Nepal’s performance against Mongolia in the Asian Games
The star of the match was Kushal Malla, who delivered an extraordinary performance, scoring a sensational 137 runs from just 50 balls. His explosive batting left the Mongolian bowlers bewildered and the Nepali fans in sheer ecstasy.
Captain Rohit Kumar Poudel also played a captain’s knock, contributing 61 runs from 27 balls. His leadership on the field was impeccable, and his batting prowess was on full display.
But the fireworks didn’t stop there. Dipendra Singh Airee, in a breathtaking display of power hitting, scored 52 runs off a mere 10 balls, leaving the Mongolian fielders awestruck.
Nepal’s performance in this match was nothing short of historic. They shattered records and etched their names in the annals of cricket history. Nepal became the first team ever to score over 300 runs in a T20 match, setting a new world record and sending shockwaves through the cricketing world.
Mongoli’s Performance against Nepal
With a daunting target of 315 runs to chase, Mongolia faced a formidable task. However, Nepal’s bowlers were determined to maintain their dominance. Mongolia struggled to find their footing and were eventually bowled out at just 13.1 overs, with a meager total of 41 runs.
The only glimmer of resistance from Mongolia came from D. Jamyansuren, who managed to score a double-digit figure of 10 runs off 23 balls. However, even he couldn’t withstand the relentless attack of Nepal’s bowlers, particularly the exceptional Sandip Lamichhane, who took his wicket.
Nepal’s victory over Mongolia in the Asian Games 2023 T20 cricket match will be remembered as a milestone in the nation’s sporting history.
But it is important to remember that the debut nation plays exceptionally against an associate nation that has played a few more games and tournaments compared to them.
This will be the first step for Mongolia national cricket toward the world of cricket, and we hope they continue to improve and perform better in the coming days.
