The women’s national cricket team in Thailand has rewritten the world record with the 17th consecutive international victory at the T20 on Saturday, August 10th.
In the fifth match of a current four-place series in the Netherlands hosted by Thailand, Ireland and Scotland, the team headed by Sornnarin Tippoch went through the hosts to bundle them for 54 before missing the target in eight overs many doors in the hand.
Thailand has broken the previous record of powerful Australian women who recorded 16 consecutive victories between March 2014 and August 2015. Three other teams have recorded 10 or more consecutive wins in this format – England and Zimbabwe (14) and New Zealand (14). 12).
Australia also recorded 12 victories in a row, starting in March 2018 and ending in the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 campaign in the West Indies later this year. The 14-game series in Zimbabwe is still ongoing, meaning there is a chance to reach the Thai record and possibly break it.

The series began in Thailand in July 2018 when they defeated the United Arab Emirates Women in the second play-off semi-final of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 qualifier in the Netherlands with seven wins. You have defeated the UAE a maximum of three times during this series.
The last two victories in Thailand went against high-profile opponents in Ireland and the Netherlands. They opened their square series with a blistering 74-run win over Scotland and tied them for 55 in the defense of 129. They barely held Ireland off for a 4-race win, the Duckworth Lewis method in one Match scored was shortened to ten overs per side. It was followed by the triumph against the Netherlands.
The victory on Saturday, like many of his previous victories, was achieved by the bowlers. The right-arm pacemaker, Nattaya Boochatam, was the most impressive among the many. He grabbed three wickets for so many runs in the 17-ball period.
Only three of the Dutch batters achieved a double-digit result, with Leonie Bennett scoring the best result at 16. The Netherlands made it harder for them to run between the wickets and lost three of their batters to run-outs.
Thai opener Nattakan Chantam, who came up with a modest amount of money, started the indoor stages with a big start. She neutralized the early losses of Naruemol Chaiwai and Nannapat Koncharoenkai and made 42 of the 55 runs themselves necessary. Their unbeaten run with 31 balls contained seven fours, the last of which raised the score before a single hit won the final ball of the eighth.
