Nepal take on familiar foes Thailand

After opening their tournament with a crushing 221-run over Iran on Tuesday, Nepal are taking on tough opponents Thailand in their second match of the ACC Women’s Premier Cricket Tournament on Thursday.

 

Nepal women have played five matches till date against the hosts and out of them they have won only two matches while lost other three. Both the teams had met each other during the semi finals of the ACC Women’s Championship 2013 where Nepal lost the match by seven wickets.

 

On the eve of the crucial encounter, national team skipper Rubina Chhetri said: “It’s a must-win match for us. If we eye a top spot in the standings then we have to defeat Thailand under any conditions. All of us are really eager to relieve us from the wound we were inflicted during last year’s ACC Women’s Championship loss.”

 

Nepal’s coach Umesh Raj Upadhyay knows his team cannot compromise with less than a victory if the team aims at winning the target. “Tomorrow’s match is do-or-die for us. If we win tomorrow then we can assume that we have taken a huge stride towards the title. A win against Thailand will also be a huge morale booster for us,” said the coach.
