6 min read

07. Sri Lanka

Highest Total – 260

Sri Lanka scored their highest total in T20 format in the year 2007 in a match against Kenya. The Lankan batsmen scored a mammoth total of 260/6. The helpless Kenyan bowlers couldn’t do anything.

The opening legend, Sanath Jayasuriya started off pretty well by scoring 88 runs at a strike rate of 200. It is to be noted that the Kenyan batsmen were all bowled out for 88 that match and Sri Lanka won the match by 172 runs.

Lowest Total – 82

Sri Lanka has recorded their lowest total against their neighbor and Asian heavyweight champions, India. In February 2016, the Sri Lankan bowlers couldn’t withstand the Indian bowlers as they were all out for just 82 runs. Only two batsmen were found scoring in double digits at Visakhapatnam.

In the second innings, India chased that target with ease and won the game with 9 wickets in hand. Currently, Sri Lanka ranks at number 7 in T20I. They had won the World cup in 2014.
