Kantipur Report

KATHMANDU, Nov 12 - The Nepali Cricket squad on Sunday registered a 205 run win against Singapore on the third day of the ACC Premier League match at the TU cricket grounds.
On the third and final day of the 3-day fixture, the Singaporeans were bowled out by the Nepali team for a paltry 196 runs on the board while chasing a 286 run target.

With today's victory, Nepal has garnered 33.10 of the 34 points of the League match rekindling hope that the Nepali squad will reach the finals.

Thanks to the victory, Nepal can saunter into the finals even if it ties with Malaysia in the final game of the league rounds.

Pulverising the Singaporean batting line up Captain Binod Das, was the pick of the bowler with his five-wicket haul against the visiting team. Similarly, Mehboob Alam and Basanta Regmi took two wickets each while Raj Kumar Pradhan and Paras Khadka scalped a wicket each.

Batting first after losing the toss, in the first innings Nepal accumulated 313 runs for nine. In the second innings, Nepal declared innings with 178 runs for 6 wickets, putting up a mammoth total of 402 runs target for the Singaporeans. The visitors' first inning was limited to 90 runs.

Paresh Lohani was declared "Best Batsman", Captain Binod Das "Best bowler" while Mehboob Alam crowned "Man of the Match".

It's nice to see u being active in sport section newapasa. Nepal's performance was far better than the last one against U.A.E. Nepal dominated the match in all three areas of cricket. Mehboob Alam showed again that he is the key player in the Nepal side. Certainly, Nepal had missed him alot in U.A.E. Nepal won two matches in this league playing at home, but has to play the final game away.
It can be negative factor, however, Nepal is full of confidence, is looking forward to defeating Malaysia at it's home.
