Top 5 Lowest Team Totals in the World Cup 2024

Cricket's most explosive players have always been on display in the T20 World Cup, which promises to be an exciting exhibition of close calls. But in between all the pyrotechnics, there have also been plenty of batting collapses throughout the competition, where teams have given up under duress.

Other incidents happened in the 2024 T20 World Cup. In this blog, we'll examine the top 5 lowest team totals in more detail, as well as the circumstances behind these startling falls.

Top 5 Lowest Team Totals in the World Cup 2024

Rank Teams Score VS Date Venue
1 Uganda 58/10 Afghanistan Jun 03, 2024 Guyana National Stadium, Guyana
2 Sri Lanka 77/10 South Africa Jun 03, 2024 Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York
3 Papua New Guinea 77/10 Uganda Jun 05, 2024 Guyana National Stadium, Guyana
4 Ireland 96/10 India Jun 05, 2024 Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, New York
5 Nepal 106/10 Netherlands Jun 04, 2024 Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium, Dallas

5. Nepal vs Netherlands

Another major collapse occurred during the Nepal vs Netherlands match at Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Dallas. Nepal found it difficult to contain the well-organized Dutch bowling assault while batting first. The Netherlands' best bowler was Fred Klaassen, who took three vital wickets while keeping a tight line and length. In 31.4 overs, Nepal was limited to 106 runs. The batters from the Netherlands then attacked the chase cautiously and won with relative ease, highlighting their prowess in the competition this year.

4. Ireland vs India

Ireland's chances of leaving a lasting impression at the 2024 World Cup were severely damaged when they lost to India in New York. The spin tandem of Kuldeep Yadav and Ravindra Jadeja proved formidable for the Irish squad. With figures of 4 for 20, Jadeja proved to be too much for the Irish batters with his subtle variations and perfect precision. In 28.1 overs, Ireland's innings came to a close with 96 all out. India then showed the depth of their batting lineup and easily chased the mark, maintaining their excellent tournament performance.

3. Papua New Guinea vs Uganda

Two days later, in the same location, Uganda was in peril once more. This time, Uganda's bowlers were aimed against Papua New Guinea (PNG). PNG was bowled out for the same score of 77 while they were batting first, which was the same outcome as Sri Lanka two days earlier. The bowlers from Uganda, captained by the youthful phenom Brian Masaba, capitalised on the advantageous circumstances. Masaba's four wickets at eighteen runs were a key factor in PNG's restriction. After their earlier disaster, Uganda was able to pursue the target and earn a much-needed victory.

2. Sri Lanka vs South Africa

It was a day of misery for the island country of Sri Lanka when they played South Africa in New York on the same day but across the Atlantic. Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje of South Africa put on an amazing show of fast bowling at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. Rabada took five wickets for 19 runs, his pace and precision rendering the Sri Lankan batters counterproductive. In just 24.2 overs, the whole Sri Lankan squad was bowled out for just 77. The chase was therefore easily won by South Africa's batsmen, who dominated the match.

1. Uganda vs Afghanistan

Uganda, which was playing in its first T20 World Cup, made a terrible start to their 2024 tournament as they were bowled out for just 58 runs against Afghanistan. Afghanistan's first-inning total was 183/5. Uganda struggled to chase down the runs, with five batsmen scoring in the single digits and four batters being bowled for no wickets. Afghanistan won handily, with Fazalhaq Farooqi scoring a five-fer.
