The history of Cricket in the world is quite old, and with time the popularity of this sport has been increasing day by day. Cricket has become one of the most popular and most played games in the world, and therefore there are many countries where Cricket is played.
But when it comes to achieving success in this game, there are merely 10-12 countries that have been succeeded in this game of Cricket, and most nations are still struggling to get global recognition and success in Cricket.
Nepal is also one of these countries where Cricket has been playing for a pretty long time but hasn’t achieved the success and recognition that it should have achieved by now. There have been continuous rise and downfall of Cricket in Nepal.
Leaving all these things behind, there have also been many instances where the Nepali Cricket Team and Nepalese players have shown their immense talent on the Cricket field against their opponents. And they have made some big world records with their names.
Records Of Nepal And Nepalese Cricketers In World Cricket
1. Mehboob Alam Taking All 10 Wickets In ODI Cricket
Everyone who knows about Nepal Cricket must have known about this man and his world record. During the 2008 ICC World Cricket League Division Five in Jersey, Mehboob Alam creates history and achieve one of the impossible records in limited over cricket that anyone could have ever imagined. He made an unbelievable world record of picking all the 10 wickets in an ODI match by bowling out Mozambique for just 19 runs single-handedly.
2. Rubina Chhetri Picking 5 Wickets In An Over
Rubina Chhetri made this record in a very dramatic situation against Singapore in ACC Women’s T20 Championship. Defending just 2 runs in the last over of the match where Singapore had almost won the match, Rubina Chhetri did something unbelievable by taking 5 wickets in her last over conceding only one run through a wide ball. Except for the first ball of that last over, Rubina took wickets in all the remaining 5 balls of the over including a hat-trick that made her the first Nepalese woman to take a hat-trick in T20I.
She still holds this record of most number of taking wickets in a single over in Women’s T20I, and to break this record someone has to take 6 wickets in an over which is almost impossible. Let’s see if someone will be able to break this record of Rubina Chhetri or not.
3. Shakti Gauchan Holding A Record Of Most Economical Spell In One-Day Cricket
This left-arm orthodox spinner holds the record of most economical spell ever in limited over encounters. In 2012 ICC World Cricket League Division Four, he finished his spell of 10 overs by giving just 2 runs and taking 3 wickets with a total of 8 maiden overs against Malaysia. In short, his bowling figure of 10-8-2-3 against Malaysia is the most economical spell in limited-overs encounters. If it would have been an ODI match, he would have been a bowler with the most economical spell ever.
4. Rahul Vishwakarma For The Best Economical Spell In The History Of U-19 World Cup
5. Anjali Chand For Holding Best Bowling Figure In WT20I Cricket
This is the most recent record made by any Nepalese cricketer. During the 13th South Asian Games that held in Nepal last year, Anjali Chand created history by taking 6 wickets with no runs conceding against the Maldives in Pokhara.
Her bowling figure of 6/0 is the best bowling figure in Women’s T20 International. This is also the first time ever where a bowler has taken 6 wickets for no run in any international cricket match.
6. Sompal Kami For Highest Runs By Number 10 Batsman In T20I
Sompal Kami is one of the best all-round cricketers ever in the Nepal Cricket Team. He is a right-handed batsman and right-arm fast-medium bowler who is mostly known for his bowling speed. He has been a match-winner for Nepal with both his batting and bowling.
Kami holds the world record of highest runs scored by a batsman at position 10 in T20 Internationals. He made this record while batting against Hong Kong on 24 December 2014 at P Sara Oval. He made 40 runs batting at the number 10 position.
7. First Country To Introduce Cricket For Blind Women
Nepal might not be a country that introduced Cricket in the world, but Nepal is a country to introduce the world’s first blind women cricket team by introducing the Kaski Cricket Team.
8. Quickest Chase In One-Day Cricket By Nepal
The male cricket team of Nepal holds the record of the fastest chase in a One-Day cricket match. It might sound strange if we tell you Nepal has registered a win by chasing down the target in just 2 balls.
Nepal had made this record in the 2006 ACC Cup against Myanmar. After winning the toss, Nepal had decided to bowl first, and with the help of 7 wickets by Mehboob Alam and 3 wickets by Binod Das, Nepal was able to bowl out Myanmar for just 10 runs in 12.1 overs. And after that Nepal made a record of the quickest chase down in ODI cricket in just 2 balls chasing down the target of 11 runs.
9. First Associate Nation To Win ICC U19 Plate Championship
In 2006, Nepal became the first associate nation to win the plate championship in the World Cup by registering a win against New Zealand.
10. Kushal Malla And Rohit Poudel; The Youngest Male Cricketers To Score An ODI Fifty
These are the special records for both of these Nepalese cricketers. This is the very old record of none other than Sachin Tendulkar that was broken by these two Nepalese young cricketers.
First Rohit Poudel broke the record of Sachin Tendulkar for the youngest player to score an ODI fifty at the age of 16 years and 146 days, while Sachin Tendulkar had become the youngest player to score an ODI fifty at the age of 16 years and 213 days. Rohit broke this record of Sachin by scoring 55 runs off 58 balls against UAE in Dubai on January 26, 2019.
Later the same year on February 8, 2019, the record of Rohit was broken by his own teammate Kushal Malla. Kushal broke the record of Rohit and became the youngest cricketer to score an ODI fifty by scoring 50 runs off 51 balls against the USA at the early age of 15 years and 340 days.
11. Sundeep Jora; The Youngest Male Cricketer To Score T20I Fifty
Nepalese cricketer Sundeep Jora is the youngest cricketer to score a fifty in T20 International cricket. He has achieved this feat by scoring 53 not out against the United Arab Emirates on January 31, 2019, at the age of 17 years and 103 days.
12. Paras Khadka Is The First Skipper To Score A Century While Chasing In T20I
After completing his ton in just 49 balls, it was also the 4th fastest T20I Century by any Asian batsman. With this century, Paras Khadka became the first captain in the world to score a century while chasing in T20 Internationals. He also became the youngest captain to score a T20I century at the age of 31 years.
These are records created by the Nepal Cricket Team and Nepalese Cricketers in the world of cricket. While some of these records can be easily broken by other teams or players, there are also some records that seem impossible for other teams or players to break.
