Nepal VS Namibia - Head to Head

Feb 06, 2018 | Cricketingnepal |
Nepal are taking on hosts Namibia in their first match of the ICC World Cricket League Division 2 in Windhoek on Thursday.

The two teams have met each other five times so far -- thrice in List A games, once in a 50-over one day and in a warm-up fixture. Nepal are the clear winners in all the three List A games.

In the first encounter between the two sides, Nepal were comprehensively beaten by eight wickets in the 2001 ICC Trophy -- now the World Cup Qualifiers. After being bundled out for jus 131 runs, Nepal couldn't stop Namibia from reaching the total in just 32.4 overs.

Their next meeting was possible in the 2014 ICC World Cup Qualifiers in New Zealand in an official practice game. Nepal had lost the game by four runs after managing just 227-9 in chase of Namibia's 232.

In the 2015 ICC World Cricket League Division 2 in Namibia, Nepal defeated the hosts in their first List A clash by three wickets. Nepal had bundled out Namibia for 142 runs in 49.1 overs after Karan KC took three wickets. Skipper Paras Khadka then made 64 off 56 as Nepal chased down the target in just 37.5 overs. 

The next two victories for Nepal came in the ICC World Cricket League Championship in Kathmandu. Sharad Vesawkar remained calm with an unbeaten half century to give Nepal a five-wicket victory in the first game chasing a target of 196 runs in 47.1 overs.

The second match saw Paras making a century and Sharad contributing with yet another unbeaten half century in a three-wicket win. Nepal had restricted Namibia to 239-9 before Paras made a brilliant 103 and Sharad scored 74 not out as Nepal reached the target in 49.5 overs.
