LONDON, Sept 17: Scotland recorded the third-highest stand in international T20 history as George Munsey and Kyle Coetzer put on 200 in their side’s 58-run win over Netherlands.
Kyle Coetzer and George Munsey of Scotland celebrate a partnership of 100 runs during the T20 International Tri Series match against the Netherlands at the Malahide Cricket Club in Dublin.
The pair ran riot in Dublin with their double-century partnership before Coetzer was caught out for 89.
Munsey went on to score an unbeaten 127, while Richie Berrington hit 22 as Scotland finished on 252 for three.
Munsey scored at a pace that put him in rarified company.
He hit his maiden century off 41 balls. Three men have scored faster T20I centuries, all off 35 balls. He hit 14 sixes. Only Hazratullah Zazai, who clobbered 16 for Afghanistan against Ireland in February has struck more.
Munsey also struck 32 off one over, only Yuvraj Singh of India who hit six sixes off England’s Stuart Broad in 2007 has scored more. – AFP
