Afghanistan scored 278 for the loss of three wickets from their allotted 20 overs, to register the highest-ever total in T20s at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium in Dehradun, Uttarakhand against Ireland. They toppled Australia’s record score of 263/3 which they achieved back in 2016 against Sri Lanka.
Hazratullah Zazai scored 162 runs from just 62 balls. Zazai became the first player from Afghanistan to score 150 or more runs, and his 236-run opening stand with Usman Ghani became the highest partnership in T20Is. They beat 223-run stand between Australia’s Aaron Finch and Darcy Short.
