The ninth edition of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup is set to be an exhilarating spectacle with amazing cricket throughout the event, where many records may tumble.

The event, jointly hosted by the USA and the West Indies, promises to deliver record-breaking performances and unforgettable moments. With 20 teams competing, fans are in for a treat.

Let’s take a look at some of the records that could be shattered in this upcoming edition of T20 World Cup.

Most Fours: A Battle of Titans

Indian batting maestro Virat Kohli is on the verge of breaking another record. With 103 fours, he’s just behind Sri Lanka’s Mahela Jayawardena, who leads with 111 fours.

But Kohli isn’t alone in this quest. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, with 91 fours, and Australia’s David Warner, with 86 fours, are also in the hunt.

Watching these top batters compete for the most fours will be an exciting subplot of the tournament.


Fastest Hundred: Will Gayle’s Record Fall?

West Indies legend Chris Gayle’s record for the fastest century in the Men’s T20 World Cup, with hundreds in 47 and 50 balls, is under serious threat.

Nepal’s Jan Nicol Loftie-Eaton recently set a new benchmark with a 33-ball century in overall T20 cricket.

Given the high strike rates and competitive spirit expected in this expanded tournament, fans might witness a new record for the fastest hundred.

Also, there are teams like Uganda, who are playing their first mega-event, so the batters from full nations would target these small teams to get their names in the record books.

Most Catches by a Fielder: A Close Race

South Africa’s AB de Villiers holds the record for most catches by a fielder in the T20 World Cup, with 23 catches. However, Australia’s David Warner, with 21 catches, is close behind.

Rohit Sharma and Australia’s Glenn Maxwell, both with 16 catches, are also in the running. This battle for fielding supremacy adds another layer of excitement to the tournament.

Australia’s Chance for a Historic Trifecta

Australia, led by Pat Cummins, has a unique opportunity to make history by becoming the first team to hold all ICC trophies in the men’s game simultaneously.

Having won the ICC Test Championship and ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in 2023, a win in the 2024 T20 World Cup would help Australia achieve the record feat.

Most Runs in a Single Edition: A Record Waiting to Be Broken

Virat Kohli currently holds the record for most runs in a single edition with 319 runs in the 2014 tournament.


However, his record may be in danger considering the fact that each team has the potential to play nine games in the tournament, featuring 20 teams.

With improved strike rates and more matches, batters have a great chance to break this coveted record.
