KATHMANDU — Nepal have posted a total of 95 runs target against Hong Kong in a must-win match of the Asia Cup Qualifier in Malaysia on Tuesday.
After winning the toss Nepal chose to bat first but Nepali side were bowled out for a paltry 95 runs with only five batsmen reaching two-digit figure.
The national cricket team’s batsmen failed to score a decent total after dismal performance from its batsmen in its game against Hong Kong at UKM Cricket oval, Bangi, Malaysia.
Nepal was all out for 95 runs in just 37.5 overs.
Nepal have to win this match by a huge margin and hope for favorable results from other matches to secure their place in the final as Nepal are fourth in the standings with just four points from as many matches.
The combination of their big win should go hand in hand with Oman’s big-margin victory over United Arab Emirates (UAE) to have any realistic chance of making it to the final.
It was a brilliant day for Hong Kong bowlers as they ripped the Nepali batting line up with quick wickets. Ehsan Khan was the pick of the bowlers with four wickets. Tanwir Afzal and Aizaz Khan had two each.Follow @gorkhapost
