Japan vs Mongolia


The Mongolian national cricket team has achieved an unwanted feat to its name in the T20I. They were bowled out for just 12 runs in a T20I game against the Japan National Cricket Team on Monday (May 7). This is the second lowest score in the history of the shortest game.

Mongolia shot first in the game against Japan and did not have a great start with the ball. They ended up conceding 217 in a match that took place in Japan. Sabaorish Ravichandran was the highest run-getter for his team as he played 69 innings off 39 balls.

Sabaorish Ravichandran also hit six fours and four sixes in his innings to keep his team on top against the Mongolia National Cricket Team. Apart from him, Kazuma Kato-Stafford and Ibrahim Takahashi made quick cameos that powered Japan to 217 runs at the Sano International Cricket Ground.

The Japan National Cricket Team then came out swinging with the ball and made a mockery of the Mongolian National Cricket Team’s batting line-up. Kato-Stafford bowled impeccable lines and lengths and tore through the opposition batting line-up.

Kato-Stafford took a five-wicket haul in just four overs. Apart from him, Abdul Samad and Makoto Taniyama also contributed and picked two wickets. Debutante Benjamin Ito-Davis also took a wicket as they bowled out the opponents for just 12 runs.

Tur Sumya was Mongolia’s leading run-scorer as he scored 4 runs off 12 balls. Opening batsman Namsrai Bat-yalalt also played 12 balls but managed 2 runs as they suffered a batting debacle and managed all out for 12 at the Sano International Cricket Ground.

Mongolia’s total of 12 is the second-lowest score in T20I history. They are behind the Isle of Man who went all out in just 10 runs against Spain in 2023. The Mongolian team would now hope to come back strong and improve their Cricket.
