T20 cricket is currently the most-lucrative format of the game. Consistency though is difficult to obtain in the shortest format, mainly due to its unpredictability. Teams don’t often get winning streaks in T20s.

However, there have been a few teams who have managed to gain the upper hand over a particular opposition in T20Is. So, here’s a look at the best head-to-head record between two teams in the shortest format of the game. 

Note – This list excludes records against Bangladesh, Zimbabwe, Afghanistan, Ireland and Associate Nations.

#6 West Indies against England (11/15 wins)

West Indies might not be the same force in Tests that they were back in the 1970s and 1980s but when it comes to Twenty20 cricket, they are a power-house. They were slow to start off, but since the turn of the decade, they have been one of the most dominating teams in the shortest format.

Against England, they've enjoyed a very good run, winning 11 out of 15 T20s. England and West Indies started their T20 rivalry with a 2-match T20 series in 2007. After that series, which was closely fought (ended 1-1), England have managed to win only three games against the Windies in 13 matches (in 2011, 2012 and 2014).

Even in World T20s, Windies have managed to get the better of England. They have won all 5 games, including the memorable final of the World T20 2016 where Carlos Braithwaite launched 4 sixes in the final over to help Windies clinch their second World T20 title.
