Asiad cricket: India post 202/4 as Jaiswal cracks maiden T20Is century

Hangzhou, Oct 3 (UNI) Yashashvi Jaiswal's century and late flourish by Rinku Singh helped India post 202/4 against Nepal at Pingfeng Campus Cricket Field in the Asian Games 2023 quarterfinals here on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old Jaiswal created history by becoming the youngest batsman to score a century in T20Is. He broke Shubman Gill's record of being the youngest Indian batsman to reach the triple-digit score in T20Is.
Jaiswal got his maiden century in T20Is at the age of 21 and Gill at 24 against New Zealand on February 1 in Ahmedabad.
He smashed his maiden century in 48 balls with 8 boundaries and 7 sixes, but did not carry on as he got out to Dipendra Singh caught Abinash Bohara in the very next ball.
Jaiswal gave India a rollicking start by getting 103 runs in 9.5 overs for the first wicket with captain Ruturaj Gaikwad (25).
After the powerplay, India looked to amass 250 runs but once the spinners took over it became tough for Indian batsmen as Nepal bowlers were getting their yorkers right.
Apart from Jaiswal, the next three batsmen did not get the timing right, Gaikwad was caught by Rohit Paudel off Dipender.
Tilak Varma and Jitesh Sharma quickly walked back to the dugout after scoring 2 and 5, off Sompal Kami and Sandeep Lamichhane.
Shivam Dube (25* off 19) hung around but Rinku Sharma (37* off 15) gave a great finish to push the score over 200.
Dipendra (2/31) and Sompal (1/38) were the pick of the bowlers for Nepal.
