KATHMANDU: The Nepali women cricket team has returned home today after participating in the ACC Women’s T-20 Championship.
Nepal had reached the semi-final of this tournament held in Malaysia.
Nepal was eliminated from the Championship after the first semi-final match between Nepal and the UAE on June 25 was called off due to rain.
With this, Nepal’s hope of being selected for the Asia Cup was dashed.
Nepal had restricted UAE to 81 runs in the semi final match. Nepal, who had been posed victory target of 82 runs by UAE, did not get chance for batting due to rain.
Nepal had to exit in this way from the championship from this semi-final match itself. Nepal had defeated Bhutan, Kuwait and Bahrain in the group stage matches while conceding defeat at the hands of Hong Kong.
