England Highest Score in T20

241/3 vs New Zealand – 2019

The 1st highest team score of England in T20I is 241/3 against New Zealand at Napier on 8 Nov 2019. In this match, the Kiwis captain invited the opposition to bat first and that was his big mistake. While batting first, despite some early wickets, the century inning of Dawid Malan helped England to reach their highest team score of 241 for 3 in T20I. It took Malan only 48 deliveries to achieve the milestone and set up England's best T20I score, surpassing 230 against South Africa in 2016. England scored 182 runs for the third wicket in 74 deliveries with Eoin Morgan scoring 91 off 41 balls, his career-best performance in the shortest format of cricket. In response, New Zealand could stand tough against English bowlers and surrendered at the score of 165 in 16.5 overs.

230/8 vs South Africa – 2016

The 2nd highest score of England in T20I is 230 for 8 against South Africa at Mumbai in 2016. It was the 18th match of the T20 World Cup 2015/16 where England chased down the 230 targets as their highest successful chase in the history of T20I. Because of Jason Roy's explosive start and Joe Root's masterful performance that completely destroyed the African bowler’s attack. A line-up that included Quinton de Kock, Hashim Amla, and JP Duminy all had half-centuries to their names but wasted in the end. 

226/5 vs South Africa – 2020

The 3rd highest team score of England in T20I is 226 for 5 against South Africa at Centurion on 16 Feb 2020. While playing first, South Africa had a great start and top-order batters performed well, which helped to cross the 200+ marks on the scoreboard. Heinrich Klaasen struck 66 runs from 33 balls along, opening batsmen Temba Bavuma also played an important inning of 49 runs in the beginning. England successfully got the target with the help of half-centuries from Jos Buttler and Jonny Bairstow and the unbeaten 57 runs from Eoin Morgan.

221/5 vs Australia – 2018

The 4th highest team score of England in T20I came in the match against Australia at Birmingham on 27 Jun 2018. While batting first, England's Jos Buttler smashed the quickest half-century in T20I history. As a result of Buttler's 50 from just 22 balls, England scored their second-highest total in T20I matches while batting first. Before that, they made 241 against NZ in 2019. Australia batting lineup did not look comfortable except Aaron Finch, who struck 84 runs, and bowled out at 193 only in 19.4 over.

214/7 vs New Zealand – 2013

The 5th T20I highest team score of England came in the match against New Zealand at Auckland on 9 Feb 2013. New Zealand captain asked the opposition to bat first and all of the top and middle-order batsman of England played their game freely. So, there was a contribution from all top 6 batters that helped to reach a total of 214/7, this total was enough to challenge New Zealand. Then the bowler Stuart Broad and Steven Finn did not settle down any Kiwis batters and NZ could make only 174/9 and lost the match.
