It’s been really in rarest of rare matches that India’s 8th wicket pair had to come out in the open playing a memorable knocks at World T20 Championship. Most of the times, India’s formidable batting line up manage the task of scoring big runs. Until now, a total of 5 T20 World Cups have already been held at various venues but in only 8 occasions did India have lost 7 or more wickets in a match. Ace off-spinner Harbhajan Singh had shown superb patience and experience down the order and was involved in 5 times batting for the 8th wicket partnership.

The memory of India-Australia low scoring match at Bridgetown during T20 World Cup 2010 is still afresh in everyone’s mind. Harbhajan Singh and Rohit Sharma helped India reach a three-figure-mark when at one stage the team looked miserable at 50 for 7. But duo played really some aggressive cricket managing 47 runs in just 4 overs. But in the subsequent editions of the World T20 Championships India couldn’t manage much runs for its 8th wicket stand. Interestingly, after 2010, there are only two times when India had lost 7 or more wickets in World T20 match. Here is the complete statistics.
