TOTAL44.3 Ov (RR: 3.75)167
Fall of wickets: 1-7 (Aasif Sheikh, 2.2 ov), 2-46 (Kushal Bhurtel, 14.5 ov), 3-54 (Aarif Sheikh, 16.1 ov), 4-66 (Bhim Sharki, 18.1 ov), 5-91 (Kushal Malla, 25.2 ov), 6-116 (Rohit Paudel, 31.5 ov), 7-123 (Dipendra Singh Airee, 33.5 ov), 8-155 (Gulsan Jha, 41.2 ov), 9-157 (Karan KC, 41.6 ov), 10-167 (Sandeep Lamichhane, 44.3 ov)
2.2 to Aasif Sheikh, Chopped on from wide outside off, Van Beek and his team-mates are delighted. It was wide on a length, came back in but was around around seventh stump almost. Aasif went for the square drive, got an underedge that uprooted off stump.. 7/1
31.5 to RK Paudel, Vikramjit holds on! Change of bowling works, short-ball tactic also spot on. Netherlands know Nepal have been uncomfortable with that, and this brings another wicket. Short ball aimed at his ear, and the pull is sliced high up. Vikramjit at midwicket turns around and tries to take the catch from over his shoulder. Fumbles once, but then manages to complete the catch. Wry smile on his face.. 116/6
33.5 to DS Airee, Pull tickled to the keeper, third for Van Beek! Airee tried to continue with his run-scoring intent. He went for another swivel pull to bag a couple of runs behind square, like he had twice in this over, but this time the angle was a bit sharper and Airee had to help it while staying off side of the ball. Ended up handing an easy catch to Edwards. 123/7
44.3 to S Lamichhane, Connects well with the pull but de Leede backtracks and takes a good catch over head-height at deep midwicket. Probably the first time that Lamichhane got hold of a short ball, timing was great but the placement and de Leede's excellence cost him. 167/10
41.2 to Gulsan Jha, Ramped... to the keeper. Easy catch for Edwards, who squats and takes it with fingers pointing up. It was a back-of-length ball that Gulsan tried to steer to the deep-third area. It brushed the edge as he tried to sway away, the lack of room meant the thin edge went straight in the keeper's direction. 155/8
41.6 to Karan KC, Another edge off an attempted upper cut goes to the keeper. Karan was backing away as the back-of-length ball arrived, he tried to guide it to deep third and did a repeat of what Gulsan did four balls ago. 157/9
14.5 to K Bhurtel, extra bounce does the trick! Fifth-stump line, bit of extra bounce. Bhurtel tries to work it towards deep third, but this nips back in, and gets the glove. Keeper with a sharp grab!. 46/2
16.1 to Aarif Sheikh, Singh is King! That's a second wicket in as many overs for Vikramjit. Gets a length ball to seam in sharply. Aarif tries to get out of the way but is surprised by the late movement. Gets a glove (or the bat's handle) and pops up to the off side for a simple grab.. 54/3
18.1 to B Sharki, strikes first ball! He pitches it full outside off. Gets turn away. Sharki tries to go inside out over cover but slices the shot. Point slowly lobs over point but the fielder backtracks beautifully and holds on to it!. 66/4
25.2 to Kushal Malla, two fielders converging - but confusion avoided! Aryan gets reward for his tidiness. Full ball around off. Malla gets forward and tries to smack it against the spin over wide long on. But its mistimed and both long on and long off run forward. Eventually long off - Nidamanaru - attempts the catch and importantly holds on!. 91/5

Fall of wickets: 1-86 (Vikramjit Singh, 12.6 ov), 2-96 (Wesley Barresi, 14.5 ov), 3-158 (Max O'Dowd, 26.1 ov)
12.6 to Vikramjit Singh, trapped on the back foot! Singh looks to meet this length ball from off the back foot, but it skids straight through and gets to him before expected. Pins him around middle and leg, and the umpire says out. Singh was surprised at the decision, maybe he thought it was too high.. 86/1
14.5 to W Barresi, Barresi reverse sweeps it straight to Airee at short third. Length around off, batter went across and drove the bat through the shot. He got decent timing but couldn't keep it down. Easy catch in front of the face. Somewhat of a bonus for Nepal with 72 runs left for Netherlands to win.. 96/2
26.1 to MP O'Dowd, a scintillating innings without the fairytale end. Fullish ball around off and moving into him while also staying a tad low. Tries to fend, but the ball goes past his edge and crashes into off stump.. 158/3
