Top 10 Highest match aggregates in T20 Internationals

T20 cricket format is meant to be invented for batsmen. Or at least that is the perception public gets looking at the stats. In just 20 overs per side, batsmen try to score as many as possible runs in T20 regardless of the fear to lose wicket and majority of the time they succeed making the format a batting-dominant one. Although some of the best bowlers also tend to do much better job than many of the rest. But in the end it is fair enough to call this format a batting favored one. While we all know that there would be a lot of runs coming in a T20 game, sometimes the things get really unexpected in terms of highest match aggregates.

In a domestic T20 leagues game one can expect both teams crossing the 200 runs mark in their respective 20 overs however at International level it is rare. South Africa was beaten by England during the T20 world cup 2016 despite setting a target of 230. It was a shocking performance by the English side as they chased down one of the biggest T20 total in a world cup. A total of 459 runs were scored during the match – third most in the highest match aggregates list. Before this West Indies and South Africa were involved in a t20 game in 2015 that ended with a total of 467 runs in total – the second highest match aggregate in T20I history.

Things get more interesting when we speak of the ongoing West Indies vs India T20 series. The first game that was eventually won by West Indies by just 1 runs witnessed the highest match aggregates in T20 international history. A total of 489 runs were scored by both teams in 40 overs including two fastest hundreds and two fifties. Had India chased down the target – that they missed by a single run, it would also have been the highest chase in T20I history.
