United Arab Emirates (UAE) has posted a medium total of 176 runs after a big last wicket stand. Despite being 93/9 in 32nd over, Aayan Khan and Hazrat Bilal added 83 runs to guide UAE towards a respectful total.
Gulshan Jha and Sompal Kami yielded a superb start early on, sending back Muhammad Waseem (11), Vriitya Aravind (0) and CP Rizwan (4) within the fourth over. Rohan Mustafa (24) and Alishan Sharafu (33) then shared 63 runs for the fourth wicket to stabilise the inning. However, Mustafa’s dismissal in the fourth over saw a collapse as they lost the next five wickets for mere 14 runs, turning down to 93/9 in 32nd over.
The last duo then batted courageously to guide UAE past a triple-digit score. Aayan Khan scored an unbeaten 54 runs and added 83 runs for the last wicket with Hazrat Bilal who contributed 20*. This is highest score for both players.
Dipendra Singh Airee, Kushal Bhurtel and Gulshan Jha picked up a couple of wickets for Nepal. Similarly, Lalit Rajbanshi and Sompal Kami pocketed one wicket each.
After losing the first clash, Nepal levelled the series with a fighting win on Wednesday.
