The craze of the T20 format is increasing rapidly across the globe. There’s no denying that it is the most exciting format of the three. This can be gauged from the fact that where ODI and Test World Cups are held in 4 years, the 20-20 World Cup is played every two years.
Many players have also retired from one format in order to play more T20 leagues across the globe. Some cricketers also believe that due to the rise in the T20 format, the significance of the ODI format is diminishing.
Many global franchises are also working hard on this format and as a result, many domestic leagues are being organized around the world. But do you know that some embarrassing records have been made in the shortest format that hardly any player or team would like to break?
On that note, let’s take a look at the top 3 lowest scores in T20 history:
3. Lesotho vs Uganda, 26 runs (2021)
The third-lowest score in the history of T20 cricket was scored by Lesotho in an International Men’s 20–20 World Cup Sub Regional Africa Qualifier Group A match. Lesotho won the toss and decided to bat but little did they know that they would create an embarrassing record in the history of cricket.
Lesotho’s team came out to start the innings and got all out after scoring 26 runs in 12.4 overs. Only captain Sameer Patel scored the maximum runs for the team and that too only 10 runs. Uganda’s Dinesh Nakrani took 6 wickets for 7 runs in his 4 overs. Uganda won by scoring 27 runs in just 3.4 overs in their innings.
