Nepal made its place in ICC ODI cricket only last year. On Wednesday, Nepal’s team created history by making a record in their own name to dismiss the opposite team on the minimum score. Nepal made a record by dismissing America on a score of only 35 runs. In this, the main spinner of the team, Sandeep Lamichhane, played an important role.
In the match between Nepal and the United States in the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2, Nepal first put America on 35 runs and achieved the target before losing 6 wickets before 6 overs. In this match, Sandeep Lamichhane took six wickets for Nepal against the USA.
This is the record for the lowest score in the history of ODI International, but this is not the first time. Earlier in 2004, Sri Lanka all out Zimbabwe for the same number of runs. In this regard, Nepal created history, but they also missed a big record.
The match was played at Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground Kirtipur (Nepal) in Kirtipur. Nepal won the toss and asked the USA to bat first and the American wicket started falling from the second over. Four players of the visiting team were zero, three players scored 4 runs, two players scored one run and one player was out for two runs.
Xavier Marshall scored the highest 16 runs for America and was the second player of the team to be dismissed. After this, the team was reduced to 35 runs in 12 overs. Nepal’s leading leg-spinner Sandeep Lamichhane gave his team’s best performance by taking 6 wickets for 16 runs. At the same time, the remaining four wickets were taken by Susan.
