Cricket is a team sport and it is absolutely important to operate as a team to get the desirable results. Case in point, in order to win an ICC knockout tournament, a team must tackle the challenges by going through the different rounds and coming out on top as the winner in the final.
Moreover, the knockout format usually involves teams battling it out amongst themselves in a series of elimination matches. When a team suffers a defeat, it literally means that they are out of the tournament.
On top of that, teams work extremely hard to win games by outsmarting the opposition in limited-overs cricket. Winning an ICC knockout tournament is considered a spectacular achievement for a cricket team. Let’s know about the four teams with the highest win percentage in ICC Knockouts.
