    Nepal beat Canada by a wicket. They are through to the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers along with UAE. UAE prevail over Canada due to superior NRR.

  • 9:13 PM IST

    MIRACLE! Nepal win this thriller out of nowhere due to Karan KC’s heroics. He is their national hero for sure.

  • 8:53 PM IST

    21 off 13 balls. If they seal this, this would be a miracle.

  • 8:49 PM IST

    This is getting interesting. Nepal are still fighting it out. They need 30 off 19 balls with one wicket remaining.

  • 8:30 PM IST

    Nepal have lost the plot completely. They are nine down for 144.

  • 8:04 PM IST

    Nepal are losing the track here. Paudel dismissed by Dhindsa on 27.

  • 8:02 PM IST

    The batsmen are making sure they keep rotating the strike. Boundaries have dried up a bit but what is more important for Nepal that they keep wickets in hand. They have already lost half their side. Nepal 125/5 after 37 overs.

  • 7:52 PM IST

    Play to resume in few minutes.

  • 7:36 PM IST

    The umpires have called for covers. According to D/L method Nepal is still 10 runs behind.

  • 7:31 PM IST

    Dilon Heyliger might have not got a wicket in the match but has bowled brilliantly giving only 14 runs off his 6 overs.

  • 7:27 PM IST

    We just hope the rain gods don’t interfere much in the match. It has started to drizzle but the play is on.

  • 7:14 PM IST

    So the play has resumed, thankfully and Aarif Sheikh has gone for the kill now. Nepal fighting it out at 93/5, need 102 to win

  • 7:10 PM IST

    And there you go a wicket falls and rains have played spoilsport as well. Remember there is reserve day but since 20 overs are completed, the results of this match will be dependent on DLS method. As per that Nepal are 29 runs short. Does not look good for Nepal anymore.

  • 6:56 PM IST

    OUT! Vesawkar dismissed for 1 by Saad Bin Zafar, Nepal now 4 down.

  • 6:50 PM IST

    Pervez gets the big fish! It is Dilip Nath who was striking the ball well.

  • 6:48 PM IST

    Dilip Nath and Dipendra Singh are stitching a vital stand for Nepal. They are now 71 for 2 in 21 overs.

  • 6:31 PM IST

    50 up for Nepal in 17 overs. They require 145 off 33 overs.

  • 6:17 PM IST

    Dilip Nath needs to carry on for long. He obviously would need support at the other end. Match is nicely poised at the moment. Nepal 44/2

  • 6:08 PM IST

    Dilip Nath looks well set with his 25. He will have to play an innings like Wijeratne to secure Nepal’s place in the final. Nepal 39/2 after 12 overs.

  • 5:53 PM IST

    Pervez the only player who did not bat for Canada has picked up two Nepal wickets by now which includes Paras Khadka’s golden duck.

  • 5:38 PM IST

    Nepal chased 178 against UAE few days ago, can they do it again in the ‘do or die’ game. They have had a steady start with Nath and Malla. Nepal 16/0 after 6 overs.

  • 4:46 PM IST

    So Canada manage 194 for 8 in 50 overs. The innings was provided impetus only by centurion, Wijeratne. He remains unbeaten, carrying his bat, on 103*. Will Nepal batsmen rise to the occasion in this all-important encounter? Their batting unit hasn’t clicked so far in the tournament.

  • 4:39 PM IST

    100 for Wijeratne. What a way he has stood tall amidst constant fall of wickets. Let’s see if he manages to take Canada past the 220-run mark, and make them bat their quota of overs.

  • 4:21 PM IST

    From 131-4, Canada have been reduced to 162 for 8.

  • 4:19 PM IST

    Canada losing wickets consistently. Wijeratne in his 90s, and would be desperately hoping for some miracle.

  • 4:07 PM IST

    Saad Bin Zafar lbw off Sharad Vesawkar…Canada 155/6. They need someone to stick around Wijeratne to cross the 220-run mark.

  • 3:59 PM IST

    Canada 151 for 5 in 40 overs. Wijeratne is batting on 85 (the highest score of the tournament so far), and will be eager to take the side over 230 once, and if, he enters three figures.

  • 3:40 PM IST

    Karan KC puts an end to Hazma Tariq’s cameo. Canada now 5 down but Wijeratne has still held his ground and scoring from one end. Canada 131 for 5 after 36 overs.

  • 3:16 PM IST

    The last 5 overs have been good for Canada as they have managed to score 28 runs off it. Wijeratne anchoring the innings batting on 74. Can he register first century of the league?

  • 2:55 PM IST

    OUT! The spinners continue to trouble the Canadians. Regmi gets Dhaliwal on 4. What Nepal has done well is they have taken wickets at regular intervals but failed to get Wijeratne out. Canada 72/4 after 26 overs.

Nepal-vs-canada

Hello and welcome to CricketCountry’s live coverage of ICC World Cricket League Division 2 match between Nepal and Canada. This is Match 13 of the tournament, and here we will bring you all the live updates and the scores of the game. Nepal are in a fix. They have to beat Canada to not just earn their spot in the final of the tournament but also seal their berth in the ICC World Cup Qualifiers 2018 that will be held in March at Zimbabwe. After Nepal brushed aside Kenya in the previous match, they took the second spot in the standings. However, with Namibia thrashing Kenya on Tuesday, Nepal have been pulled down to No. 3 spot in the table. 

Considering Namibia are also playing UAE today, Nepal’s position is under serious threat. Nepal have so far had thrilling win against their opponents in the tournaments. All the matches have gone down till the last ball. Sandeep Lamichhane and Paras Khadka have been their backbones. All Nepal would hope is that their regular stars shine in a must-win contest.

Canada as well have had a fabulous campaign. They have won three games off four and would hope to keep their top position intact.

Nepal: Paras Khadka (c), Gyanendra Malla (wk), Anil Sah, Dipendra Singh Airee, Sharad Vesawkar, Aarif Sheikh, Rohit Kumar, Sompal Kami, KC Karan, Basant Regmi, Sandeep Lamichhane, Dilip Nath, Shakti Gauchan, Lalit Bhandari
