Nepal Made History By defeating India In ACC Asia Cup Cricket 2017



India faced a shocking defeat to Nepal in the Under-19 Asia Cup 2017. At the Bayuemas Oval, Kuala Lumpur on Sunday, India won the toss and put Nepal to bat. Aditya Thakare got India to a good start, removing two of the top batsmen early. Nepal skipper Dipendra Singh built the turning partnership with Jitendra Singh Thakuri. Dipendra’s 88 led Nepal to 185 for 8 at the end of their 50 overs. Thakuri was the second-highest scorer of the innings, and only three players scored in double-digits.

Though India started off well, skipper Dipendra ran through the middle order to restrict India at 166. Openers Himanshu Rana and Manjot Kalra built up a big partnership but the middle order faltered. Rana’s 46 was the highest by any batsman in the innings. Dipendra picked up 4-for and led his team from front. Pawan Sarraf and Shahab Alam picked up 2 wickets each. Nepal bundled India for 166 with 1.5 overs still remaining, registering a 19-run victory.
