- (Source: ICC)Nepal secured a historic entry into the upcoming World Cup qualifiers with a sensational last-ball one-wicket win over Canada in the ICC World Cricket League Division Two here today.
- Chasing a modest 195, built around Srimantha Wijeratne’s unbeaten 103, Nepal were staring down the barrel at one stage having lost nine wickets for 144.
- Nepal needed eight runs off the last over and Canada medium-pacer Cecil Parvez delivered four dot balls, before Karan smacked a six off the fifth ball.
- Earlier, Wijeratne’s maiden List A hundred helped Canada post a modest 194 for eight as Nepal spinners Basant Regmi (3/34) and Lamichhane (2/40) kept the opposition batsmen under a tight leash.
