The maiden T20 world cup was held in South Africa in 2007. England reached the second round after beating Zimbabwe in the first round. But, in the second round, they couldn’t open their account. Who can forget Youraj Strom against Stuart Broad? England’s performance was not that good. Six 6s in one over demolished England’s Team. India set a total of 219 to chase.
In reply, England shies, England managed to score only 200. They were losing by 18 runs—a close one.
In the 2009 edition of the ICC T20 World Cup, England couldn’t progress to the semi-final of the world cup. They managed to win only one match against India. Both of the teams could progress further.
