All-out for 100 runs or below: Docile pitches at T20 World Cup 2024 takes the pie by some margin

In the ongoing tournament, it has already been 10 times when teams have been bowled out before reaching triple digits.

The T20 World Cup of low totals! The T20 World Cup 2024 can be easily given this name based on the low runs being scored in this edition of the tournament. The USA and West Indies’ co-hosted tournament has already seen teams getting all-out for less than 100 runs the most times and the group stage of the tournament is not even over.

Tough T20 World Cup for batters

Ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024, the most below-100 totals were scored in two other occasions, in 2014 and 2021. On both occasions, teams were bowled out below 100 runs eight times. However, in the ongoing tournament, it has already been 10 times when teams have been bowled out before reaching triple digits.

Teams bowled out for 100 or below in Men’s T20 World Cup

  • 10* – 2024
  • 8 – 2014, 2021
  • 4 – 2010
  • 3 – 2007, 2009, 2012
  • 2 – 2016
  • 1 – 2022

Why so many low scores?

The slow nature of pitches in the USA have made stroke play difficult for batters, bringing bowlers into the game. Teams have struggled to score runs on uneven pitches which have offered inconsistent bounce. And hence, we see so many scores below 100 runs in the T20 World Cup 2024.
