T20 World Cup match in which 6 batsmen of a team were out on 0


New Delhi. T20 cricket is considered a batsman’s game. In this format, bowlers are seen on ‘backfoot’. In almost every match, a flurry of fours and sixes are hit and a lot of runs are scored. It is common to score more than 200 or even 250 runs in this format of cricket these days. In the year 2023, a score of more than 300 was made in the match between Nepal and Mongolia in the Asian Games. The Nepalese team scored 314 runs for three wickets and won the match by a huge margin of 273 runs. It is possible that from June 1 next month, fans will also get to see matches with 300+ scores in the T20 World Cup 2024 (ICC T20 World Cup 2024).

However, amidst this ‘domination’ of batsmen, there have been some matches in T20I in which batsmen and not bowlers were seen struggling for runs. These matches have been ‘lowscoring’ due to the weak performance of the batsmen and the help given to the bowlers by the wicket. Most of these matches are of amateur teams of world cricket. Talking about T20 World Cup, in the 8 editions so far, twice a team has been out on a score of less than 50. The interesting thing is that both the times this has happened with the Netherlands team and both the times this condition has happened in the match against Sri Lanka.

In the 2014 T20 World Cup match in Chittagong, the Netherlands team was all out for 39 runs in 10.3 overs and in the 2021 T20 World Cup match in Sharjah, the Netherlands team was all out for 44 runs in 10 overs. In both the matches, Sri Lankan team had achieved the target even before 10 overs. In this sequence, there was a match in the T20 World Cup in which 6… yes 6 batsmen of a team were out on 0. Top 4 batsmen were included in these batsmen. At one point in this match, the team’s account was not opened even after the fall of three wickets. This happened in the match between Kenya and New Zealand in the first T20 World Cup of 2007 in South Africa.

Kenya lost 4 wickets in the first two overs.
On 12 September 2007, in this match in Durban, while batting first, the series of wickets of Kenya started falling from the second ball itself. Morris Owuma and Tanmay Mishra were out in the first over of Shane Bond, while David Obuya and captain Steve Tikolo were out in the second over of the innings bowled by Mark Gillespie. None of these four batsmen could open an account. The fall of wickets continued in the subsequent overs and Nehemia and the last batsman Peter Ongondo were also out for 0.

Has hit 6 sixes in 6 balls twice in T20I, made fifty in 9 balls, will show his talent in the World Cup!

Gillespie took maximum four wickets
Among the six batsmen with 0, only Collins Obuya, Thomas Obuyo (18-18 runs), Jimmy Kamade (14) and Rajesh Budhiya (11) were able to reach double figures. Kenya team was out for 73 runs in 16.5 overs. For the Kiwi team, Mark Gillespie took maximum 4 wickets while Shane Bond, Kiss Martin and captain Daniel Vettori took two wickets each. In reply, New Zealand achieved the target of 74 runs by losing one wicket in just 7.4 overs. Lou Vincent (27) was the only batsman to be out. Brendon McCullum remained unbeaten on 16 and Peter Fulton remained unbeaten on 21 runs. This time 20 teams are participating in the T20 World Cup 2024, out of which 12 are ICC full member teams and 8 are associate member teams. In such a situation, there can be a flurry of records in the competition between veteran teams and new teams.

Team India could never win against two teams in T20 WC, never lost against 4 teams

8 batsmen have been out for 0 in an innings of T20I.
In an innings of the Kenya-New Zealand match of the T20 World Cup, six batsmen were out for ‘duck’ but in a T20I match, 8 batsmen were out for 0 in an innings. In the match, 9 batsmen were out on 0 in both the innings combined. In the 2019 Continental Cup match against Czech Republic, 8 batsmen of Turkey (Czech Republic Vs Turkey) were out on ‘zero’. Batting first, Czech Republic team scored 278 runs for 4 wickets in 20 overs with the help of Sudesh Wickramasekara’s century and Sumit Pokhriyal’s 79 runs. Team’s batsman Shawn Dalton was also out on 0.

In response, Türkiye’s batting fell apart like a house of cards. The entire team was reduced to 21 runs in 8.3 overs. Apart from the starting four batsmen Hasan Helva, Serde Kansoy, Recep Ulutuna and Ahmet Dusak, Sereken Kizilikaya, Ali Kos, Hasan Alta and Tunahan Ulutuna also could not open the account. Mehmet Sert was the only batsman of the team to reach double digits (12).
