T20 World Cup Stats (2007-2016)

by Hreet N. Business
The England & Wales Cricket Board formed the standard guidelines for T20 cricket, and the first event was held in 2003 by the County Team members of England. Within two years, in 2004, Australia and New Zealand got to play the very first formal T20 match in Auckland. Because the match is short and intriguing, the rising popularity of this layout recommended that this lively format would've been praised and liked by many youths and other people.

This layout reached new heights in less than three years, with India winning the first-ever T20 World Cup in 2007. This victory by Team India created a massive market for T20 cricket in the Indian territory, and as a result, the BCCI created the IPL to capitalize on this. Here are some T20 World Cup stats listed below:

•    In the T20 World Cups, Mahela Jayawardene has by far the most runs. He has 1,016 runs in 31 innings, avg 39.07 with six fifties and one century. Even so, Virat Kohli seems to be the only active player on the ranking of the top 5 run achievers in T20 World Cups, and he will be in action in the next year's World Cup. The Indian former captain, who has been competing in his first and final T20 World Cup as captain, is ranked fourth on this list. In 16 matches, he has scored 777 runs at an incredible overall mean of 86.33.

•    Brendon McCullum, the excellent New Zealand wicketkeeper-batsman, has the greatest individual score in the T20 World Cup. In 2012, the New Zealander scored 123 runs off 58 balls against Bangladesh.

•    Not unexpectedly, West Indian T20 superstar Chris Gayle has by far the most centuries in the T20 World Cup. Gayle has 2 centuries in the T20. Six other gamers have one century each.

•    Quickest century: In 2016, Chris Gayle managed to score a century in 48 balls against England.

•    Australian pacemen Brett Lee has become the first bowler in history to take a hat-trick in both T20Is and ODIs. In the ICC 2003 ODI Cup Final league game in Durban, he scored his first ODI hat-trick against Kenya. In 2007, he played against Bangladesh in the opening ceremony edition of the ICC T20I Tournament in Cape Town and took his first t20 hat trick.

•    Yuvraj Singh, India's star lefty batter, hammered six sixes in an over against England in the 2007 Tournament. With this, he set a new record for the quickest fifty in only 12 balls.

•    Most Sixes: Gayle has set yet another record in the T20 by hitting the most number of sixes. All through his T20 World Cup appearances, he hammered 60 sixes.

•    Shahid Afridi, the Pakistani all-rounder, has taken the most wickets in T20 Cup Finals. In 34 games, this spin bowler has taken 39 wickets.

•    Ajantha Mendis, the former Miracle Spinner from Sri Lanka, has the finest bowling statistics to his name. Mendis took six wickets and allowed only eight runs in four overs against Zimbabwe in the 2012 T20.

•    Ajantha Mendis also holds the world record for having the highest bowling scoring rate in T20 Cup Finals. In the 21 games he has played, he has a strike rate of 13.4.

•    Mendis also holds the record for most wickets taken in a given season. In the 2012 World Cup, he took 15 wickets in six matches.
