Nepal and Namibia on the verge of promotion

Kathmandu – After the completion of four matches, Nepal and Namibia are clinching a berth for their promotion in 2015-2017 ICC Intercontinental Cup and World Cricket League Championship.

Nepal’s future will decide after the match against Kenya where as Namibia will look an eye on unconditional Canada. Both the team are on same points with 3-1 win, Namibia is marginally ahead on the net run rate though. A win over Kenya would put Nepal’s promotion 100% while a loss will be still counted. If Namibia beats Canada and Uganda beats Netherlands, it will boost Nepal.

Canada have to beat Namibia and have to erase 1.196 net run rate deficit. Likewise, Canada is currently behind Nepal by 0.857 NRR and hope for Nepal’s loss to Kenya could see them in top two.

Meanwhile, Netherlands have a slight chance to be in top two due to its bigger NRR deficit against Nepal (1.250) and Namibia (0.911) respectively.

Friday, January 23 2015 will be a big day for Nepal’s cricketing history. Their bowling has talked a lot in African pitches. Their Batting though is still wobbling only Paras Khadka has stood tall against the opponents.

Here are the stats for Nepal in these four matches.
