Kathmandu, June 20

Nepal recorded their third straight win in the ongoing ACC Women’s T20 Championship as they beat Bahrain by eight wickets at the Kinrara Oval in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

With this victory, Nepal have booked a place in the semi-final of the tournament.

Winning the toss, Nepal asked Bahrain to bat first. Nepali bowlers dominated as they did not let the Bahrain batters settle.

Kabita Kunwar impressed as she took two wickets and was involved in a runout. Sabnam Rai picked up two wickets and Ashmina Karmacharya took one in the rain-affected match as Bahrain could only score 14 runs in 7 overs.

In reply, Nepal only took 3.4 overs to chase down the total losing two wickets to maintain a 100 per cent record in the competition as it tops the table.

Prior to this, Nepal beat Bhutan by 50 runs and Kuwait by 25 runs. Nepal will play Hong Kong on Wednesday.

The finalist of the ACC Women’s T20 Championship will get to play the Women’s Asia Cup T20 scheduled to be held in October.
