Kathmandu: The Nepali women cricket team has returned home on Monday after participating in the ACC Women’s T20 Championship. Nepal had reached the semifinal of this tournament held in Malaysia.

Nepal was eliminated from the Championship after the first semifinal match between Nepal and the UAE on June 25 was called off due to rainfall. With this, Nepal’s hope of being selected for the Asia Cup was dashed.

Nepal had restricted UAE to 81 runs in the semifinal match. Nepal, who had been posed a victory target of 82 runs by the UAE, did not get a chance for batting due to rain. Nepal had to exit in this way from the championship from this semi-final match itself. 

Nepal had defeated Bhutan, Kuwait and Bahrain in the group stage matches while conceding defeat at the hands of Hong Kong.
