Finally, Nepal Makes it to 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifier

UAE dash Namibia's World Cup hopes Sport- Cricket

A belligerent Karan KC (42, 31 balls, three 4s, four 6s) and Nepal's new IPL star Sandeep Lamichhane (5, 18 balls) kept calm amidst the death over tension to take them past the victory target of 195.

Earlier, Srimantha Wijeratne's maiden List-A hundred had pushed Canada to 194 for 8 as the opposition spinners Basant Regmi (3/34) and Lamichhane (2/40) tightened the noose on the batsmen.

Under pressure Pervez bowled a wide leveling the score and gave away a run in a low fulltoss the last ball as Nepal celebrated wildly for an unlikely victory.

"I can't speak, the last wicket made 50 odd runs, cricket is just a victor today". "One in a million times you would win those games".

Pervez took three wickets for 41 runs for Canada (3-2). "We want to do well and help Nepal cricket grow", Khadka said.

This prompted Dunham to have elective surgery to remove her reproductive organs as an attempt to end the pain once and for all. Last April, she said she was "endometriosis-free" after undergoing surgery to move her ovaries away from her rectal wall.

Cricket minnows Nepal have moved a step closer to qualifying for next year's Cricket World Cup after advancing to the qualifying tournament. Canada benefitted from a knee injury to Sandeep, who during his first spell, left the field and when he returned, he wasn't at his best and went for two sixes.

It's back to the drawing board for the National Cricket team following a dismal performance in the ICC Cricket World Cricket league Division two tournament in Windhoek, Namibia.

In an incredibly tight finish to the group stages, Nepal finished on top of the log on eight points, followed by UAE, Canada and Namibia all on six points each, Oman on two and Kenya on zero points.

Gerhard Erasmus (58, 63b, 3×4, 2×6) was yet again the stand out batter, whose attempt to get Namibia across the line was not quite enough.
