T20 World Cup Key Stats, Records: Most Runs, Wickets, Sixes, Ducks, Wins, 50s, 100s


T20 World Cup Key Records, Stats: The ICC T20 World Cup 2024 tournament, to be held in USA and West Indies, is just around the corner. The 2024 edition of ICC T20 World Cup is notable for featuring 20 teams, the highest number of participants ever in the tournament’s history.

The Indian cricket team, who last won the T20 World Cup in 2007 under MS Dhoni’s captaincy, has not been able to secure the title since then. Fans are hopeful that Rohit Sharma’s Men in Blue will break the streak and win the prestigious ICC title this time.

For 11 years, India has failed to win an ICC title across formats, making it even more crucial for the Indian team to secure the T20 World Cup this time. This tournament is particularly significant as it is likely the final T20 World Cup for Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli, who fans hope will have a dream farewell with a championship victory.

India plays a warm-up game against Bangladesh on Saturday (June 1) and then begin their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign with a match against Ireland on Wednesday (June 5).
