#1 Lowest team score
Four of the top five lowest World T20 totals came in the last World T20. The lowest of all came by Netherlands, who could only manage 39 against Sri Lanka in 2014. After being asked to bat by Sri Lanka, the Dutch didn’t give a good account of themselves as they were bowled out for the lowest team score in a World T20 match.
Their run rate of 3.71 is the lowest by any team in a completed innings and it was also the only time that a team had scored fewer than 50 runs. Only one batsman, Tom Cooper, managed to get to double digits while there were five players who finished with 0, which was one shy of a world record of most ducks in an innings.
Although they lost a wicket, Sri Lanka got there in just five overs, thereby handing the Dutch a humiliating loss.
