In the inaugural World T20 in 2007, West Indies earned the dubious distinction of conceded the most extras (28) in a league match against South Africa at Johannesburg. West Indies conceded 23 wides, one no-ball and 4 legbyes.
The extras helped South Africa to chase down a target of 206 with more than two overs to spare. It also led to Chris Gayle’s brilliant 117 going in vain.
Ironically, South Africa came close to overhauling that dubious distinction in the 2016 World Cup Super 10 clash against England where the Proteas conceded 26 (20 wides, 6 leg byes) extras at Mumbai on March 18. England chased down the target of 230 with two wickets and two balls to spare.
