New Delhi. T20 cricket is considered a game of batsmen. In this format the bowlers are seen on 'backfoot'. In almost every match, a flurry of fours and sixes are hit and a lot of runs are scored. Nowadays, scoring more than 200 or 250 runs is common in this format of cricket. In the Asian Games in the year 2023, a score of more than 300 was made in the match between Nepal and Mongolia. Nepalese team scored 314 runs for three wickets and won the match by a huge margin of 273 runs. It is possible that from June 1 next month, fans will also get to see matches with 300+ scores in the T20 World Cup 2024 (ICC T20 World Cup 2024).

However, amidst this 'domination' of the batsmen, there have been some matches in T20I in which the batsmen and not the bowlers were seen struggling for runs. These matches have been 'lowscoring' due to the weak performance of the batsmen and the help the bowlers are getting from the wicket. Most of these matches are played by amateur teams of world cricket. Talking about the T20 World Cup, in the 8 editions held so far, twice a team has been out with a score of less than 50. The interesting thing is that both the times this has happened with the Netherlands team and both the times this situation has happened. In the match against Sri Lanka.

In the 2014 T20 World Cup match in Chittagong, the Netherlands team was all out for 39 runs in 10.3 overs and in the 2021 T20 World Cup match in Sharjah, the Netherlands team was all out for 44 runs in 10 overs. In both the matches, the Sri Lankan team had achieved the target even before 10 overs. In this sequence, there was a match in the T20 World Cup in which a team was out for 6…yes 0. Top 4 batsmen were included in these batsmen. At one point in this match, the team's account was not opened even after the fall of three wickets. This happened in the match between Kenya and New Zealand in the first T20 World Cup of 2007 in South Africa.

Left is Right… Left-handed batsman-bowler has shone for India in the T20 World Cup.

Kenya lost 4 wickets in the first two overs.
In this match held in Durban on 12 September 2007, while batting first, Kenya's wickets started falling from the second ball itself. Morris Owuma and Tanmay Mishra were out in the first over of the innings bowled by Shane Bond, while David Obuya and captain Steve Tikolo were out in the second over of the innings bowled by Mark Gillespie. None of these four batsmen could open the account. The fall of wickets continued in the subsequent overs and Nehemia and the last batsman Peter Ongondo were also out for 0.

Has hit 6 sixes in 6 balls twice in T20I, made fifty in 9 balls, will show his magic in the World Cup!

Gillespie took maximum four wickets
Of the six batsmen with 0, only Collins Obuya, Thomas Obuyo (18 runs each), Jimmy Kamde (14) and Rajesh Budhiya (11) could reach double figures. Kenya team was out for 73 runs in 16.5 overs. For the Kiwi team, Mark Gillespie took the maximum of 4 wickets while Shane Bond, Kiss Martin and captain Daniel Vettori took two wickets each. In reply, New Zealand achieved the target of 74 runs by losing one wicket in just 7.4 overs. Lou Vincent (27) was the only batsman to be out. Brendon McCullum remained unbeaten on 16 runs and Peter Fulton remained unbeaten on 21 runs. This time 20 teams are participating in the T20 World Cup 2024, out of which 12 are ICC Full Member teams and 8 are Associate Member teams. In such a situation, a flurry of records can be seen in the competition between veteran teams and new teams.

In T20 WC, Team India could never win against two teams, never lost against 4 teams.

8 batsmen have been out on 0 in an innings of T20I.
In an innings of the Kenya-New Zealand match of the T20 World Cup, six batsmen were out on 'duck', but in an innings of the T20I match, 8 batsmen were out on 0. In the match, including both the innings, 9 batsmen were out for 0. In the 2019 Continental Cup match against Czech Republic, 8 batsmen of Turkey (Czech Republic vs Turkey) were out on '0'. Batting first, Czech Republic team scored 278 runs for 4 wickets in 20 overs with the help of Sudesh Wickramasekara's century and Sumit Pokhriyal's 79 runs. Team's batsman Shaun Dalton was also out on 0.

In reply, Turkey's batting fell apart like a house of cards. The entire team was reduced to 21 runs in 8.3 overs. Apart from the opening four batsmen Hasan Helva, Serde Kansoy, Recep Ulutuna and Ahmet Dusak, Sereken Kizilikaya, Ali Kos, Hasan Alta and Tunahan Ulutuna could not open the account. Mehmet Sert was the only batsman on the team to reach double figures (12).
