This article delves into the teams that have etched their names in T20 World Cup history by securing the most victories.

Sri Lanka: The Kings of Consistency

Sri Lanka reigns supreme when it comes to match wins in the T20 World Cup. Boasting a win percentage of a staggering 61.76%, they have secured 31 victories in just 51 matches. This dominance can be attributed to their ability to perform under pressure, evident in their title-winning campaign in 2014 under the leadership of Lasith Malinga. They displayed similar grit in the 2012 edition, reaching the finals but falling short against the mighty West Indies.

Following closely behind Sri Lanka are the passionate Pakistanis. Often referred to as the ‘Men in Green,’ they have emerged victorious in 28 out of their 47 World Cup matches, translating to a win percentage of 60.63%. This consistency is even more impressive considering their participation in every edition since the tournament’s inception in 2007. Their recent success cannot be ignored, having reached the coveted semi-finals in both the 2021 and 2022 editions held in the UAE and Australia respectively.

However, their win percentage of 62.50% reflects their undeniable prowess in the shortest format. Interestingly, their sole title win in 2021 stands in stark contrast to their achievements in other formats.
