Winning the toss, Nepal opted to bat first. Half centuries from Nurdhoj Sen and Jagadish Chand took the score to 240 runs from 40 overs at Bayuemas, Malaysia.
Opener Nurdhoj Sen scored 51 runs while Jagadish Chand 53 runs piled up mammoth 240 for the loss of 9 wickets. Similarly, Aadil Khan (21), Rupesh Bastola (21), Dipendra Chand (20), Alfaz Mansuri (18), Aashif Seikh (15) and Akash Bista (6) contributed to Nepal’s score.
Singapore had a brisk start during the chase but a good-spell of bowling from Nepali bowlers in the middle overs stopped the flow of runs & thus wickets started to tumble. Nepal bowled out Singapre for 139 runs in 36.5 overs. V.Seshadri top scored with 46 runs while A.Goenka managed 38 runs. For Nepal, Akash Bista took 3-24 and Man of the match Jagadish Chand took 3-28.
In the first edition of ACC U-16 Elite Cup 2010 held in Kathmandu, Nepal lost to Singapore by 68 runs in the final. Meanwhile, Malaysia defeated Oman by 36 runs in a low scoring match of another semi-final match played at Kinrara. Malaysia batted first and collapsed for 78 runs in 31.4 overs.
