It's all over.Nepal won by 142 runs against the Netherlands who looked out of sorts today in all aspects of the game. Chasing 239, the Netherlands never got going started with 2 suicidal run-outs and the Nepal bowlers kept on applying the pressure with sold bowling and fielding efforts.

Early on in the game, Netherlands started off poorly with too many extras and freebies. Nepal batters stood there comfortably and smacked their record breaking highest T20I total. It was again Kushal Bhrutel who started off slowly and then plied up yet another half century. Kushal Malla and Airee toyed with the bowlers in the final quarter. The Dutch bowlers lacked control once to often and bowled too many wides which didn't help their cause.

Kishan Maharjan: "Congratulations Team Nepal. Played so good. Keep it up. Wish you all the best for the future. Thank you very much."
