DEHRADUN, India (AP) Hazratullah Zazai scored 162 not out to power Afghanistan to the biggest team total in a Twenty20 international and an 84-run win over Ireland on Saturday.
The 20-year-old Zazai, playing only his fifth T20 for Afghanistan, smashed 16 sixes and 11 fours in a 62-ball innings as Afghanistan reached 278-3. It eclipsed the previous highest T20I score of 263-3 by Australia against Sri Lanka at Pallekele in 2016.
Lefthander Zazai's score was the second-highest individual innings in T20 internationals. Australian Aaron Finch holds the record with 172 against Zimbabwe in Harare last year.
