    Craig Williams all round efforts have been wasted here. He scored good looking 41 runs in the first innings and picked up 3 wickets in the second but failed to take his team home. On the other hand Regmi picked up 1 wicket in the first innings and scored run a ball 24 to secure a wicket win for Nepal with 4 balls remaining.

  • 9:05 PM IST

    Basant Regmi has pulled out a thriller chase here. It was a low scoring game but Namibia bowled well to keep it tight till the last over. Nepal win by 1 wicket. NAmibia will be very disappointed here they had the upper hand in the match.

  • 9:03 PM IST

    7 off the last over. Regmi on strike. This match has been an absolute thriller. Scholtz to bowl the last over, he has taken 4 wickets so far but this is the over that will matter the most.

  • 9:00 PM IST

    SIX! This has come from nowhere. Before the six Burger had conceded only 7 runs from his 9.3 overs. Can Regmi be the hero for Nepal today?

  • 8:58 PM IST

    Burger into the attack now, Lamicchane on strike. Burger has bowled brilliantly so far. Can Lamicchane survive this over and Regmi hit the winning runs?

  • 8:51 PM IST

    Nepal are 9 down now. Lamicchane in the middle, he has no batting experience whatsoever. Namibia are on the top here. They only need a wicket. The contest is run a ball now. 18 needed off 18.

  • 8:40 PM IST

    There is indeed pressure around. Craig Wilimas have made field changes thrice in the over. Nepal need 21 of 30 with 2 wickets in hand.

  • 8:36 PM IST

    The match has started and Nepal now need 26 more runs with 2 wickets in hand. This match is going to be a close one.

  • 7:27 PM IST

    And rain has spoiled the party here. Delay in the finish of the game.

  • 7:24 PM IST

    Another wicket down. The match is going down the wire. Smart bowling from Namibia. So Namibia need 2 wickets while Nepal require 31 runs to win. Who will reach the finish line first?
