Five Teams Who Can Beat Afghanistan’s Highest T20 Total Of 278; The game of cricket has always given surprises to its fans and one of the major shocks was when Afghanistan registered a massive tally of 278 runs on the board in T20I against Ireland.
Afghanistan scored 278 for the loss of three wickets from their allotted 20 overs, to register the highest-ever total in T20s. They toppled Australia’s record score of 263/3 which they achieved back in 2016 against Sri Lanka.
Hazratullah Zazai was the star with the bat for Afghanistan, as he scored 162 runs from just 62 balls. On his way to the huge score, Zazai hit 11 fours and 16 sixes. Zazai hence scored 140 runs in just boundaries alone.
Since then, a lot of teams tried hard to achieve the feat but unfortunately, failed to cross it.
Meanwhile, we figured out five teams, who can beat the score of Afghanistan soon. Here are they:

5. New Zealand:
One of the strongest teams in the world cricket at the moment New Zealand can break the record with the kind of lineup they have had. The Kiwis have a strong core of players with the right mix of senior and youth.
With Martin Guptill and Colin Munro capable of scoring runs at a thick rate and with swashbuckling players Colin de Grandhomme, Ross Taylor and James Neesham following the duo, one can expect them to break the record in near future.
