The Nepalese Cricket Team has experienced a first-ever super over in the international cricket. The Nepal-Oman match in the final of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Asia Qualifier Final ended in a tie and headed to a super over.
Oman emerged victorious in the one-over eliminator and clinched the title. Nevertheless, both teams had already secured their places in the ICC Twenty20 World Cup to be held in the USA and West Indies in June next year.
Prior to today’s match, Nepal had never been involved in a super over in either ODI or T20I cricket. Nepal’s one ODI match had concluded in a tie, but it did not proceed to a super over. In June 2022, Nepal’s match with the USA in CWC League 2 ended in a tie. In pursuit of a 275-run target, Nepal’s innings came to an end at 274 runs in 49.2 overs.
Nepal’s ODI record stands at 59 matches, with 30 wins, 27 losses, one tie, and one match ending with no result.
Likewise, in T20I cricket, Nepal has competed in 70 matches, securing victory in 42, experiencing defeat in 27, and one match concluding without a result.
