Social Media erupts after Nepal secures ODI status

Nepal defeated Papua New Guinea in a crucial play-off match of ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier by 6 wickets today. Despite the win, Nepal had to wait for the outcome of another playoff match between the Netherlands and Hong Kong.

Nepal had to win against PNG and had to expect Hong Kong’s loss against the Netherlands to earn them a One day International status for next four years.

Every single Nepali fan, who were celebrating Nepal’s win against PNG earlier today, were closely following the score and desperately waiting for that one moment they were waiting & dreaming for.

As expected, Hong Kong failed to chase a modest target of 175 and lost the match by 44 runs. Soon after, International Cricket Council (ICC) officially announced Nepal as a new ODI nation.

With the announcement, the social media erupted. From Nepali fans, current & former players, stakeholders, politicians, even Ex-Prime Minister all shared their happiness on Social media for Nepal’s historical day.
