Each time Angelo Mathews scored 50, Sri Lanka has lost T20 International


Stats Highlights- England v Sri Lanka, Delhi

2nd time Sri Lanka has failed to qualify to the Semi-Final stage of World T20s. Sri Lanka qualified to the semi-final stage in four consecutive World T20s from 2009 and 2014. They were the champions in the last edition in 2014 and runners up in 2009 and 2012.

4 fifties for Angelo Mathews in T20Is. He scored unbeaten 73* at Delhi against England. But he has the dubious record of Sri Lanka losing each match when he scores a fifty plus score in T20I.
