Kathmandu, March 6

In their last match, the Rhinos beat the hosts UAE by 42 runs, with five overs remaining.
Unlike their previous matches, Nepal chose to bat first today, but they could not perform well in the beginning. Nonetheless, they improved in the middle order thanks to Bhim Sarki’s 70 runs to end the innings with a total of 229 runs.
Chasing the target, the UAE could score only 187 runs by the end of 45 overs when all of their batters were out. For Nepal, Dipendra Singh Airee and Sompal Kami took three wickets each from the opponents.
In this series under the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2, Nepal defeated the PNG in both matches whereas they were taken down by the hosts.
As the current series has come to an end, Nepal are one step ahead of the UAE in the league table.
The same three teams will meet for another tri-series under the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 in Kathmandu beginning this Thursday.
