The Records That Could Be Broken In the ICC T20 World Cup 2016:
If we compare the first World Cup played in 2007 to 2016, the game has a complete turnaround of how cricket use to be. Batsmen playing reverse sweeps, or some unorthodox shots has changed — the definition of textbook cricket. On the other side, bowlers instead to Yorker and pace, are concentrating more on mix-up deliveries.
Cricket has in this new era changed and so as the records. The average team total in ODI are being scored in T20 and so as the new records being written in this innovative form of cricket.
So, we bring you the records that could be broken in the ICC T20 world cup 2016 which is to be hosted in India.
The Records That Could Be Broken In the ICC T20 World Cup 2016
1. Most Cup Title
From 2007 to 2014, so far 5 titles have been played and every time 5 countries have hosted their flags into the finals.
2012: West Indies,
2014: Sri Lanka
It will be interesting to see, who will win the same T20 WC title for the second time?
2. Most sixes in T20I Career
The game of T20 without sixes doesn’t add punch into the entertainment. As, the New Zealand’s furious ex-captain Brendon McCullum holds the record of most sixes in T20I career. He’s been followed by the mighty Chris Gayle.
As we know, Brendon retired from International cricket — it will be interesting, who all breaks his most sixes records.
Record Holder: Brendon McCullum (91 sixes)
Possible Record Breaker:
Chris Gayle (87 sixes)
Shane Watson (76 sixes)
David Warner (73 sixes)
3. Match Aggregate Score
The record total stand for the match played between South Africa and West Indies in 2015.
South Africa gave a target of 232 and the match was being chased by WI — thanks to Chris Gayle quick-fire 90.
The Total match aggregate score was 467 runs.
4. Most Sixes In An Inning
The match played between Netherland and Ireland, was a beauty in their own terms. It was seen raining sixing in the inning played by Dutch. The total of 19 sixes were being hit in an inning, the record still stands as most sixes in an inning till date.
5. Fastest Hundred
As we all know, the format has changed the way cricket use to be. The evolution of Rahul Dravid of 1 in 35 balls to AB’s 100 in 31 picturize the whole story.
The record for the fastest hundred stands to Richard Levi of South Africa for scoring 45 ball century. Well, there are many batsmen, who’re capable of breaking this record.
6. Most runs from boundaries
Aaron Finch holds the record of scoring most runs through boundaries against Southampton. This was the match were he scored 156 runs from which 128 runs were scored through boundaries.
7. Man of the Match awards
The record stands to Shahid Afridi with 9 MOTM awards in 80 games played. He’s been backed by the Caribbean superstar Chris Gayle’s 8 MOTM awards in just 45 games.
8. Player High scores
The highest score stands for Brendon McCullum, who scored 123 runs in just 58 balls against Bangladesh in 2012 T20 WC. Again, Chris Gayle stands second with 117 runs in 57 balls.
9. Most Ducks
This is not the kind of thing people or the batsmen likes to see. This record doesn’t make a difference in ODI’s and Test, but when come to T20 ducks do makes a huge impacts.
The record stands to Shahid Afridi and T Dilshan both with 5 ducks each.
