  • 8:15 PM IST

    Nepal are almost through the finishing line. What resilience Aarif Sheikh and Rohit Kumar. The duo added 87-run stand for fifth wicket. Yet, Nepal has not lost it all. They need just 9 runs to win.

  • 7:46 PM IST

    And this is turning out to be a thrilling contest. Nepal need 40 off 42. After dragging the game so far it has become a close affair. Just what has been happening with Nepal in the previous games.

  • 7:23 PM IST

    Nepal are crawling to their target. With 16 overs to go, Nepal can reach the target. However, they need to keep the wickets intact. Still require 68 to win

  • 6:51 PM IST

    The wickets have started tumbling for Nepal. Vesawkar who looked in good stead also has been pocketed by Kenya. Nepal need still 96 while Kenya need 5 wickets to win

  • 6:37 PM IST

    Huge wicket for Kenya. Khadka looked dangerous and he gone for 42. He did most of his part but there is a long way for Nepal. ANother 106 needed while Kenya need 6 wickets to win

  • 6:24 PM IST

    Khadka and Vesawkar bring up fifty partnership between them. The equation also is just a run a ball for Nepal. Just 100 needed for them. However, the wickets need to be intact for chasing a gettable target.

  • 6:06 PM IST

    And that is 50 up for Nepal. What a blistering recovery, courtesy Khadka. Vesawkar is happy playing second fiddle. Now Nepal need 126 to win

  • 6:00 PM IST

    Khadka seems to have found his form back. First a four and now Six. Looks like another Khadka show is up for grabs today. Nepal 37/3, need 141 to win

  • 5:46 PM IST

    The first boundary of the innings comes from Vesawkar’s willow. Nepal have finally found their groove. However, they have a monumental task ahead.

  • 5:39 PM IST

    Ringera is on a roll. He bags his third wicket and Airee goes back to the hut. Nepal are losing the plot here at 14/3 in just 5.4 overs

  • 5:37 PM IST

    The pressure is mounting on Khadka and Airee with 2 wickets down plus maiden over coming their way. Not the ideal start that Nepal had imagined. Can Khadka star once again for his side?

  • 5:29 PM IST

    As we know Kenya are yet to win a game in this tournament. They seem to be interested in ending this game soon. Nepal are 2 down. Malla and Sah are gone for cheap. Ringera shines. Nepal 11/2, need 167 to win

  • 5:28 PM IST

    And we are back for the second innings.

  • 4:29 PM IST

    And that’s the end of the Kenya innings. They have set a target of 178 to win for Nepal, despite all the loss of wickets. Ngoche exploded in the final overs with couple of boundaries. Can Nepal batsmen come good against Kenya bowlers?

  • 4:20 PM IST

    Kenya have hit the first SIX of the innings. Nepal bowlers now being hammered after Lamichhane gets done with his spell. Can Kenya post 170 with 2 wickets in hand and 2 overs to go?

  • 4:07 PM IST

    And with Kenya 8 down, it is fifer for Sandeep Lamichhane! Bravo, young lad!

  • 4:03 PM IST

    Just when Kenya have picked up their innings, the wickets have tumbled. Kenya have lost 2 more wickets. Sompal Kami gets one while Vesawkar gets one. Kenya 135/7 after 44.1 overs

  • 3:51 PM IST

    Kenya have come well after losing wickets in the middle. A 150 is achievable for them as I had mentioned earlier with 8 more overs to go. Kenya 125 for 5.

  • 3:16 PM IST

    Lamichhane is on a hat-trick here. Another wicket down for Kenya

  • 3:13 PM IST

    Basant Regmi has struck now. Another blow for Kenya and Karim goes for 42 after a long stay. Meanwhile, Lamichhane has picked his third and RR Patel makes his way back as well. Nepal getting successive wickets here and Kenya down to 104/4 after 33.1 overs

  • 2:56 PM IST

    Nepal are bowling very cut to cut to Kenya. The flow of runs has reduced considerably. The Kenya batsmen are only dealing with ones and twos. A total of 150 would also prove to be competitive. Kenya 92/2 after 29 overs

  • 2:16 PM IST

    Lamichhane is on a roll here. He has scalped two wickets and gets new batsman Gondaria for cheap. Kenya now stuttering at 71/2

  • 2:07 PM IST

    And Sandeep Lamichhane does the trick. He breaks the the long partnership and picks the dangerous man Obanda. Kenya 65/1 after 17 overs

  • 2:03 PM IST

    The opening partnership has soared to 62. Looks like Kenya is looking to maintain their record over Nepal. If we look at the past few matches between these sides, Nepal has won just once while Kenya has dominated them. This will be a crackling match for sure. Kenya 62/0 after 16 overs

  • 1:26 PM IST

    Kenya have picked the pace. They would be happy with the start provided by the openers. However, Nepal would seek a wicket here to get the momentum back in their side. Kenya 20/0 after 7 overs

  • 1:19 PM IST

    And the first boundary also comes Kenya’s way. Karim has tagged along with Obanda to get some runs. Kenya has kicked off with 15 runs from 5 overs. That accelerated quickly.

  • 1:14 PM IST

    Kenya, finally, getting some runs. Obanda has got a couple. They need some runs on board to post a competitive target against Nepal who have been good so far in the league. Kenya 6/0 from 3.4 overs

  • 1:08 PM IST

    Karan KC begins with a maiden over. Excellent bowling from Nepal here. Meanwhile, Anil has been included in the squad and Dilip Nath is out. Dilip has been their mainstay batsman. Surely Nepal should have thought through while taking this.

  • 1:05 PM IST

    Kenya have gone off the mark with a single. Sompal Kami, Nepal’s star in the tournament so far, began the attack. Kenya 1/0 after 1 over, Dhiren Gondaria 1* and Alex Obanda 0*
