Nepal stun India in ACC Under-19 Asia Cup 2017

Spirited Nepal stuns India in U-19 Asia Cup

Captain Himansu Rana top scored for India with 46 runs followed by Manoj Karla (35), Abhishek Sharma (27), Anuj Rawal (18) and Aditya Thakare (13).

In the match played at Kinrara Academy Oval, Nepal defeated the youth team of test-playing nation by 19 runs.

Kalra and Atharva Taide then realised 26 for the second wicket, admittedly at a very slow pace, but at 91 for 1 towards the end of the 23rd over, India had things well under control as they needed only 95 with plenty of overs and wickets in the bank.

With Nepal skipper Dipendra Singh Airee doing the star turn, picking four wickets after scoring 88 in 101 balls, India was never in the game.

Airee has been declared the man of the match.

The Nepal U19 team pulled off a shocking win against the Indian U19 team today in the ACC U19 Asia Cup that is underway in Malaysia.

India would have backed themselves to chase this total down at the halfway stage.

Put into bat, Nepal put up 185-8 in 50 overs - a target, many felt, will not be much of a problem for India. Captain Dipendra Singh Airee's excellent batting had put the opponents under control. Later, Airee partnered with opener Jitendra Singh Thakuri to contribute 49 runs to Nepal. But after the departure of Naim Bangladesh went on to lose quick wickets at regular intervals, forcing the required run-rate well over nine runs per over at one point of the game.

Yesterday, Nepal lost to Bangladesh by two wickets after the match was reduced to 40-over-a-side due to rain. Keep in touch with us on Facebook, Twitter & YouTube.
