Kathmandu, June 24
Nepal crashed out of the semifinal of the ACC Women’s T20 Championship 2022 after rain intervened during the second innings of their match against the UAE at the Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur on Friday.
Winning the toss, Nepal put the UAE to bat first. As a place in the Asia Cup was on the line, Nepal started the match with a lot of intent and bowled very well.
Ashmina Karmacharya impressed with the ball picking up five wickets as Nepal dismissed a strong UAE team for only 81 runs. Indu Barma and Sita Rana Magar picked up three and two wickets respectively to give Nepal a great chance at reaching the final and qualifying.
But, that was it. Before Nepal could come out to bat, rain disrupted and the match was called off. As the UAE had a better record during the group stage, they progressed to the finals of the ACC Women’s T20 Championship and booked a place in the Women’s Asia Cup, leaving Nepalis distraught.
