Kathmandu, November 28
Nepal have failed to qualify for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier.
Nepal had the possibility of reaching the next round if they had won their last Asia Regional Qualifier match against the UAE on Sunday. However, they lost the match played in Dubai to the hosts by 48 runs.
Batting first, the UAE had posted a 128-run target for Nepal to follow, but they could only score 79 runs before they lost all wickets.
Meanwhile, the hosts have been qualified for the Global Qualifier as they ended the regional round with five straight victories. Nepal won three but lost two of the matches played.
Mathematically, Nepal, however, still hold some possibility of playing the next qualifier as the best team among the regional runners-up. But, this will depend on teams of other regions. Even if Hong Kong defeat Kuwait during the last Asia Regional Qualifier match today, Nepal will end the event in the third position, and they cannot play the next round.
