Nepal beat Oman by 304 runs

Nepal continued it’s brilliant performance in the ACC U-19 Elite Cup defeating Oman by 304 runs in a match of records at TGC, Bangkok, Thailand.

Nepal scored 391/4 in 50 overs after electing to bat first and bowled out Oman for just 87 in 31.5 overs for the second victory in the tournament.

Nepal’s total matched the highest total at the age-group level scored against the Maldives in 2003 in Karachi, Pakistan.

Nepal’s total was built around century by Faizrul Rahman Khan who became the only third U-19 batsmen after former U-19 captains Shakti Gauchan and Kaniskha Chaugai to reach the milestone. Shakti had scored 100 in 2001 and Kaniskha 125 in 2003 – both against Maldives.

Faizrul scored 101 in 99 balls with 10 fours. He and Subash Khakurel gave a brilliant opening scoring 81 before the latter fell to M Wickremaratne for 27 off 55 balls.

Faizrul then partnered Sagar Pun for a century partnership. The duo who had partnered unbeaten 80 a day earlier against UAE, scored freely to add 110. Faizrul was given leg-before at 101 after a long thought by the umpire.

If Oman had hoped any relief from his wicket, they were proved wrong as Pradeep Airee joined Sagar and they accelerated the scoring rate. Their partnership counted for 127 runs, the second best partnership after 137 by Yashwant Subedi and Kaniskha in 2003 against Maldives, and came in no time.

Sagar was bowled out for 83 off 80 balls by Umair Naeem and Pradeep soon followed after scoring 86 off just 40 balls with six fours and five sixes. Naresh Budayer (37 off 17 balls) and captain Prithu Baskota (22 off 9 balls) finished the overs with a huge total.

In reply, Oman lost wickets frequently. Rahul BK took three for 14 and Avinash Karn grabbed two. They lost three wickets as run-outs – thanks to Krishna Karki. Prithu Baskota and Bhuwan Karki claimed a wicket each.

“It’s a great performance,” Prithu said after the match. “It was a huge total. The opening partnership; and knocks by Sagar and Pradeep set us up.”

“Pradeep is a magnificent player and he played brilliantly today. I hope he will carry on playing like this,” he added.
