It’s been four years since the riveting final between England and West Indies at the Eden Gardens in the final of the 2016 World T20 in India. The memories of Carlos Brathwaite smashing Ben Stokes for four sixes on the trot won’t be getting erased in a jiffy.

Plethora of matches in the format have taken place ever since. A number of eyes were on the Caribbean team, who boasts off some of the brutal power hitters. T20 is a format where the pendulum keeps swinging way too quickly.

Even as teams have snatched victories from the jaws of defeat, some sides have allowed games to slide away after a period of dominance. A number of records have been created during this phase. While a few of the teams raced to victories on a consistent basis, few of them couldn’t quite string together the triumphs.

In the article, we rate the teams after the 2016 World T20 on the basis of their performance: –

Sri Lanka faced early exit in the 2016 World T20 and their fortunes have only seen a downward trend. In 43 completed games, Lanka have only gotten 13 victories at a win percentage of 30.23. During this while, the Islanders defeated Bangladesh, Pakistan and South Africa three times each.

Australia and India managed to beat them in 13 out of 16 matches. Even on home conditions, Sri Lanka have been horrendous, to say the least. They have only gotten four wins in 16 games. Their only major success was the 3-0 victory over Pakistan in 2019 at the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore.
