The Nepali U-19 cricket team’s attempt to play the ICC U-19 World Cup takes a hit as the team lost against the Afghanistan team in a match held in Singapore on Tuesday.
With this, the Nepal team remained at eight points. Whereas, the Afghan team, with 12 points, qualified for the World Cup match to be held in New Zealand in 2018.
While the first-batted Afghan team has set a score target of 196 runs, the Nepali team ended up at 40.3 over with just 99 runs, thus facing a 96-run defeat.
Poor batting performance is seen as a major reason behind the Nepali team’s failure in the match. All-rounder Dipendra Aire has proved his performance by scoring 48 runs, however, rest of the batsmen scored less.
