Nepal has faced fourth defeat in the ongoing 2nd Blind Cricket T20 World Cup held in Mumbai, India, on Saturday, February 4, 2017.
Nepal lost its fifth match against West Indies by 43 runs in the match held at Mumbai MIC Ground.
In the matches held in New Delhi, Nepal had already lost against Australia by 10 wickets, Bangladesh by 59 runs and Pakistan by 10 wickets. However, it had registered a six wickets win over South Africa.
As Nepal opted to field first after winning the toss, West Indies posted the target of 209 runs in allotted 20 overs with the fall of seven wickets. But in reply, Nepal failed to chase the target in 20 overs as it scored only 165 runs with the loss of three wickets to bear the fourth defeat.
Sunil Thapa Magar’s 70 runs off 51 balls went in vain after the defeat. But, Magar’s score became the third highest and fifth half-century made by a Nepali player in the international tournament. This was Magar’s first half-century.
West Indies opener Kevin Andrew Douglas was the highest scorer as he made nearly a century with 96 runs off 59 balls to give first win to his team. Leroy Orin Phillips contributed 23 runs off 13 balls and Caneel Wayney Graham 27 runs off 22 balls.
Magar, Ramesh Baniya, Bikram Bahadur Rana and Padam Badaila took a wicket each for Nepal.
