Nepali batsmen falter

KATHMANDU, March 26 - Nepal's hopes of victory were dashed at the Wanderers, Windhoek as its batting collapsed in the ICC InterContinental Cup playoff match against Namibia today.

Nepal was bowled out for140 runs in the first innings while replying to Namibia's first innings total of 272.

Paresh Lohani and Kaniska Chaugai gave Nepal a good start adding 46 runs before the Under-19 captain failed to KB Burger after making 14.

Paresh scored 34 in 74 balls before edging to wicket-keeper H Ludik off G Snyman.

Middle-order batsmen failed to show patience as Namibian bowlers capitalized on the home advantage to gain a stranglehold over Nepal.

Sharad Vesawkar (5), Shakti Gauchan (11), Gyanendra Malla (7), Mehboob Alam (13) and Binod Das (0) all failed against the hosts.

Earlier, captain Binod Das' heroics cleaned up the Namibian tail in just 12.2 overs of play after the hosts resumed the day's play at 245/6.

Binod took six wickets for 80 runs - his second best bowling after 6/29 against Hong Kong.

Das denied Deon Kotze his century as he could add just four runs to his overnight 90 before giving a catch to Gauchan.
