India’s Ten Lowest Scores in T20 Internationals

The winner of the inaugural men’s T20 World Cup, team India is one of the victorious sides with the bat in the game’s shortest format.

Their modern-day duo Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma rule most of the T20 batting charts. They have also seen the T20 greats like MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina, Yuvraj Singh, and Virender Sehwag representing them.

Without any surprise, they are leading the charts of teams who have teamed up for the most 200+ T20 totals and added the most number of T20I hundreds by teams.

Even then, there have been rare instances where their batting line-up has failed.

The Men in Blue bundling out for 74 runs in 2008 against Australia in a T20 match in Melbourne is the lowest score of Team India in T20Is.

This table below will list the top ten lowest T20I team totals of team India.
