Nepal Edged Over Malaysia

In match 4 of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Asia Qualifiers  Nepal vs Malaysia, Nepal won the toss and elected to field. 
Malaysia got off to a shocking start with their skipper Winifred Duraisingam getting dismissed for a duck. Kabita Kunwar trapped Duraisingam leg before with the fifth delivery of the first over. In the second over, the agile Nepal skipper Rubina Chhetry ran out Wan Julia for one run. Two early wickets proved difficult for Malaysia to score runs till Yusrina Yaakop hit a boundary off Saraswati Kumari. Elisa Hunter and Yaakop took the score to 32 when Sabnam Rai clean bowled Yaakop for 12. Mas Elysa kept the scoreboard moving and put on 30 more runs with Hunter when Chhetry bowled Mas Elysa for 14. 
Ainna Hamizah Hashim unfortunately did not last long and got bowled by Sita Rana Magar for 2. Magar also ran out Mahirah Izzati Ismail for 2. When Sabnam Rai clean bowled Noor Zakaria, Malaysia’s hopes of crossing the 100-run mark faded. Hunter remained unconquered on 38 which came off 40 balls with four boundaries.
Chasing the target, Nepal lost the wicket of their consistent Indu Barma for 4 when she got caught by Ismail on the side of the bowling off Aisya Eleesa for 4. Sita Rana Magar and Chhetry put on a stubborn 48 runs partnership for the second wicket before Chhetry got run out for 20.
Sarita Magar and Sita Rana Magar then took the score to 68 by the 13th over.  Even though Sita Rana Magar got run out for 3, Kabita Kunwar hit a valuable 10 runs before she too got run out. Sarita Magar remained unbeaten on 15 and ensured that her team reach the target with 10 balls to spare.
