Nepali U-19 cricketers looked poised for an easy win against their Singapore counterparts in the youth World Cup qualifiers being played in the island nation, but the home side had other plans.

Put into bat first, Singapore could muster just 73 runs before losing all their batsmen in 29 overs. Nepali skipper Sandeep Lamichhane claimed five wickets.

The Nepali chase, expected to be quick, was anything but. Singapore bowlers were hard to put away, they claimed six wickets in the run-chase. However, winning runs from all-rounder Pawan Sarraf ensured that Nepal finished the match with a win.

Meanwhile Afghanistan hammered Malaysia to chase down their target of 54 runs within 5 overs of the second innings. Nepal take on Malaysia tomorrow and Afghanistan on Thursday. Only one team qualifies for the World Cup among the four countries.
