Out on 99 runs in a T20I, Alex Hales, first and only batsman
While dismissals on 99 runs are more common in Tests and ODI’s, there is only one that exists in T20 internationals where a batsman is out on 99 runs.
This record is with England’s batsman Alex Hales. He was bowled by Rampaul, in a match against West Indies in Jun 2012, when he was on 99. Alex Hales missed England’s first T20I century by just one run, but his impressive 99 runs helped lead the home team to a decisive 7-wicket win.
He is also the first and only batsman out for 99 in an ODI and a T20I.
Alex Hales came close to scoring England’s first T20I hundred, but his 99 runs in a record-breaking 159-run partnership with Ravi Bopara led the home team to a dominant 7-wicket victory against West Indies at Trent Bridge, with their highest successful T20I chase.
Hales’ performance at his home ground was a match-winner, surpassing Eoin Morgan’s 85 not out against South Africa in Johannesburg as England’s best in T20I. This solidified his spot for England’s World T20 title defense in Sri Lanka later this year. He was out on the last ball of the second-to-last over, trying to hit Ravi Rampaul to the leg side. Bopara couldn’t hold on until the end either, as he was caught at long-off for 59 off 44 balls. But Morgan secured the win with two deliveries left, aided by a misfield at mid-off.
