The two lowest-scoring innings have both come across Sri Lanka, the lowest was 39 set by the Netherlands in 2014 and seven days later Sri Lanka bowled New Zealand out for 60!

Lowest Match Aggregate

Given the Netherlands batted first in the above record when only scoring 39, it's no surprise that the match is also the lowest-scoring aggregate with Sri Lanka hitting the needed 40 runs for a match total of 79 runs, the only match in this tournament ever to have under 100 runs.
