Nepal claims T20 cricket bowling record

AFP . Kathmandu | Update:

Nepal's Anjali Chand claimed the best-ever bowling figures of six for nought in a women's Twenty20 international at the South Asian Games on Monday.

Chand, making her international debut, bowled 2.1 overs without conceding a single run as Nepal bowled out Maldives women for 16 in 10.1 overs in Pokhara.

The 24-year-old Chand surpassed the efforts of Malaysian Mas Elysa who claimed six wickets for three runs from her four overs against China's women in January.

Nepal needed five balls to achieve their target to win by 10 wickets.

India paceman Deepak Chahar set the best T20 bowling figures for men -- six for seven -- against Bangladesh last month.
