West Indies 258/5
South Africa 259/4
These would have been decent scores for an ODI game two decades ago. The South Africans smashed those 259 runs in 18.5 overs!
In total, 517 runs were scored, the most in a T20 game, including 35 sixes, the most in a T20 international and two fewer than the most in any T20 match.
One has to feel sorry for the bowlers. Their batsmen made the highest T20I score in history and the record was broken in about one hour. Reminds me of that incredible ODI between Australia and South Africa. The Aussies made the highest ODI score in history ... and then lost a few hours later.
The South Africans rarely win tournaments but they can never be discounted in a single match. True to their spirit, they lost today; thus, losing the series 2-1.
