Bangladesh batters have forgettable outing

Nepal won the toss and chose to field first on a surface that has not seen too many runs being scored. Nepal got off to a strong start, picking up Tanzin Hasan’s wicket on the first ball of the match. From then on, Bangladesh kept losing wickets at regular intervals as no batter could stay long enough at the crease to mitigate Bangladesh’ trouble.

Four bowlers of Nepal, namely Sompal Kami, Dipendra Singh Airee, Rohit Paudel and Sandeep Lamichhane took two wickets each while Nepal fielders also executed two run outs.
