Cricket is a funny sport. An outstanding individual performance is enough to turn any match on its head. However, only the best teams can produce such performances on a consistent basis.

Over the years, the West Indies team of the 80s and the Australian team of the last decade have been some of the most consistent and dominating teams in the history of cricket.

So, which teams have managed to win the maximum number of matches in a calendar year across formats? Let us have a look.

Here is the list of the top 4 teams.

#4 Pakistan (2011)

Pakistan is one of the most mercurial teams in the history of cricket. When this team is on song, they can defeat anyone like they showed in the 2017 Champions Trophy final. However, inconsistency has always been Pakistan's bane.

They had their best year in terms of wins in 2011. They played a total of 47 matches that year, winning 34 of them to put them in fourth place. They maintained an impressive win-loss ratio of 3.78 during this period.

Pakistan won 6 out 10 test matches, 24 of 32 ODIs and a further 4 of the 5 T20 Internationals that year.
