Nepal qualifies for ICC Under 19 World Cup 2012

On a day when rains affected all but one game, plenty of action was witnessed as the jostling for the final six spots to qualify for the ICC U19 Cricket World Cup to be held next year in Australia heated up.

Hosts Ireland featured in another last over finish, this time against Nepal at the Bready Cricket Club. Nepal batted first and was restricted to 187 for seven in 46 overs as rains forced reduction in the number of overs. Ireland skipper George Dockrell picked up 3-15 even as Sagar Pun made 50 off 100 balls with three boundaries and a six.

In the chase, the home team lost early wickets, but Dockrell (55: 86b, 3×4) and Adam Coughlan (48:86b, 1×4) added 107 runs for the fifth wicket.

Once the partnership was broken, the chase fell apart. Nepal’s left-arm spinner Rahul Vishvakarma picked up four wickets in the final over to bowl out Ireland for 175 and earned his side a 10-run win.

Dockrell’s all-round effort earned him the Man of the Match award, but the skipper was a disappointed man: “We bowled well to restrict them, but they got a few runs towards the end which helped them a lot. The match was in the balance and we seemed to be getting close. But we lost wickets towards the end. We still have two more games to end the tournament well.”

    Why the responsible news source like CricNepal is giving the wrong information?
    Nepal is still not through yet. Till now only Scotland has qualified and balance 5 spots are still open. Nepal and Irelend both still not yet qualified and can happen anything.
    So please don’t give wrong information to the world.

    really really happy and proud that you all  qualified for ICC U19 in Australia.

    I really would like to Request CAN to give Nepali cricket team more international exposure before participating in Australia. We can go to Bangaldesh, Srilanka, India and play some friendly games over there or we can also call team from those country to play games in our country.

    Long term plans can be also like organising SAARC games like we play saarc football.Why not SAARC cricket tournament

    But please CAN take our cricket team atleast one month ahead in Australia so that they can climatise in Australian condition , so that they can play some game with local team in Australia and climatise with all the playing condition.

    We really have to work hard and try to achieve more than this cause Nepali team can do more than  this
