ICC Men's T20 World Cup Records

Highest Win Margin

Sri Lanka beat Kenya by 172 runs after setting them a target of 261 and then bowling them out for a total of 88 during the 2007 tournament.

Highest Innings Total

The 260-6 set by Sri Lanka in the previously mentioned record is also the highest-scoring innings, some thirty runs more than the next best which England (230-8) set in 2016.

Highest Match Aggregate

At the Wankhede Stadium in 2016, the match between England and South Africa set the highest aggregate score, England with 230 and South Africa with 229 for a total of 459 runs!

Lowest Innings Total

The two lowest-scoring innings have both come across Sri Lanka, the lowest was 39 set by the Netherland 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.
