NEPAL to face UAE in Semifinal friday

Posted by Prabin the सोभित on बुधवार, जुलाई 30, 2008

NEPAL, booked its place in semifinal after yesterday’s match between Qatar and Kuwait, will face UAE  in 2nd Semifinal friday.

Today, Nepal won the match against Kuwait by 7 wickets. After winning the toss Kuwait chose to bat first which was made worng decision by Nepalese Bowlers, picking 5 wickets early. Then they got some resistance being aggressive too against quite good bowling attack. After putting a good partnership then again they lost 4 wickets in quick succession. then come good last wicket partnership to end with 103 in 38.1 overs where Nepalese Bowler Mahboob and Shakti got 3 wickets each.

After getting low target to chase, it is assumed that NEPAL might win with all 10 wickets in hand but that does not happened. The top order fails again as tournament goes to semifinal stage, it lost 3 wickets quickly and gave a chance to pressurise themselves. Then, Nepal started to play very causously and slow which allowed them to get the target without loosing further any wickets. Nepal wins by 7 wickets in hand in 29 overs and finished leader in the group.

Meanwhile, Afghanistan has won their match against bahrain and over came against UAE to top the group. Afghanistan and UAE has the identical points with 3 win and 1 loss each but Afghanistan has got better net run rate to go ahead as group winner. So, it is clear that UAE is facing NEPAL and Afghanistan is facing Hongkong in semifinals. This is the repeatation of last ACC TROPHY 2006 where UAE beat Nepal and Hongkong beat Afghanistan to play in final.
