ICC WCL Div II final: Nepal get 278-run target against UAE

Canadian team, which saw three straight wins in the tournament, was short of a single victory either over Namibia or Nepal for gaining an entry to the World Cup Qualifier tournament, and has finally lost it out. UAE had made an excellent start after opting to bat first with Rohan Mustafa adding 109 for the opening wicket with Ashfaq Ahmed.

For Ashfaq, it was his maiden List A ton, following in the footsteps of Rameez Shahzad who achieved the same feat last month against Scotland, as UAE continue to lessen their dependency on Shaiman Anwar for match-winning totals. "Things have just worked out for us, we have been working so hard for all these years and eventually it has happened for us, I am speechless".

Earlier, Nepal had defeated UAE by four wickets on the ninth match of the series on the same field held on February 11. Khadka kept waging a lone battle in which he hit eight sixes but his unbeaten century couldn't prevent a narrow seven-run loss.

Sandeep grabbed 17 wickets in 6 matches, and was awarded man of the match in two of Nepal's victories. Whether it was Mohammad Naveed's medium pace in the 48th, or Mustafa's offspin in the 49th, UAE's bowlers restricted Khadka with pinpoint accuracy on a yorker length, as Nepal entered the final over needing 28. Skipper Shem Ngoche and Nehemiah Odhiambo then combined in a 91-run stand for the eighth wicket to rescue Kenya from blushes and post 253 on the board.
