Nepal-Thailand match washed out by rain

Nepal’s ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Asia Qualifiers campaign began on Monday with a share of spoils against hosts Thailand in Bangkok.

At the Terdthai Cricket Grounds, Nepal elected field first and after some fight back from the middle order the hosts managed to reach 90-6 in 20 overs. Opener Jyoti Pandey (four) and Sarita Magar (five) were starting steadily but rain played spoilsport. Nepal were 10-0 in 3.4 overs when rain interrupted the game and washed out the day.

Nepal will now meet Hong Kong in their second match at the same ground. The top two teams after the round robin league will not only enter the final but also secure spots in the 2018 ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Global Qualifiers to be held in the Netherlands.

In the match on Monday, Nepal had reduced Thailand to 42-5 in nine overs but Naruemol Chaiwai pushed the team close triple figures adding 26 runs for the sixth wicket with skipper Sornarin Tippoch (15) and 22 runs for the seventh with Chanida Sutthiruang who made a run-a-ball 13.

Chaiwai was the leading scorer for Thailand making a 37-ball 23. The only two boundaries of Thailand innings came from opener Nattaya Chantam who made a run-a-ball 18. For Nepal, Sarita Magar took 2-11 from four overs for Nepal and captain Rubin Chhetri took 1-22.
