Skipper Paras Khadka’s Unbeaten Hundred Leads Nepal to Victory
Nepal 154 for 1 (Khadka 106*, Sheikh 39*, Prakash 1-10) beat Singapore 151 for 3 (David 64, KC 2-34) by nine wickets.
Singapore were fresh from their victory against Canada in the ICC Challenge League A, where they finished top on equal points. Their confidence was high as they had even defeated Nepal in the ICC Asia Finals. Also, they were captained for the first time by Tim David and played a steady first innings to get the total to 150 which seemed par.
Janak Prakash took an early wicket for the home side. However, Paras Khadka had other ideas and counter- attacked with big sixes as well to put the pressure on the Singapore bowlers. This was a dominant and professional display by the Nepal team to register their first win in the InstaReM presents Singapore Tri- Nation Series opener against Singapore in Singapore.
Singapore will be aiming to come back strong in their next match versus Zimbabwe on Sunday, 29th September 2019.
