    Nepal fails to clean up tails

    KATHMANDU, March 25 
    Nepal failed to clean up the tails of Namibia as the host recovered from 176-6 in tea to pile up 245-6 in the second day of the ICC InterContinental Cricket being held at Windhoek Cricket Ground.

    The first day was washed out due to heavy downpour at the Windhoek.

    At stumps, Namibian veteran captain with World Cup experience Dion Kortze was unbeaten at 90. As per the rules of the ICC, Nepal will bat on Day III as the match looks like heading for a draw, which is sufficient for Namibia to join other seven nations in the qualifying round. On Friday, Nepal bowled 104 overs.

    Debutante Amir Akhtar and Basanta Regmi bagged a couple of wickets along with captain Binod Das's brace. Amir was summoned from England to boot Nepal's bowling strength while Basanta was the hero of the recently concluded ICC U-19 World Cup in which his heroics by both bat and ball helped Nepal to win the Plate Championship beating New Zealand in the final.

    The cup is the only first class tournament on offer for the non-Test playing countries and only one among Nepal and Namibia can qualify.

    The winner will go forward to play in a group that includes Scotland, defending champions Ireland and United Arab Emirates. The other group comprizes Bermuda, Canada, Kenya and the Netherlands.
