In a breathtaking moment that will be etched in the annals of cricketing history, Nepal’s young batting sensation, Kushal Malla, has achieved the unthinkable at the Asian Games 2023. Malla has broken the records of two giants of T20 cricket, Rohit Sharma and David Miller, by becoming the fastest century-maker in T20 internationals.
Kushal Malla’s extraordinary feat unfolded during Nepal’s group stage encounter against Mongolia. The 19-year-old left-handed batter sent shockwaves across the cricketing world as he raced to his century in a mere 34 balls. This stunning achievement eclipsed David Miller’s record, which stood at 100 runs in 35 balls (vs Bangladesh in October 2017), and Rohit Sharma’s record, which was also achieved in 35 deliveries (vs Sri Lanka in December 2017).
Malla’s knock of 137 not out was nothing short of spectacular, drawing comparisons to the greats of the game. He displayed incredible composure, power, and precision, smashing 12 sixes and 8 sixes on his way to the record-breaking century. The crowd in attendance at Hangzhou’ Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field erupted in euphoria, cheering for the young Nepali cricketer who made history on the grand stage.
