The Nepali team had also won two previous matches. Put into bat first, the hosts were dismissed for 149 runs in 49 overs. Nepal scored 153-6 in the 38th over in reply. Nepali skipper Binod Das and Raj Kumar Pradhan claimed three wickets each. Amrit Bhattarai also took two while Sanjam Regmi and Basant Regmi pocketed one wicket each.

In reply, opener Paresh Lohani top-scored with 34 runs for the touring team. Alrounder Paras Khadak remained unbeaten on 31 while Dipendra Chaudhary and Gyanendra Malla chipped in 24 and 21 runs respectively. Basant Regmi remained unbeaten on 10.

    Hey, check out this website. This kind of thing pisses me off. I think countries should play with their own players not bring in foreign players. Malaysia brought 3 players just for the ACC Elite Cup.

  3. wel come crayt21,

    yes, I think, that site has lost its charm within visitors and its administrator as well. Nothing has been updated. we lost lots of fan from there. you might noticed that very few visitors than before visited that site when WCL div. 5 was running.

    It is my own interest drive me to run this blog, actually I am living aboard so I could not cover all but still trying to put all what I get in the web.
