Nepal beat Canada by one wicket yesterday to qualify for the World Cup qualifiers to be held in Zimbabwe in March.
What looked like another disappointing match turned on its head after Karan KC smashed an unbeaten 42. Here is how world cricket reacted after the thriller in Namibia:
As the game wasn’t shown on TV most of the fans were keeping track of the game online. Doing that isn’t particularly easy and the fans agree.

Most people had given up hope after Nepal were 9 down. Some believed in miracles.
“If you didn’t believe in miracles before, you might start after yesterday’s match.”#NepalvsCanada

Lamichane and KC had other ideas.
Canada’s players all dropped to their knees after the final ball. When Dutta took the ninth wicket, they were celebrating as if they’d won. But Karan KC and Sandeep Lamichhane said not today.

The former coach believes it’s not a miracle and finisher KC is thankful.
We are the results of your inspiration, hard work and dedication sir! Thank you for grooming me. You are the best.

KC is also getting a lot of praise for his destructive batting.

There are those who expressed their displeasure that these games weren’t shown on TV.
Unbelievable drama in cricket’s World Cup qualifiers – World Cricket League Division 2 – and yet not live streamed. Absolutely ridiculous, especially given Nepal are cricket crazy. Cricket leaving $ on the table by not streaming these games
