Qatar, who lost their first match of the ICC World Twenty20 Asia Qualifier 2019 final to Singapore by 33 runs on Monday, register a huge upset win over tournament favourites Nepal in Match 3 of the Qualifier final on Tuesday, registering a tense four-wicket win at the Indian Association Ground, Singapore. <p></p> <p></p>After bundling out Nepal for 122 in their 20 overs, Qatar chased down the target with four balls to spare with opener Inam-ul-Haq top-scoring with 41 off 32 balls. No.8 batsman Nouman Sarwar s unbeaten run-a-ball 15 and Mohammed Rizlan s 9* off 15 helped Qatar get over the finishing line. <p></p> <p></p>Nepal, batting first, got off to a decent start with openers Paras Khadka and Gyanendra Malla adding 49 for the opening wicket. But once the partnership was broken, except Dipendra Singh Airee s labourous 34 off 35 balls was the only other significant contribution. The last six Nepal batsmen were all dismissed in single figures with Iqbal Hussain s 3/21 taking care of the lower order. <p></p> <p></p>Qatar lost opener Faisal Javed for 1 before Inam and Kamran Khan batted briskly. Karan KC got Kamran after the batsman had struck 22 off 15 with a couple of boundaries and sixes each but Imam went from strength to strength, gaining confidence with each shot. Sandeep Lamichhane inflicted damage on the Qatar middle order and finished with 3/33. <p></p> <p></p>When Imam was run out, the door seemed to be shutting on Qatar, but lower order resistance from Rizlan and Sarwar guided the side home. <p></p> <p></p>The Sigapore vs Kuwait game, the second of the day, was washed out.
