Nepal also lost against Hong Kong

After winning four games in a row in the group stage, Nepal reached the semi-finals and lost two games in a row. The previous day, Nepal was defeated by UAE by 6 wickets in the semi-final. With the defeat in the semi-final, Nepal's qualification for the Asia Cup ended. Had they won against Hong Kong, they would have qualified for the ACC Emerging Cup scheduled to take place in November. That possibility of Nepal has also ended.

Nepal came to bat after winning the toss at Al Ameret located in Muscat and could score only 139 runs after losing 8 wickets in the scheduled 20 overs. After Anshuman Rath scored an unbeaten 65, Hong Kong reached the target with 3 balls to spare. He hit 4 fours and 2 sixes while playing 50 balls. Narsulla Rana remained unbeaten on 11 runs. Rana scored all the runs in the last over when Hong Kong needed 8 runs for victory.

Babar Hayat scored 26 off 25 balls with 2 sixes and Aijaz Khan scored 12 runs off 10 balls. Captain Nizakat Khan was dismissed for 3 runs. From Nepal, Sompal Kami took 3 wickets with 33 runs in 4 overs and Dipendra Singh Airey took 2 wickets with 27 runs in 4 overs.

was made possible after Dipendra scored 20 runs with 2 fours and a six in the last over. Dipendra, who batted at 87-7 in Nepal's 14th over, played 29 balls and hit a total of 4 fours and 3 sixes. Before he came in to bat at number eight, Nepal was struggling to score 100 runs.

On the previous day of the tournament being held in Oman, Nepal could only score 119 runs in the semi-final, and if it failed to reach the final, it was denied to qualify for the Asia Cup. Nepal continued the same kind of performance in the match against Hong Kong on Saturday.

Nepal's disappointing performance started with the bat of Kushal Bhurtel. On the second ball of the innings, Kushal reached to catch the wicketkeeper before opening the account. He was dismissed for the third match in a row. Bhurtel, who got out on the first ball in the semi-final against UAE, was also dismissed for a wicket against Saudi Arabia.

Another opener Asif Shaikh could only score 5 runs. Sompal, who was sent at number three, hit 2 fours and scored 12 runs in 7 balls. Captain Rohit Poudel was dismissed for 21 runs off 19 balls and Sandeep Zora was dismissed for 21 runs off 23 balls. Zora and Gushalan Jha (6) were run out on successive balls.

Kushal Malla, who hit a six, could score only 13 runs in 14 balls. Lalit Rajvanshi scored 2 runs in 3 balls and remained unbeaten. At the end of 17 overs, Nepal was able to hit only 5 fours and 1 six, so Nepal's score was 100 runs.
