Nepal impress against Pakistan in friendly match

08 Nov 2022

Malik struck a quickfire fifty - an innings that included five fours and two sixes - and combined with Younis Khan for a 72-run stand. Babar Azam provided the required impetus with a 29-ball 43, including four fours and two sixes, helping the Pakistanis cross the 300-mark in the process.

Nepal were never really in the contest in the chase. Their innings got off to a slow start as openers Anil Mandal and Subash Khakurel added 49 before Yasir broke the stand by having Khakurel caught in the 14th over. Mandal then shared a 79-run partnership with Sagar Pun for the second wicket before Anwar Ali trapped Mandal lbw for 61. Ahmed Shehzad and Wahab Riaz picked up a wicket each to reduce Nepal to 155 for 4 in the 41st over.

Gyanendra Malla offered some resistance towards the end with a 52-ball 41 before he was dismissed off the penultimate delivery of the innings as Nepal finished with 205 for 5. Anwar Ali picked up two wickets but conceded 56 in his 10 overs.
