World T20 - 9th match, First Round Group A
Nepal won by 9 runs
Played at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium, Chittagong (neutral venue)
20 March 2014 - day/night match (20-over match)

Dawlat Zadran to Sagar Pun, OUT, the extra ball has done the damage! Pun, when he made contact with the ball, looked like he had got the timing to take it over mid-off, but no. Nabi takes a simple head high catch there and Nepal, apart from being slow today, have lost a wicket too

Sagar Pun c Mohammad Nabi b Dawlat Zadran 8 (18m 11b 1x4 0x6) SR: 72.72

Nepal 19/1   SP Khakurel 8* (14b)   Dawlat Zadran 2-0-11-1

Mohammad Nabi to Malla, OUT, a soft dismissal this one! Malla, who looked so good in the first over, surrenders with an unnecessarily risky shot. Nabi kept it around the middle and leg line but Malla tries to drag it to the off side with a reverse-sweep only to get a thick top edge that lobs up gently for the fielder at short third man. That was in fact a switch-hit.

G Malla c Nawroz Mangal b Mohammad Nabi 22 (17m 13b 3x4 1x6) SR: 169.23

Nepal 51/2   SP Khakurel 18* (23b 2x4)   Mohammad Nabi 0.4-0-2-1

Mirwais Ashraf to Khadka, OUT, the captain has to go! After solidly getting behind the last few deliveries, he attempts to go across the line to a straight length ball and pays the price. He gets a thick inside edge that flattens the stumps. Joy for Mirwais, who is playing his first match in the tournament. No inside edge actually, he just missed it completely to lose his off stick

P Khadka b Mirwais Ashraf 1 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 20.00

Nepal 53/3   SP Khakurel 19* (26b 2x4)   Mirwais Ashraf 2-0-6-1

Shapoor Zadran to Khakurel, OUT, that is the end of Khakurel's fantastic effort! He looks to heave the length delivery to the deep midwicket boundary but gets more height than length on that.. Ashgar Stanikzai does very well to run back from midwicket and grab that comfortably in the end

SP Khakurel c Asghar Stanikzai b Shapoor Zadran 56 (76m 53b 6x4 1x6) SR: 105.66

Nepal 129/4   S Vesawkar 33* (30b 4x4)   Shapoor Zadran 3.1-0-14-1

Shapoor Zadran to Vesawkar, OUT, another one down! Shapoor got taken for runs off the fuller one, but his short delivery does the job. The batsman veers away to the leg side to smash it over the off, but gets a thick top edge that lobs up for the keeper

S Vesawkar c †Mohammad Shahzad b Shapoor Zadran 37 (38m 32b 5x4 0x6) SR: 115.62

Nepal 133/5   B Bhandari 0* (0b)   Shapoor Zadran 3.3-0-18-2
