerged on top in an internal ESPNcricinfo staff poll, with Yuvraj in joint-second alongside Marlon Samuels' 78 & 1-15 in the 2012 final against Sri Lanka.
Winner: 3-23 & 34*(10) vs ENG | Carlos Brathwaite | Kolkata, 2016
Nineteen to win in the final over. Four balls, four sixes. "Carlos Brathwaite, remember the name!" Those hits at Eden Gardens will forever remain part of cricketing folklore. What gets forgotten is that Brathwaite was effective with the ball too: he picked up the key wickets of Jos Buttler and Joe Root to finish with figures of 4-0-23-3. He then came in at No. 8 with West Indies 107 for 6 in 15.3 chasing 156, and took them to their second title in the company of Marlon Samuels.
Runner-up: 70 (30) vs AUS | Yuvraj Singh | Durban, 2007
India's young side had made a slow start in the T20 World Cup semi-final and were 41 for 2 at the end of the eighth over. Yuvraj began with a swivel-pull against Stuart Clark - one of the best bowlers of the tournament - for six off the second ball he faced, and smashed a 119-metre pick-up shot off Brett Lee in the next over. His entire innings was like a highlights reel: the 70 off 30 balls included five sixes and as many fours, and he almost single-handedly took India to a match-winning 188.
