Nepal defeated Mongolia by a massive difference of 237 runs, which is the biggest run margin ever in the history of T20 international cricket. This was possible because of the gigantic score Nepal put in ahead of Mongolia. However, it was Nepal’s Kushal Malla who turned the opposition’s bowling unit upside down.
This young batter scored the fastest hundred in just 34 balls, leaving Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, South African batter David Miller, and the Czech Republic’s Sudesh Wickramasekara behind. All three batters had a previous record of scoring hundred in just 35 balls.
Kushal played with a super explosive strike rate of 274, which included eight fours and twelve massive sixes, helping Sri Lanka reach an enormous total of 314/3. This was also written down as the highest total ever in the T20 Internationals. Not only did Nepal defeat Mongolia brutally, but they also claimed many records to their name, including the fastest T20I fifty and the most number of sixes in an innings in a T20I.
