England’s defeats in bilateral T20I series since WT20 2016
Out of all T20Is, England have won 68 matches while losing 58. Five matches have ended without a result.
England were on a roll in the 2016 T20 World Cup held in India. They ended up at the second spot in super 10 group one with three wins. The team then went on to beat New Zealand by 7 wickets in the first semi-final but suffered a dramatic loss against West Indies in the final at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata by 4 wickets.
Post that, the team has been sensational in T20 cricket and has won almost all of their fixtures. However, there have been a few glitches along the way. Interestingly, all of the team’s series defeats in the format have come against India, which says a lot about the brilliance of Team India in the shortest format of the game and the competitive edge between the two teams in T20I cricket.
