After having notched up unwanted record of being team to get out for lowest ever total in International T20 cricket, Mali Women cricket team on Thursday were again at receiving end of another unwanted World record as they become first team to concede 300 plus runs in T20 match when they played against Uganda.
Last week, Mali women had scored the lowest ever total in T20s as they were bowled out for just six runs by Rwanda women.
In the match coming off to bat first in the Kwibuka Women’s T20 tournament fixture at the Gahanga International Cricket Stadium, Rwanda, Uganda opener Prosscovia Alako hammered 116 runs in 71 balls, hitting 15 fours, while skipper Rita Musamali also scored an unbeaten 103 runs in 61 balls to take the side to the massive total of 314/1 in 20 overs.
Mali also conceded 61 extras in the match, which included 28 wides and 30 no balls, which are the highest number of extras ever conceded in a T20I international.
Later, in reply, Mali were bundled out for 7, in 11.1 overs, eventually losing the match by 304 runs, the biggest ever defeat in a T20 match.
