Nepal enter their name in record book yesterday in Asian games
🦾Nepal smash records with fastest century and fifty in men's T20Is🤳
Nepal's victory by a massive 273 runs against Mongolia is the biggest margin by runs in all T20s✍️
Nepal's batters smashed a number of records in the opening match of the Men's Asian Games against Mongolia in Hangzhou, in a record 273-run win. Here is a quick look at some of the major records broken by them.
0 - Number of times a team had scored 300 in a men's T20 innings before this. Nepal's 314 for 3❤️ against Mongolia in the Asian Games is the first such instance. The highest T20 total before this was 278, scored by Afghanistan against Ireland in 2019 and by Czech Republic against Turkey also in 2019. These are also the highest totals in men's T20 internationals.
34 - Balls taken by Nepal's Kushal Malla to reach his hundred, which is the fastest in T20Is. The previous record of 35 balls was jointly held by David Miller, Rohit Sharma and Czech Republic's Sudesh Wickramasekara.
9 - Balls taken by Nepal's Dipendra Singh Airee to hit a fifty. Airee's innings featured eight sixes and no fours. This is the fastest fifty in all T20s, beating the previous record of 12 balls, which was jointly held by Yuvraj Singh, Chris Gayle and Hazratullah Zazai. While Yuvraj's fifty came in a T20I, the other two were scored in T20s.
273 - Nepal's margin of win against Mongolia. This is the highest margin in terms of runs in all T20s. The previous biggest margin was Czech Republic's 257-run win against Turkey in 2019.
520 - Airee's strike rate in his unbeaten knock of 52 off 10 balls. This is the first instance in T20s when a batter has scored at a 500-plus strike rate in an innings of 10 or more balls. The previous best was Malcolm Waller's strike rate of 430 in a ten-ball innings against Matabeleland Tuskers in 2016 Zimbabwe's domestic T20 competition.
26 - Sixes hit by Nepal batters in this match - the most in a T20 international by a team.
The previous highest were 22, by Afghanistan against Ireland in Dehradun in 2019 and by West Indies against South Africa in Centurion earlier this year. These are also the most in any T20 match, beating the 23 sixes hit by Balkh Legend batters against Kabul Zwanan in the Afghanistan Premier League in 2018.
19y 206d - Malla's age on Wednesday, making him the second-youngest batter to score a century in men's T20Is. The youngest is Gustav Mckeon of France, who scored two centuries before turning 19 in July 2022.
56 - Percentage of Mongolia's total to have come through extras - 23 of the 41 all out were extras. It is the highest proportion of team runs to have come via extras in a men's T20I innings (min: five overs bowled). The previous highest was 34.6% for China, who had nine extras during their 26 all out against Thailand earlier this year.
1 - Centuries in the Asian Games, before Malla's 137*. Khalid Latif had scored an unbeaten 103 for Pakistan against China in the quarter-final of the men's competition in 2010, which did not have a T20I or T20 statusEdited by Kaori69 - 5 months ago

4 - This was the fourth instance of three batters scoring a century in an ODI - three of those by South Africa - and the first time it has happened in a World Cup contest.

49 - balls taken by Aiden Markram to his hundred makes it the fastest century in ODI World Cups bettering Kevin O'Brien's 50-ball effort against England in Bengaluru in the 2011 edition. It was the third fastest for South Africa in ODIs behind AB de Villiers' 31-ball century against West Indies in Johannesburg in 2015 and Mark Boucher's 44-ball knock against Zimbabwe in Potchefstroom in 2006.

428/5 - The highest ever total in a World Cup match leaving behind Australia's 417/6 against Afghanistan in Perth in 2015 while the previous highest against a side that then had full member status was South Africa's 408/5 against West Indies in Sydney in the same edition. It is also the highest ODI total against Sri Lanka dwarfing India's 414/7 in Rajkot in 2009.

5 - Totals in excess of 400 in World Cups - three of those by South Africa. They made 411/4 against Ireland in Canberra and 408/5 against West Indies in Sydney, both in the 2015 edition. Overall, this was the eighth instance of South Africa scoring 400+ in ODIs which is the most ever for a team.
59 - Boundaries hit by South Africa - 45 fours and 14 sixes - the most ever in a World Cup contest surpassing 57 by Sri Lanka against Kenya in Kandy in 1996 when they made the then record total of 398. 45 fours hit by South Africa is the most by a team in World Cup history, two more than what Sri Lanka managed in 1996.
105 boundaries hit by two teams combined in the match - a total of 74 fours and 31 sixes. It is the third highest ever in an ODI and the highest ever in a World Cup match. There was a total of 113 boundaries in in the match between Australia and South Africa in Johannesburg in 2006 and 110 between West Indies and England in St George's in 2019.
754 runs - the match aggregate of 754 runs by two teams combined is the most ever in a World Cup match surpassing 714 runs in the match between Australia and Bangladesh in Trent Bridge in 2019.
4 - Successive ODIs in which South Africa have scored 90+ runs in the death overs (41-50). In the last three ODIs against Australia last month, they hit 113 in Potchefstroom, 173 in Centurion and 96 in Johannesburg and continued the streak today hitting 137 today.
1- This was Quinton de Kock's maiden ODI century in an ICC event surpassing his previous best of unbeaten 78 against the same opponent in Sydney in the quarterfinal of 2015 edition. Before today, De Kock averaged only 31.05 in World Cups and Champions Trophy matches in comparison to 48.75 in bilateral ODIs.
204 - The second wicket partnership between De Kock and Rassie van der Dussen is the highest ever for South Africa against Sri Lanka for any wicket in all ODIs going past the opening stand of 187 by De Kock and Hashim Amla in Centurion in 2017.
95 - runs conceded in ten overs by Matheesha Pathirana is the second most runs conceded by a bowler in debut World Cup innings. The only one to leak more was New Zealand's Martin Snedden who gave away 105 runs in 12 overs against England at the Oval in 1983. The only Sri Lankan to concede more in a World Cup innings was Ashanta de Mel (97 in 10 overs vs WI Karachi 1987).
72 runs scored by Kusal Mendis is the second highest by a batter in the first ten overs of a World Cup contest since the 2003 edition, only behind 77 by Brendon McCullum against England in Wellington in 2015. It also happens to be the most runs by a non-opening batter in this phase of the innings in all ODIs (where ball-by-ball data is available).
8 sixes hit by Mendis is the most by a Sri Lankan batter in a World Cup innings surpassing seven by Sanath Jayasuriya against Bangladesh in Port of Spain in 2007. In matches where ball-by-ball data is available, only Chris Gayle has smashed more sixes than Mendis' eight maximums in the first ten overs of an ODI innings - nine against England in Gros Islet in 2019.
Records that Indians can break
Virat Kohli needs three more centuries to go past Tendulkar (49) in terms of becoming the first global cricket to strike 50 tons in ODIs.
Rohit Sharma is also in the run for breaking another record with the bat, as a ton more would make him the Indian with the most number of hundreds in the event's history, going past Tendulkar (6).
Rohit Sharma is just three maximums away from becoming the highest six-hitter in international cricket as he looks to go past legendary West Indian opener Chris Gayle (553).
Shubman Gill needs 665 runs more to become the highest run-scorer in an ODI calendar year, as he would go past former Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar (1,894).
Mohammed Shami is 13 wickets away from becoming the highest Indian wicket-taker in World Cup history, as he would surpass Zaheer Khan and Javagal Srinath (44).
If India manages to emerge victorious in terms of winning the title, it would become the first-ever side to win the tournament as a host consecutively, having won in 2011, the last time it hosted the competition.
