Sri Lanka registered a record nine-wicket win over Netherlands as they bundled the Dutch side out for the lowest ever Twenty20 International score and second lowest in any T20 at Chittagong in the ICC W0rld T20 2014. Quite predictably, with such a thumping win, Sri Lanka have shattered many records. The Australian born Tom Cooper was the only batsman to cross double figures for Netherlands as he made 16 during his innings. Rest of the batsmen showed no resistance whatsoever. Below is a detailed stats report of the various records created and some interesting numbers that emerged out of the match.

# Netherlands now have scored the lowest T20I score. The previous lowest was by Kenya when they were bowled out for 56 by Afghanistan in September 2013.  It is the second lowest overall. Tripura had scored 30 against Maharashtra in 2009.

Sri Lanka have registered the biggest victory in terms of balls remaining. Sri Lanka won with 90 balls remaining. The previous best was by Ireland when they won with 76 balls to spare against Kenya in March 2012.

# This also was the shortest ever completed innings. They faced only 63 deliveries. The previous record was held by South Africa when they were bowled for 100 in 74 deliveries against Pakistan in March 2013.

# Sri Lanka’s Lasith Malinga is now the highest wicket-taker in World T20 competition with 36 wickets. Before the start of the match, he was joint top with Saeed Ajmal with 34 wickets. Meanwhile, another Sri Lankan, Ajantha Mendis has also moved up to second on highest wicket-takers list in World T20s with 35 wickets.

# Netherlands have scored their lowest powerplay score with 15/4 in six overs. Ironically, in the previous match they had registered the highest ever powerplay score in T20Is with 91/1 in six overs.

# It was the seventh occasion in T20Is when both the openers of the side were dismissed for a duck.

# Sri Lanka now hold a unique record of the highest and lowest runs across formats.
