In Numbers: Zazai and Afghanistan Smash T20I Record Books

Afghanistan batsman Hazratullah Zazai smashed an unbeaten 162 off just 62 balls in the second T20I against Ireland in Dehradun, in the process smashing many records.

Zazai and opening partner Usman Ghani (73 off 48) put on the highest ever stand in T20 cricket (236) to power Afghanistan to 278 for 3, the highest ever T20I score.

Zazai smashed 16 sixes, which too was a record as he went past Aaron Finch's 14 in 2013 against England. In all, Afghanistan scored a record 22 sixes in the innings.

Zazai was just 10 runs away from Finch's record for the most runs in a T20I.

Had he scored his century in seven balls fewer, Zazai would have equaled Rohit Sharma and David Miller for the fastest T20I tons.

Only 22 off Zazai's 162 runs needed him to run between the wickets. In other words, he broke the record for most runs via boundaries in T20Is as well.
