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.
