Pun spins Nepal to victory

Offspinner finishes with figures of 3 for 12 as Denmark folds for 79 after electing to bat first
56489
Nepal thrashed Denmark by five wickets in the Group B tie to register its first win in the ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier at the ICC Academy Ground No.2 in Dubai on Friday (November 15).
 
Winning the toss and electing to bat first, Denmark got off to the worst of starts, putting up just 43 runs in 11 overs, and losing five wickets in the process. Hamid Shah (18) and Michael Pedersen (15), the captain, then stitched together a brief partnership of 23 runs, the highest of the match. But, a lack of any significant individual score or partnership meant Denmark could only post 79 runs by the time it was bowled out in 19.4 overs. Sagar Pun, the off-break bowler, picked up three wickets giving away just 12 runs in three overs.
 
In pursuit of the paltry score, Nepal was caught off guard with two wickets going down without any runs on the board. Subash Khakurel (17) and Paras Khadka (48), the Nepal captain, then rebuilt the innings with a 67-run stand. But, with both batsmen departing in quick succession, and Binod Bhandari out for a duck, Nepal encountered a minor scare with the scoreboard reading 68 for 5. But, 79 was just too small a total to defend for Denmark as Sharad Vesawkar and Pun ensured there were no more hiccups along the way, completing a five-wicket win for Nepal with 41 balls to spare. Kamran Mahmood, the right-arm fast medium bowler, ended with figures of 2 for 4 for Denmark.
