It is important and interesting to note that Pakistan - 2009 ICC World Twenty20 champions - are the only coutry to have managed 50 victories.

What is also interesting is that the team in third place in the list - Lancashire - have never won a Twenty20 tournament. While Chennai Super Kings, Hampshire and Mumbai Indians are multiple champions, the list highlights how good Lancashire are at getting to the final stages, but not getting over the line - exactly what they did this year at Edgbaston.

Statistics correct as at 23rd September 2014.
