Ryal Burl plundered 34 points in a single Nasum Ahmed in the third T20I between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in Harare to help his side win by 10 points. The emphasis of 34 runs was the second most runs scored in a T20I men’s cricket that Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor had achieved earlier.
Zimbabwean Ryan Burl was on a roll on Tuesday, smashing five sixes and a four for 34 points in the third T20I against Bangladesh in Harare. In the 15th inning of the Zimbabwe innings, played by Nasum Ahmed, Burl hit four successive sixes followed by a four and a six to total 34 runs in the over, the second most runs scored in an over in the men’s cricket T20I.
Notably, Yuvraj Singh and Kieron Pollard hold the record for most runs in a plus (36) in the men’s T20I after breaking six sixes against wide stuart and Akila Dananjaya respectively. Tim Seifert and Ross Taylor together scored 34 runs in a Shivam Dube over off in 2020, and now Burl has entered the elite roster.
Additionally, Burl also broke his own record for most runs in an over by a Zimbabwean. He had smoked before Shakib Al Hasan for 30 runs in a T20I match at Mirpur, 2019. There Burl hit three sixes and three fours against Shakib in the 16th of that inning.
Riding on the heroism of Burl, who finished with 54 from 28 balls, Zimbabwe posted 156/8 on Tuesday beating the first. In response, Bangladesh were held to 146/8, suffering a 10-point loss. With the result, Zimbabwe won their first-ever series against Bangladesh in any format.
