An epic day it is. Nepal into T20 World Cup
Cricket | National | International
27th of November 2013, a day that Nepali fans will rejoice for years to come. Because on this date Nepal beat their traditional rivals Hong Kong in a a nail biting last ball decider to book their place in their first ever T20 World Cup to be held in Bangladesh in 2014. It is history that has been written in UAE for the Nepalese team. Nepal had to beat Hong Kong today to qualify for the World Cup Spot or they would have to play another game tomorrow in their last chance to book place for the event.

In what was an all round  team performance, Nepal bowled first and had a good start, and looked to put trouble in the opponents batting line-up. But they recovered well enough to get 29 runs of the last two overs to put up a competitive total of 143 runs on the board. Tanwir Afzal and Barkat put 25 runs each along with Munir Dar (20) to take Hong Kong to a good total. Pacer duo Avinash Karn(2) and Jitendra Mukhiya(3) did the damage by sharing 5 wickets between them. Paras Khadka took one wicket while Vice Captain Gyanendra Malla caused a run out with a direct hit.

Coming down to chase a target of 144, Nepal looked consistent with the bat through out the innings with constant runs on the board, but what lacked was some explosive batting that would have eased the pressure from the middle order. Nepal had to manage 26 runs of the last two overs to successfully chase down the total. It needed calmness from the captain Khadka(46) and vice-captain Gyanendra Malla(30) while a six in the last over from the in form batsman Veswakar, was required to chase it down. Nepal drew the game in the second last ball of the game and needed one run from the bat of Veswakar(13) to finally complete the run chase. In the beginning Subash(16) and Sagar(22) had given Nepal a good start.  

With this, Nepal have gone into the semi-finals and also qualified for the World Cup that will happen in March 2014 in Bangladesh. This is the first time Nepal has qualified to the World Cup in any format of cricket.
