NEW DELHI: There was carnage at Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field in Hangzhou, China, as the Nepal cricket team achieved many remarkable feats against Mongolia in the Asian Games T20I tournament on Wednesday. The Nepal batters showcased their dominance and made a mockery of the opposition bowlers with their exceptional performances.
Nepal became the first team ever to score a staggering 300 runs in T20I history, posting a mammoth total of 314 for 3 in just 20 overs. This surpassed the previous record held by Afghanistan, who had scored 278/3 against Ireland. The Nepal batsmen exhibited exceptional skills and displayed a fearless approach throughout the innings.

One of the standout performances came from Nepal batter Dipendra Singh Airee, who etched his name in the record books by scoring the fastest ever T20I fifty in just 9 balls. This incredible achievement broke the previous record set by India’s legendary all-rounder Yuvraj Singh, in 12 balls against England, during the 2007 T20 World Cup. Dipendra’s blistering knock showcased his immense talent and ability to score boundaries at will.
Not to be outdone, another Nepal batter, Kushal Malla, took the cricketing world by storm with his phenomenal century. Malla reached the milestone in a record-breaking 34 balls, surpassing the previous joint record held by India’s Rohit Sharma and South Africa’s David Miller, who achieved it in 35 deliveries. Malla’s unbeaten knock of 137 off just 50 deliveries included an astonishing 12 sixes and 8 fours, leaving the opposition bowlers helpless.
Adding to the records, Dipendra Singh also set the record for the highest strike rate in an innings, an astonishing 520.00. His unbeaten knock of 52 off 10 balls, which included eight maximums, showcased his ability to score quick runs and dominate the opposition.
The Nepal cricket team’s historic performance against Mongolia in the Asian Games T20I will be etched in the annals of cricketing history.
