Nepal’s historic victory sets new records at Asian Games T20

In a momentous achievement at the Asian Games held in Hangzhou, China, Nepal’s cricket team secured an extraordinary victory against Mongolia, marking a historic milestone in T20 international cricket. Nepal’s resounding win, with a staggering margin of 273 runs, not only surpassed their previous record but also established a new standard in the format’s history.

Nepal’s batting lineup proved to be an unstoppable force, setting an imposing target of 314 runs for Mongolia, a milestone that had never been crossed in T20I cricket before. The standout performance came from the young prodigy, Kushal Malla, who blazed his way to a century in just 34 balls. This remarkable achievement made Malla the record holder for the fastest T20I century ever recorded.

Malla’s incredible innings featured a remarkable tally of 12 sixes and eight fours, setting a new benchmark for the fastest T20I century. Not to be overshadowed, Dipendra Singh Airee showcased his extraordinary power-hitting abilities, reaching his half-century in a mere nine balls, shattering Yuvraj Singh’s previous record. Airee’s explosive knock included an astonishing eight sixes out of the ten balls he faced.

Nepal’s aggressive batting display was further evident as they smashed an incredible 26 sixes during their innings, surpassing Afghanistan’s previous record of 22. This dazzling exhibition of hitting power propelled Nepal to achieve their highest-ever team total in T20 cricket.

In response, Mongolia’s batting lineup struggled immensely against Nepal’s formidable bowling attack, managing only 41 runs before being dismissed. Nepal’s bowlers, including Karan KC, Avinash Bohra, and Sandeep Lamichhane, each claimed two wickets, leaving Mongolia in disarray.

Nepal’s historic victory not only set a new record but also marked a significant moment for Nepal’s cricket team as they continue to demonstrate their growing strength and potential on the international stage.
