U-19 WORLD CUP: Nepal defeats Bermuda in practice

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on बिहिवार, फ्रेवुअरी 14, 2008

Nepal achieved a moral-boosting win against Bermuda in the first warm-up match of the ICC U-19 Cricket World Cup at the Kilat Club, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on Tuesday.

Nepal defeated Bermuda by 188 runs after bowling out the America region qualifier for 68 runs with captain Paras Khadka leading from the front with an all-round performance.

Paras scored 63 runs as Nepal raced to 256/8 in 50 overs. Paras’ 82-ball knock consisted five fours and two sixes. He also partnered 105 runs with Gyanendra Malla for the third wicket ensuring Nepal reach 159/3 by the end of 35th over.

Gyanendra was out first for 37 and five balls later Paras followed. Then, the remaining batsmen displayed some aggressive batting taking Nepal to a big score. Sagar Khadka remained unbeaten on 30 off 44 balls while Puspa Thapa hit two sixes for his 15-ball 20 and Rahul Biswokarma smashed 15 off 9 balls with a four and a six.

Earlier, Nepal elected to bat first after winning the toss. Openers Anil Mandal (21) and Mahesh Chhetri (15) put a foundation adding 52 runs in 12 overs. In space of just three balls, both returned to the pavilion handing Paras and Gyanendra the authority to build the innings.

Malachi Jones, who played for the Bermuda senior in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, picked up three wickets while teammate Jordan de Silva managed 2-31. Malachi was also the top scorer in the Bermuda innings hitting 15 off 32 balls.

Bermuda’s batting could not stand up to the discipline and ruthless attack of the Nepal bowlers, as no other batsmen managed to reach the double


Bermuda’s reply was wrapped up for 68 in the 25th over. Spinner Raj Shrestha and pacer Amrit Bhattarai took three wickets apiece while skipper Paras followed up his superb batting performance with a bowl, claiming two wickets.

Nepal now plays Zimbabwe, who lost to Australia by 10 wickets in the second warm-up match on Thursday.
