Kathmandu, August 23
Nepal have lost to hots Malaysia in a rain-affected by six wickets in the ongoing T20I Women’s Quadrangular Series being held in Malaysia.
Despite the loss, Nepal have reached the final where they will face Hong Kong on Saturday.
Being asked to bat in overcast conditions, Nepal did not do well with the bat. Like the previous two matches, Nepal lost its opener in the first over as Puja Mahato was trapped leg before wicket.
Wickets continued to fall as Nepali batters struggled with constant stoppage due to rain. Captain Rubina Chhetry played a handy innings of 23 while Indu Barma once against played well for her 20 to take Nepal to 83 runs in the allotted 18 overs.
In reply, Malaysia got there with relative ease. The Nepali bowlers could not trouble the Malaysian batters who won the match with 10 balls to spare.
