A few years ago scoring around 250 runs in 50 overs was considered a decent score. And when T20 cricket started, peoples would have expected something around 120 or 130 runs in an innings to be an ideal score. But the modern generation batsmen have proved everyone wrong and now even 200 looks a normal score nowadays. The new rules, powerful bats and smaller boundaries have helped the batsmen to score huge runs in the shortest format of the game.
Here we are presenting to you top 10 highest scores in a T20 match:
10. South Africa: 229/4 vs England (2016): Highest team totals in T20
This match will always be remembered as one of the best matches in T20 World Cup. On a good batting pitch the Proteas took full advantage of the conditions and scored a massive 229 runs with the help of fifties from Hashim Amla, de Kock and Duminy. However, their efforts were not enough as England chased down the total in the end with two balls remaining.
