One of the most anticipated cricket competitions is the T20 World Cup. Every squad has given their all in order to win this competition. As a result, we may expect to witness both excellent and bad records during this event. Teams from around the world travel to compete in the World Cup.
That is why this tournament is one of the most competitive in the world. Every team makes every attempt in a given 20 overs to score the most runs possible in order to gain an advantage over their opponent. However, doing so can cause them to lose momentum, resulting in a low-scoring all-out. In this article, we will also look at the teams’ lowest-ever totals in the T20 Cricket World Cup.
Lowest T20 World Cup Team
1. Netherlands (39 All-out) against Sri Lanka in the 2014 World Cup
The Netherlands has one of the most undignified records in the historical past. Sri Lanka and the Netherlands met in the 19th match of the 2014 World Cup. Sri Lanka won the toss and asked the opposition to bat first at Chattogram. However, that day was arguably the worst in Dutch cricket history. They batted first and lost three wickets for one run.
After that, they failed to recover, and the rest of the team went all-out for only 39 runs. They also had the lowest-ever total in the T20I World Cup’s history. Ajantha Mendis and Angelo Mathews each took three wickets. Sri Lanka needed only five overs to win the match while chasing a small target.
2. Netherlands (44 All-out) against Sri Lanka in the 2021 World Cup
In the most recent World Cup in the UAE, history was repeated between these two countries. This was the tournament’s 12th match in Sharjah. The Netherlands batted first after Sri Lanka won the toss. The batting team got off to another slow start, losing wickets at regular intervals. Sri Lankan bowlers dominated the Dutch batters. As a result, the Netherlands went all-out for 44 runs, the second-lowest innings total in the world.
Colin Ackermann was the only batter to reach the 10-run mark, scoring 11 times. Lahiru Kumara and Wanindu Hasaranaga each took three wickets for Sri Lanka. Kusal Parera purely took the game away while trying to chase down the target, and Sri Lanka reached the target in eight overs. Lahiru Kumara was named “Player of the Match” for his 3/7.
3. West Indies (55 all-out) against England in the 2021 World Cup
This incident occurred during the most recent World Cup in the UAE. The 14th meeting between the West Indies and England took place at the Dubai Cricket Stadium. After winning the toss, the English team chose to bowl first. Batting first, the Caribbean team had a dreadful start, losing five wickets in the first seven overs. Following that, the English bowlers simply dominated the innings, bowling the West Indies out for 55 runs.
Adil Rashid bowled an unbelievable spell, taking four wickets and enabling only two runs. England lost two of their four wickets while chasing the target, but the target was not that massive in the end. As a result, they reached the target with six wickets in hand and 70 balls to spare. Mooen Ali was named “Man of the Match” for his 2/17 performance in four overs.
