An incredible spell from BBL teenager Sandeep Lamichhane has helped Nepal roll USA for an equal lowest-ever international one-day score.
The rising young gun put the USA batting order in a spell as he spun his way to figures of 6-16 as the USA reached just 35 runs.
The score has the USA tied with the equal-lowest ODI international score ever alongside Zimbabwe’s effort against Sri Lanka at Harare in 2004.
Only Xavier Marshall (16) from USA reached double figures as Nepal chased down the total with the loss of just two wickets.
The 12 overs taken to bowl out the USA was also the fastest a team has been dismissed in ODI history.
The USA went 0-4 in the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 pool.
Lamichhane’s figures 6-16 was remarkably only the seventh best in ODI history.
The 19-year-old plays for the Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League.

USA Cricket just made history--by losing the shortest ever one-day international. If you're going to lose...lose with style!— IggyADinosaur (@IggyDinosaur) February 12, 2020
What an experience it was! Was very excited to meet the @CricketNep & @USACricket players along with officials/staff at my 1st live cricket match in #Nepal!
