Nepal into world cup qualifier with Karan's brilliance


Nepal defeated Canada by 1 wicket to secure a place in the World Cup qualifiers. Nepal chased down a target of 195 in the last ball of the second inning to register a thrilling win against Canada. Nepal finishes in at the top of the table with 8 points.

Karan KC was the star for Nepal as he blasted 42 runs from 31 balls with 4 sixes and 3 fours. Karan added 51 runs from 7.5 overs for the last wicket with Sandeep Lamichhane to guide Nepal to victory.

Canada was on top of the game when Nepal was 144/9 and still required 50+ runs with just one wicket in hand. The match went to the last over with Nepal requiring 8 runs to win from the last over. First four balls of the last over were dots as the game shifted towards Canada. But Karan scored a six in fifth ball to make the equation 2 runs to win from 1 ball. A wide ball then meant sure that the scores were leveled. A single run in the last ball was enough to seal the victory for the Nepali team.
