Ind vs Nz: India won the third and last T20I against New Zealand by 168 runs on Wednesday in Ahmedabad to win the series 2-1. Additionally, in a matchup between two consecutive members of the configuration, the Men in Blue recorded the largest victory margin in terms of run differential.
After deciding to bat first, India put 234 runs on the board thanks to Shubman Gill’s first T20I century. And substantial changes from Rahul Tripathi, Suryakumar Yadav, and captain Hardik Pandya. During the chase, the tourists were brought down to 7-4 thanks to some excellent bowling from Pandya and Arshdeep Singh.
As the Kiwis were bunted out for a pitiful score of 66, giving India a come-from-behind series victory, Umran Malik and Shivam Mavi also enjoyed themselves.
Here, we examine the following three T20I match victories with the largest margin of runs.
1. India beat Ireland by 143 runs (2018):
India destroyed the hosts by 143 runs in the second of two T20Is they played against Ireland in 2018. India scored 213 runs in the allotted 20 overs after Ireland won the toss and decided to field first.
The best player was KL Rahul, who scored an astonishing 70 runs off only 36 deliveries. Manish Pandey and Hardik Pandya added the final adjustments after Suresh Raina scored 69 runs.
Ireland’s chase hadn’t really got underway since they kept losing wickets, and the hosts were finally bowled out for a total of 70.
Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal both took three wickets, and Umesh Yadav, Siddharth Kaul, and Pandya provided strong assistance. KL Rahul’s spectacular knock earned him the title of player of the game.
2. Pakistan beat West Indies by 143 runs (2018):
In 2018, West Indies traveled to Pakistan for a three-match T20I series. The first match was embarrassing for the guests as they were defeated by 143 runs.
In their opening innings of play, the hosts scored 203 runs thanks to the efforts of Fakhar Zaman, Hussain Talat, Sarfaraz Ahmed, and Shoaib Malik.
West Indies’ disastrous chase ended with them being bunted out for 60, their previous lowest score in T20Is.
Although the bowling was excellent, the hitting and demeanor were just terrible. With the ball, Mohammed Nawaz, Mohammad Amir, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali, Shoaib Malik, and Hussain Talat all performed admirably.

3. England beat West Indies by 137 runs (2019):
Consequently, West Indies and their supporters are included on this list for the 2nd time as a result of their T20I loss to England in 2019 by 137 runs.
Sam Billings’ outstanding 87-run innings and Joe Root’s fifty helped England score 182 runs. With stats of 2-29, Fabian Allen was the top bowler for the West Indies.
West Indies did not turn up in answer, put on a somewhat abysmal performance, and were ultimately pitched out for 45. The English cricketers troubled a lineup full of T20I stars, with only two batsmen managing to reach double digits.
Chris Jordan was the best bowler, turning in incredible figures of 4-6. The other bowlers all performed admirably, but Billings was named the game’s best performer.
