Nepal U19 VS Ireland U19 clash in second Group ‘D’ game

Nepal are taking on
Ireland in their second Group ‘D’ match of the ICC U-19 World Cup on
Saturday in a match that could possible determine their fate in the
tournament.

Nepal are in a pole
position to enter the quarter-finals from the pool after stunning New Zealand
by 32 runs on Thursday. The Black Caps are playing India in their second
match on Saturday and if they go down in the game, Nepal could sail
into the quarters provided they beat Ireland.

 

Nepal play their last
game against giants India on February 1. If India lose to New Zealand and the
Irish lose on Saturday, Nepal will still need to wait until the group
matches are done.

 

Ireland are not
unknown opponents to Nepal having beaten them twice in the ICC U-19 World Cup
Qualifiers in October last year. It was the same tournament from where Nepal
earned the World Cup tickets but Irish still participated after Australia
withdrew from the tournament citing security reasons.

 

Sandeep Sunar and
Sunil Dhamala will have a vivid memory of sharing a record 170-run partnership
against Ireland in the group stage match of the Qualifiers which Nepal had won
by eight wickets.

 

However, the recent
success against the Irish team will not be what Nepali side will be counting
on. Ireland lost their practice matches to Afghanistan (by 126 runs) and Canada
(by four wickets) but they did extremely well against the mighty Indian side in
their tournament opener despite losing the game by 89 runs.

 

Ireland had restricted
India to 268 before replying with a modest 189. But Ireland are heading to the
Fatullah pitch which supports spinners, the strength for Nepal in the
tournament.

 

Nepal’s
biggest positive is how they have clicked against New Zealand making 238-7 in
50 overs. It was the highest score for Nepal in their U-19 World Cup history, a
confidence they will carry going into Friday’s game.
