Nepali U 19 Cricket PlayersKathmandu / Jul 17 : Nepal made a winning start of the ICC Asia Under-19s World Cup Qualifier by defeating the hosts Singapore by 4 wickets in the opening match of the campaign on Monday.

The match was played at the Padang Field of Singapore’s Cricket Club.Nepal won the toss and invited the hosts to take the first strike of the match.

However, Singapore could not capatalise on the sunny batting wicket and exploit the home conditions as they mustered a meagre total of 72 runs in 29 overs of their allotted 50 overs.

Nepal’s skipper Sandeep Lamichanne racked havoc as his leg spin tormented the hosts batting line up. Lamichanne was pick of the bowler as he took 8-2-21-5.

Shahab Alam and Kishore Mahato took 3 and 2 scalps respectively.

In reply, Nepal got off to a disastrous start as openers Sandeep Sunar and Aasif Sheikh trudged back to the pavilion cheaply. Nepal’s fragile batting has wobbled in the junior side as well.
