List of Records Break by Nepal Cricket Team During Their Massive Win

Nepal smashes Afghanistan's previous record of 278/3 against Ireland by scoring a whopping 314/3 in a T20I. Rohit Sharma and David Miller's joint record of 35 balls for the quickest century in a T20I was broken by Nepali cricketer KUSHAL MALLA. Dipendra Singh Airee of Nepal scored 50 points in just 9 balls! WORLD RECORD FOR T20I.

Today is Mongolia's first time playing men's cricket. It should be noted that Mongolia was only recognised as an associate side by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2021.

On Sunday, Nepal's second game versus the Maldives will take place in Group 'A'. Nepal will advance to the quarterfinal if it maintains first place in Group "A".

Highest Team Total

Prior to this, no team had ever amassed 300 runs in an innings in men's T20 cricket. The first occurrence of this was Nepal's 314 for 3 versus Mongolia in the Asian Games. Prior to this, Afghanistan and the Czech Republic both scored 278 against Ireland and Turkey, respectively, in T20 matches. In men's T20 international matches, these are also the top totals.

Most Sixes hit by a Team

The number of sixes struck by Nepal hitters in this game was 26, which is a team record for a T20 international. The previous high score was 22, achieved by Afghanistan vs Ireland in Dehradun in 2019 and by West Indies versus South Africa in Centurion earlier the same year. The 23 sixes struck by Balkh Legend hitters against Kabul Zwanan in the Afghanistan Premier League in 2018 are surpassed by these, making them the most in any T20 game.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has granted international status to cricket matches at the Asian Games for the first time. The highly anticipated men's cricket sport at the Asian Games 2023 is set to start on September 27, which will be a historic day when India competes in the event for the very first time.

With India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Afghanistan among the participating teams, the event promises tremendous cricket action in the heart of China.
