Since the last ICC WT20 which concluded in October 2012 Sri Lanka have been the outstanding side, winning 72.7% of their games. Pakistan are next on that list closely followed by South Africa, with 64.2% and 63.6% win records respectively.

England have the poorest record during this period, winning on only 36.4% of occasions, while Australia are only narrowly ahead with 44.4%. This is despite both averaging the highest runs per over during this time scale, granted that stat is likely to have been influenced by the types of surfaces played on.

The West Indies average the lowest number of runs per over at 7.3 and further to the smallest amount of runs per wicket (22), it should though be reminded that wickets in the Caribbean tend to be slow in nature.

It is worth noting that during this period Pakistan played more games than anyone (14). England, New Zealand and Sri Lanka also enjoyed regular exposure to T20 cricket, competing in 12 games apiece.

At the other end of the scale India participated in just five games, however the IPL does at least ensure their personnel have been exposed plenty of high intensity T20 cricket.
