Nepal has wrapped up Oman for a tiny total of 163 runs in the third match of the Tri-Series between Nepal, Oman, and the USA under CWC League 2.

Opting to bat first at Moosa Cricket Stadium, Pearland Moosa Cricket Stadium, Pearland didn’t go right for Oman following a tight bowling display from Nepali bowlers. Karan Kc was the pick of a bowler for Nepal against Oman once again as he grabbed 2nd fifer of his career, both coming in this series.

Oman had a nightmare of a start as they were 5 down for just 49 runs in the 17th over. However, Skipper Zeeshan Maqsood shared 83 runs with Sandeep Goud to guide Oman towards a respectful total. Maqsood could not repeat the last match’s heroic as Dipendra Singh Airee trapped him lbw for 52 runs. Goud too was sent back quickly for 47 by Karan Kc. Oman were able to add 17 more runs for the last 3 wickets with the little contribution of Fayez Butt and Naseem Khusi. Eventually, Oman were bowled out for 163 with 19 balls spare.

Karan KC, who was sensational in both powerplay and death overs, grabbed a fifer conceding just 33 runs. Sandeep Lamichhne picked up 3 wickets whereas Dipendra Airee and Sompal Kami pocketed 1 wicket each.
