ACC U-19 Youth Asia Cup 2017: Nepal Secures Place in Semi-Finals

After a historic win against India, the Nepali U-19 cricket team bagged another victory against the Malaysian U-19 team in a match held at Bayuemas Oval in Kuala Lumpur on November 14, 2017.

With this, the Nepali team advanced to semi-finals of the ACC U-19 Youth Asia Cup 2017.

This is the first time that Nepal, in its cricket history, has entered semi-finals of the tournament after clearing the knockout stage.

 

In the match that was limited for 24 overs due to rain, Nepal bowled Malaysia in just 15.3 overs at a 45-run score with a stunning performance by its bowler Sandeep Lamichhane who took five wickets.

Then, Nepal’s batting order jumped in and finished off the target in just 32 balls with a dashing performance by the opener batsman Anil Kumar Sah.

Even though Nepal won two matches to finish as Group A runners-up, its position in semi-finals remained secured following Bangladesh’s victory over India in another match held on the same day.

While Afghanistan stands in Group B with its win over UAE, Pakistan finished as Group runners-up.

Three-time champions India and Malaysia got eliminated out of the tournament from Group A, while Sri Lanka and UAE remained out from Group B.

In the semi-finals, the Nepali U19 cricket team will have its fight with Afghanistan and Bangladesh will take on Pakistan.
