Nepal goes to table top with D/L win

Bowlers ensure Singapore wins match against Bermuda on reserve day of ICC World Cricket League Division 3 matches

Nepal goes to table top with D/L win - Cricket News
Shakti Gauchan returned figures of 3 for 30 for Nepal.
With rain not allowing any play on Monday, two matches of the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Division 3 took place on Tuesday (October 28), the reserve day. The Singapore bowlers did well to ensure a three-wicket win for the side against Bermuda, while Nepal came through for a narrow 10-run win against the United States of America via the Duckworth-Lewis Method. Victory put Nepal on top of the points table, taking it ahead of Uganda.
 
At the Kinrara Academy Oval, USA's openers got the team off to a steady start after Steve Massiah, the captain, had chosen to bat first. Fahad Babar shared an opening stand of 64 with Steven Taylor before scoring his first half-century of the tournament. Timil Patel added another 39 and Muhammad Ghous’ late 18-ball 27 took USA to 223 for 9 in 50 overs. For Nepal, Shakti Gauchan returned figures of 3 for 30.
 
Rain threatened the proceedings once again, and with Nepal 73 for 1 in 22 overs, no further play was possible. The Duckworth-Lewis target after 22 overs was 64, giving Nepal victory. Opener Subash Khakurel remained unbeaten on 49, helping Nepal eventually win. Nepal now remains tied at 6 points with Uganda, but is ahead due to a higher net run-rate.

Chaminda Ruwan then led the chase, scoring a brisk 57 at the top of the order. Singapore lost two wickets in the first two overs, but Ruwan kept the innings steady early on. Singapore faltered as the innings progressed with seven wickets falling, but got over the line in 31.3 overs.
 
Leverock inflicted most damage returning figured of 3 for 16 in five overs.
