World Cup T20 Highlights Until End of Group Stage

  • After India's 119 against Pakistan earlier in the tournament proved to be the joint-lowest winning first innings total at the T20 World Cup, this was quickly passed by South Africa's 113 for six against Bangladesh and then again by Bangladesh's 106 against Nepal before the end of the first group stage of the competition.
  • During the history of the T20 World Cup, there have been 46 completed innings of fewer than 100. Twelve of these have been in the 2024 tournament. (These figures include totals where a team has been either dismissed or their overs have been exhausted).
  • At the higher end of team totals, only three of the tournament's seventeen 200+ totals have so far been scored in the 2024 tournament. The West Indian total of 218 for 5 against Afghanistan in the last match of the group stage heads the list in the 2024 tournament.
  • There have been 26 instances in the T20 World Cup of a match aggregate (with a result) of no more than 200 runs and nine have taken place in the current tournament.
  • Based on a minimum of 30 balls in an innings, there have been 27 occasions of a player not averaging five runs per over in the entire history of the T20 World Cup. Seven of these have been in the current tournament.
  • Scotland's 180 for 5 against Australia is the second-highest first innings total in this year's event by a losing side. This ended their chances of progressing by just three balls. The highest such losing total so far in 2024 is Canada's 194 for 5 against U.S.A.
  • Before this tournament, Sri Lanka had won most matches in the T20 World Cup (32). They could, though, only add one further victory before their elimination although they did score one of the three 200+ totals in that victory (over Netherlands).
  • Lockie Ferguson became the first bowler in the T20 World to not concede a run in a full spell of four overs. He finished with 4-4-0-3 for New Zealand against Papua New Guinea. The feat has been achieved on one other occasion in T20 Internationals, Saad Bin Zafar taking 4-4-0-2 for Canada against Panama in 2021-22.
  • There have been 85 ducks in the 2024 tournament so far, already ahead of the previous record of 79 in the 2021 tournament.
  • To date, no bowler has conceded 50 runs in an innings irrespective of the number of overs bowled. There have, though, been fifteen instances of a bowler (bowling a minimum of four overs in an innings) conceding an average of 10 or more runs per over.
  • At the other end of the scale, of the eleven occasions at the T20 World Cup where a bowler has bowled a minimum of four overs conceding an average of 2 runs or fewer per over, eight have been during this tournament.
  • England's victory in 19 balls is the quickest by a side batting second at the T20 World Cup. The previous best was Sri Lanka's 30-ball win against Netherlands in 2014.
  • There have been twenty-seven T20 World Cup instances of a side losing their first four wickets for 30 or fewer of which eight have been in the 2024 tournament.
  • Based on bowling a minimum of 12 overs in a T20 World Cup tournament, the top three performers with the lowest bowling economy rate have currently all come in the 2024 tournament: Tim Southee (3.00 rpo) and Trent Boult (3.69) will remain as New Zealand have been eliminated whilst Bangladesh's Mustafizur Rahman (3.38) will likely change.
  • The highest economy rates to date in the 2024 tournament are currently held by Oman's Bilal Khan (8.96), Adil Rashid (8.92) and Namibia's Ruben Trumpelmann (8.92). This is again based on a minimum of 12 overs in the tournament. Rashid's is the only one of these which could now change.
  • The partnership of 37* between Sherfane Rutherford and Gudakesh Motie for West Indies against New Zealand is the record for the tenth wicket at the T20 World Cup.
  • There have been three dismissals to the first ball of a match, the most in a T20 World Cup tournament surpassing the two in both 2012 and 2014.
  • Marcus Stoinis provided the fourth instance of a player scoring 50 and taking three wickets in the T20 World Cup. Fellow Australian, Shane Watson (twice), and Dwayne Bravo are the only other players to achieve the feat.
  • There have been nine matches in the T20 World Cup where no bowler on either side has conceded 25 runs. The matches in 2024 (South Africa vs. Sri Lanka; Papua New Guinea vs. Uganda and Australia vs. Namibia) are part of this number.
  • Afghanistan's Fazalhaq Farooqi, with 12 wickets to date in the tournament, has the opportunity of beating Wanindu Hasaranga's record 16 wickets in a T20 World Cup competition, set in 2021.
  • Nicholas Pooran's 98 for West Indies against Afghanistan is the highest score of the current tournament to date.
  • Aiden Markram (South Africa vs. Bangladesh) and Glenn Maxwell (Australia vs. Namibia) have both taken four catches in an innings in the current tournament. This equals the most at the T20 World Cup which was held by Darren Sammy (West Indies vs. Ireland in 2010).
  • Sri Lanka's 201 for six against Netherlands is the highest T20 World Cup total not to include a fifty partnership. The previous highest was England's 193 for seven against South Africa at Chittagong in 2014.
