National Games: APF in semis

Batting first, APF posted 149 for 6, thanks largely to Veswakar’s 74 off 54 balls with 5 sixes. In reply, Western Region could just manage 43, as Paras Khadka opened the bowling to snare 4 wickets. His fellow bowling opener Mehboob Alam managed 3 wickets for 3 runs in his 4-over spell. For Western Region, only Akash Gupta could manage double figures, with 21 runs to his credit.
