Nepal team rushes on to the field to congratulate their hero Karan, Lamichhane goes down on his knees...

What a game of cricket! Canada were in the driver's seat during most of the game but in the end Karan just took it away from them with a solid innings.

Here is a good scenario to ponder upon... If this had ended in a tie, both Canada and Nepal would have got to 7 points each and that would have meant that these two teams would have gone through with UAE and Namibia on 6 points each after UAE's win against Namibia.

As it stands... UAE and Nepal go through to the Qualifiers.

PREM deo: "Finally i am d citizen of a country who ll play worldcup qualifier.. yeah just a qualifier bt very big achievement for us proud of u karan bro take a bow"

Brandon: "What a finish! Nepal is definitely a dangerous team to support if you have cardiac issues."

Ganesh Tiwari: "You will not know. But the whole country is celebrating this festival.. Zimbabwe, we are coming"...

Now we know Ganesh... Congratulations!
