Lowest T20 World Cup Team

Netherland’s 39 runs against Sri Lanka is considered as the lowest team total ever in the ICC T20 World Cup history. The match has been played on 24 Mar 2014 at Chattogram.

Chosen to bat at first by Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal, the Netherlands lost wickets at regular intervals as four batters were dismissed for a duck. For the Dutch, Tom Cooper was the highest run-scorer as he managed 16 runs off 18 balls, the only batter to get into double digits.

Sri Lanka all-rounder Angelo Mathews and mystery spinner Ajantha Mendis were the pick of the bowlers as they bagged three wickets each.

Prior to Netherlands’ batting misfortune at the 2014 T20 World Cup, the Ireland cricket team held the record for the lowest total in the T20 World Cup.

Chasing a modest target of 139, the Irish batters were bowled out for 68 against West Indies in Providence in 2010.

In the 2021 edition of the T20 World Cup, the Netherlands once again put in a disappointing batting performance as they were skittled out for 44 against Sri Lanka in a bowling-friendly Sharjah pitch.

As a result with scores of 39 and 44, the Netherlands now hold the record for registering the two lowest totals in T20 World Cup history.
