Trivia and Miscellaneous Stats: 



# Only one match was brought to a result after being tied by bowl-out in ICC World T20 - India vs Pakistan in the inaugural edition. India won the bowl-out by 3-0. 

# In the inaugural edition of ICC World T20, Yuvraj Singh (Ind) batting against England became the first batsman to hit 6 sixes in an over in T20 format and the second do to so in International Cricket (Gibbs was the first). Yuvraj completed his half century in 12 balls which is the fastest in T20 cricket. 

# In the final of ICC World T20 2007, Sohail Tanvir batted for the first time in his International Career and hit a six off the first ball he faced. Thus, making him the first player to hit a six of the first ball off International career. 

# Ravindra Jadeja was hit for 6 sixes in 6 balls, not in the same over, by Shane Watson (last 3 balls of 4th over) and David Warner (first 3 balls of 10th over) at Bridgetown in 2009.
