T20 World Cup 2022: 5 most embarrassing records in the tournament’s history



The thrill of the T20 World Cup has always been quite exciting for the teams as well as the cricket fans. This is such a format of cricket where many stormy records are made. Apart from the big records, many such records have also been made in the T20 World Cup which is embarrassing for any team or player.

Many similar records have been registered in the names of players and teams. In the International T20 World Cup that started in the year 2007, many teams including India won the World Cup title. Let’s take a look at six important embarrassing records made in the five World Cups so far.

The lowest score for any team

The Netherlands holds the record for the lowest score in the T20 World Cup. The Netherlands scored just 39 runs against Sri Lanka in the 2014 World Cup. The run rate in the match is 3.71, the lowest average for any team.

Most runs spent by a single bowler

There are only four bowlers in the T20 World Cup who have scored 60 or more runs in a match. But the record of giving the most runs is in the name of Sanath Jayasuriya of Sri Lanka. Jayasuriya gave 64 runs in four overs against Pakistan in 2007.

Record the most number of dismissals for zero 

How would it feel when a player gets out due to a zero run score? It’s a embarrassing moment for a player. Well, it happens with many players. But in T20 World Cup history, Shahid Afridi and Tillakaratne Dilshan have been dismissed for zero five times in the T20 World Cup.

The worst economy rate in an innings

In the year 2010, Ravindra Jadeja did two overs against Australia and hit three consecutive sixes in the first three balls of both overs. In this match, he bowled two overs and spent 38 runs.

The record for the worst strike rate in an innings is in the name of Shapoor Zardan of Afghanistan. He scored just one run in the year 2014 against Bangladesh in 11 balls at a strike rate of 9.09. Although it was a qualifier match. But in the main match, Sri Lanka’s Tillakaratne Dilshan faced 19 balls against New Zealand in 2010, scoring just 3 runs at a strike rate of 15.78.
