Asian Cricket Council Trophy Elite - Semi final

Malaysia v Nepal

Nepal won by 21 runs


Nazril Rahman to Khakurel, OUT, and that's a wicket! The ball moves away a little bit after pitching on the length, enough to entice Khakurel into the drive. He gets a faint edge and Sharif, the keeper, takes the catch
