TOTAL50 Ov (RR: 6.78)339/7
Fall of wickets: 1-2 (Kyle Mayers, 1.3 ov), 2-9 (Johnson Charles, 4.1 ov), 3-55 (Brandon King, 15.3 ov), 4-271 (Nicholas Pooran, 43.6 ov), 5-310 (Rovman Powell, 47.1 ov), 6-335 (Shai Hope, 49.2 ov), 7-339 (Keemo Paul, 49.6 ov)
47.1 to R Powell, Powell departs! A waist-height full toss and he slugs it straight into the hands of Gulshan at long-on, his ebullience lasted 14 deliveries. He is caught as easy as you like. 310/5
49.2 to SD Hope, Another one bites the dust! Got the elevation on this occasion but didn't get the distance. Departs after a staggering innings of 132 and has put West Indies in a very strong position. Ball was pitched up and he couldn't get underneath, long-off swallows it down his throat. 335/6
49.6 to KMA Paul, Holder makes a mess of his stumps! Rajbanshi bags his third scalp with a beauty. He doesn't misses his target and fires a yorker straight at the stumps, Holder was backing away to club it over the off side, misses the line and the furniture is disturbed. Jubilation for Rajbanshi who finishes his spell on a high. 339/7
1.3 to KR Mayers, That's a screamer! Banged in short, swings big off the backfoot but doesn't control his bat, Karan backpedals at midwicket, goes airborne and plucks it out of thin air. He just instinctively flicks out his hands and the ball sticks! Mayers takes the long walk back into the pavilion, vicious fist-pump and a very loud scream from Karan!. 2/1
4.1 to J Charles, Edged and taken!Massive yahoo across the line, he throws his hands and a thick edge goes flying to the keeper who safely snaffles it behind the stumps! West Indies in big trouble, second wicket down and Nepal are over the moon! Brilliant bowling from Nepal, lured him into playing away from his body and he falls into the trap. Excellent bowling change. 9/2
15.3 to BA King, but follows up with his first wicket of the tournament! Wicked delovery, a flighted googly that King just doesn't read. He tried to angle it to third man, but it skids back into him sharply and takes his inside edge on its way to the stumps. West Indies' stand is broken, and drinks are called. 55/3
43.6 to N Pooran, Caught and bowl! That's a screamer, very quick reflexes as he biffs it back to the bowler who went down and pulled off a one-handed stunner, Airee wheels away into the arms of converging teammates. OUT on the big screen and Pooran has to go. Vital breakthrough at a crucial stage of the innings but what a fabulous century, 115 off just 94 deliveries. He looks a bit flummoxed by that sharp return catch and is looking at the big screen as he walks back into the pavilion. 271/4

TOTAL49.4 Ov (RR: 4.79)238
Fall of wickets: 1-5 (Kushal Bhurtel, 1.4 ov), 2-23 (Bhim Sharki, 4.2 ov), 3-48 (Aasif Sheikh, 11.6 ov), 4-81 (Rohit Paudel, 19.4 ov), 5-92 (Kushal Malla, 22.1 ov), 6-129 (Dipendra Singh Airee, 28.1 ov), 7-197 (Gulsan Jha, 43.3 ov), 8-204 (Sandeep Lamichhane, 44.3 ov), 9-212 (Aarif Sheikh, 45.6 ov), 10-238 (Karan KC, 49.4 ov)
4.2 to B Sharki, tries to scoop it up over fine leg but ends up lapping it straight up to the keeper! Hope completes the most straightforward catch and Nepal lose their second. 23/2
19.4 to RK Paudel, Short ball does the trick! The bodyline attack continues and it has brought them another breakthrough as the ball got big on him and he went for the hook, not under-control at all as Keacy Carty at deep fine makes no mistake in pouching the ball into his hands.. 81/4
44.3 to S Lamichhane, The steep bounce undid him! Joseph gobbles it up gleefully at deep fine as he lost control of that hook shot off the backfoot, was in no position to play it but you can't blame him, he had to go for it.. 204/8
1.4 to K Bhurtel, cleans him up, and the comeback is complete. he had dominated the batter after that first boundary. This one doesn't seam, but carries straight on, beats the outside edge and sends off stump cartwheeling. 5/1
45.6 to Aarif Sheikh, Pooran you can do no wrong today! Another troubling shorter delivery outside off, goes for the upper-cut as Pooran sprints across, puts in a dive and takes an absolute screamer at deep third. 212/9
49.4 to Karan KC, That full delivery was hit hard but straight back to Mayers who snaffles it in his follow-through as Nepal get bowl out for 238 with two balls to go. This has been a convincing victory by West Indies; their bowling was too hot to handle for Nepal and they particularly struggled against the hostile short-pitch assault. 238/10
11.6 to Aasif Sheikh, Snaps under pressure! Darts in a thunderbolt, bends his back and gets the ball to kick off the surface, fires it in the corridor, Aasif goes for an ugly hoick across the line, top edges it to the slip fielder. Wickets are tumbling and the asking rate is creeping up! Mayers hangs onto it brilliantly, timed his jump to perfection. 48/3
43.3 to Gulsan Jha, Top edge fountained straight up and fell into the Shai Hope's gloves! Pulled off the backfoot into the air, didn't get all of it. Gulshan departs for 42 as Nepal stare into the abyss. 197/7
22.1 to Kushal Malla, what's happened there? He slogged it to cow corner where Carty appeared to have taken a brilliant catch, gone over the rope and come back in having tossed the ball up. He's caught the catch cleanly - and brilliantly - enough. What a sensational catch that is.. 92/5
28.1 to DS Airee, slashed to backward point but it's a splendid diving catch from Chase to send him packing! That's been the story of West Indies in the field today. Some abysmal moments interspersed by briliant catches, and Nepal slide further. 129/6
