Nepal 195 for 9 (Karan 42*, Nath 41, Pervez Three-41) beat Canada 194 for eight (Wijeratne 103*, Basant Three-34) by one wicket

At four:57 pm on a late Wednesday afternoon, Canada offspinner Nikhil Dutta was within the midst of flying from the bowling crease to the third man boundary, doing a Rashid Khan-style airplane celebration after getting Aarif Sheikh – Nepal’s final acknowledged batsman – out stumped. Behind the darkish clouds of thunder and lightning within the backdrop of Wanderers Sports activities Membership, the solar gave the impression to be fading on Nepal’s match.

With 51 runs wanted off 47 balls to win, No. 10 Karan KC – who was but to attain – was about to be joined for Nepal’s final stand by 16-year outdated Sandeep Lamichhane, who had earlier sustained a proper knee harm that performed a component in not bowling his full quota of overs.

What adopted was one of the miraculous endings to an ICC match match at any degree as Karan struck an unbeaten 42 off 31 balls, together with eight off the ultimate two balls, to seal one of many biggest victories in Nepal’s historical past. Canada, who began off the match with three straight wins, wanted only one extra over both Namibia or Nepal to clinch a spot on the World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe. As an alternative, they fell brief in probably the most gutwrenching circumstances conceivable.

The primary sniff of hope that Nepal had throughout the last wicket stand got here on the finish of the 44th over in opposition to Dillon Heyliger. The medium pacer despatched down a full supply that Karan drove by the road 30 yards over the brief straight boundary at long-off and into the Wanderers automotive park. The equation was decreased to 40 off final 36 balls, but it surely was a warning shot throughout the bows that Nepal was not about to lie down.

Certainly, Karan continued stirring the chase again to life. On the different finish, Lamichhane clung on by any means vital. A poke at Dutta two balls later produced an edge that flew between keeper and slip. When he acquired on strike to Cecil Pervez, Lamichhane confronted a bouncer barrage earlier than discovering a single that led to a different boundary from Karan to finish the 46th.

With three overs left, the darkness cleared and the solar started to shine as soon as extra on the pair within the center. Karan heaved Pervez over deep midwicket within the 48th after which clattered one other six again over Satsimranjit Dhindsa’s head to convey the equation right down to 13 off eight. Canada had saved a slip in to Lamichhane however unfold the sphere for Karan, a technique that proved expensive when he edged the following ball simply extensive of a diving Hamza Tariq behind the stumps for 4.

A single to finish the over left Karan on strike needing eight off six. Nepal’s squad, which had been scattered between the dugout and the boundary, nestling into superstitious positions, grew to become hoarse of their help.

Nepal bowlers Sandeep Lamichhane and Karan KC replicate on a historic win over Canada to succeed in the World Cup Qualifiers

As Canada’s most skilled demise bowling specialist, Pervez was tossed the ball for the ultimate over. He had put Canada on prime early within the innings knocking over Nepal’s prime three, together with a pair of well-directed brief balls to say vice-captain Gyanendra Malla for 9 and captain Paras Khadka for a golden duck on back-to-back deliveries within the seventh over, a intestine punch to Nepal’s prospects of chasing at 22 for two.

Now, Canada’s World Cup Qualifier destiny was within the palm of Pervez’ proper hand. He was flawless over the primary 4 deliveries, sending down a quartet of pinpoint yorkers, two of which barely missed leg stump with Karan backing away. With eight off two wanted, another yorker would successfully clinch the match for Canada because the momentum seesawed again their method. However Pervez acquired his size fractionally lengthy as Karan backed away to carve him 10 yards over the additional cowl rope.

With UAE having defeated Namibia 5 minutes earlier to place each groups at six factors, it meant a single would produce a tie to place each Canada and Nepal on seven factors and transfer each into the World Cup Qualifier. Nevertheless, a end result both method for Canada or Nepal would clinch a spot not only for the winner however for UAE as nicely.

Pervez acquired his size proper as soon as extra, however the line was a shade off as Karan missed a flick down the leg facet that was signalled a large to degree the scores. Operating in for a redo, Pervez floated a knee-high full toss that Karan whacked by midwicket to start a dash to the wicket from the Nepal squad and a simultaneous collapse to the bottom for Canada’s eleven on the sphere.

