The fifth edition of ICC World T20 in Bangladesh was a delight for the Cricket Statisticians. Bharath Seervi compiles the statistics of batting, bowling, power play, death overs, over-wise, team totals and lot more of the tournament that concluded on April 6th with Sri Lanka being the champions.

Team Totals:

The mark of 200 runs by a team in World T20 has been achieved 7 times — 5 of those in the first edition in South Africa, 1 each in 2009 and 2012. But this edition couldn’t mark any such instance like the one in 2010.

There were 3 matches where teams scored 190+ while chasing but the highest any of those could reach was 196 for 5 and it was South Africa vs England in the first inning.

Below is the table listing all the totals of over 190 in the tournament:
