Nepal A

Nepal A clinched a nail-biting 3-run victory over Ireland A in the third T20 match, despite ultimately losing the three-match series 2-1.

Faced with a challenging target of 214, Ireland A put up a valiant effort, finishing with 210 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. Gareth Delany (68 off 37) and Morgan Topping (60 off 37) shone with a crucial century partnership, but their dismissals proved pivotal. Rashid Khan sealed Nepal A’s dramatic win, conceding 16 runs and taking a wicket in the final over.

Bipin Khatri led Nepal A’s bowling attack, taking 3 wickets for 23 runs. Narayan Joshi, Kamal Singh Airee, and Rashid Khan each added a wicket to the tally.

Aarif Sheikh’s Explosive Innings

Batting first, Nepal A posted an imposing 213/7. Aarif Sheikh was the star, blasting an unbeaten 93 off just 47 balls, with Kamal Singh Airee providing late fireworks (19 off 7). However, Ireland A’s bowlers struck early to limit Nepal A’s top-order contributions.

Despite their thrilling third-match victory, Nepal A couldn’t overcome early series losses. The two sides now turn their attention to an ODI series, starting on Wednesday, with matches also scheduled for Friday and Sunday.
