Both teams lost wickets on the first ball, a feat first shown in International T20

The three-game T20 series between the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and New Zealand began on August 17. The first game was very exciting in which the New Zealand team eventually won the game by 19 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the series. This match saw something unprecedented in the history of international T20 cricket. In fact, in that game both teams lost their wickets on the first ball of their innings.

For the first time in the history of T20 international cricket, this was observed in a match where both teams lost wickets on the first ball of their innings. The New Zealand team had a chance to bat first in the game and received the first bat from Junaid Siddiqui, who caught Chad Bose’s wicket. At the same time, the UAE team received a shock on the first ball of the inning in the form of captain Mohammad Wasim being victimized by New Zealand captain Tim Southee.

In that game, 18-year-old wicket-keeper-batsman Aryansh Sharma made his T20 International debut from the United Arab Emirates, playing a brilliant inning of 60 runs in 43 balls in his very first game. Aryansh is now the first player to have played as a wicketkeeper at T20 International for half a century in a debut game.
