It’s rare to see almost every batsman in the line-up getting a hit in the middle in a T20 match. As T20 is just about 20 overs, most of the innings get over with five or six wickets down. Also, it’s rare to find most of the batsmen reaching double figures during the innings.
However, in World T20, it has happened twice that an innings has a record 8 batsmen reaching double figures. Pakistan and England are the two teams to have done so in World T20.
Pakistan achieved this record first when they faced Scotland at Durban in 2007 World T20. Pakistan scored 171/9 with 8 of their batsmen reaching double figures with the highest scorer being Younis Khan who made 41. Pakistan won the match by 51 runs.
The second instance happened in England innings against South Africa at Chittagong in 2014. Chasing 196 for a win, England were restricted to 193/7 with eight of their batsmen reaching double. Alex Hales was the highest scorer in the England innings with 38.