Whereas Lamichhane additionally dropped to his knees to offer reward up above, Karan was hoisted up and carried for an impromptu victory lap across the infield. Khadka, whose dismissal appeared to spell doom for Nepal’s probabilities of a profitable chase, was speechless as his team-mates carried on celebrating round him.

Karan was named Man of the Match, leaving Canada opener Srimantha Wijeratne’s first innings century a footnote within the historical past e book of this match. Wijeratne’s bat was wielded like a magic wand in opposition to Nepal’s bowling unit with deft deflections, uppercuts and eventually a scoop over the keeper to convey up three figures. He carried his bat for 103 off 152 balls in searing warmth after Canada had been despatched in. Specifically, he repelled Lamichhane throughout the legspinner’s incisive preliminary five-over spell that claimed 2 for 7.

After Lamichhane’s fifth over concluded, he left the sphere with a knee harm, and the issue continued to hassle him when he returned as he was smacked onerous by Tariq in his first over again into the assault for a pair of straight sixes. Three extra ineffective overs continued to offer Canada confidence heading into the ultimate part of the innings. Basant Regmi did nicely to maintain Canada pinned down at one finish with Three for 34 however when Wijeratne walked off on the halftime break having recorded the primary century of the match, it appeared destined to be a match-winning one.

However as ICC match referee Dev Govindjee mentioned later on the post-match presentation, “When you did not consider in miracles earlier than, you may begin after at the moment.”

Sam Northeast indicators for Hampshire | Cricket

Sam Northeast, who was given permission to talk to different counties final month by Kent, has joined Hampshire on a long-term contract. At the least eight golf equipment have been eager to signal him – a higher quantity, it’s believed, than have sought any English cricketer up to now. Northeast nearly moved to the Ageas Bowl three years in the past and, having been changed as Kent captain after signalling he wouldn’t signal a brand new contract, now believes he has to play within the first division to be able to be in competition for choice by England.

On the age of 28, Northeast is approaching his peak years. A batsman in England, in accordance with one other former Kent captain, Colin Cowdrey, doesn’t attain his prime till he’s 30. So Hampshire are buying a confirmed run-scorer, one who is not going to be absent by way of Check cricket or the IPL in the intervening time and a person whose household are shut mates with Liam Dawson, the Hampshire allrounder, and his household. Northeast is prone to bat at No. four, coming in after James Vince, England’s most-recent Check No. three.

Geographically, Northeast is healthier suited to becoming a member of Hampshire than Lancashire or Nottinghamshire, though Southampton is simply too far to commute from the house he purchased just lately in Canterbury. Essex, the county champions, have been eager to signal him as nicely, however he was not sure the place he would match into their batting order. Becoming a member of Sussex, the closest membership, and Jason Gillespie – who believed Northeast ought to have gone to Australia with the complete Check social gathering – would have meant remaining within the second division.

So for Rod Bransgrove, the Hampshire chairman, it is a fillip after the frustration of not being granted an Ashes Check in 2023. His plans to proceed growing the membership and the Ageas Bowl will proceed apace, additionally, with a proposed second resort, probably a boutique one, owing to the excessive demand on area on the Hilton. Hampshire must pay compensation to purchase Northeast out of the remaining 12 months of his contract, nevertheless it is not going to be the equal of his wage. An official announcement is predicted subsequent week.

Kent keep that they provided Northeast among the best contracts of their historical past to stick with them past this season. Though the captaincy is an annual appointment, they weren’t ready to permit him to stay as captain for this 12 months except he signed an extension. “We wished to plan for the long run and spoke to Sam for a number of months, however he didn’t wish to keep,” stated a spokesman.

Northeast, who grew up on the Kent coast at Deal and first performed for Kent when nonetheless in school, was advised final 12 months by Matt Walker, the top coach, that he was not their most well-liked alternative of captain. Their relationship broke down irretrievably – to the extent that Northeast stayed away from the St Lawrence floor and practised as an alternative at Beckenham. He has additionally been annoyed by the membership’s scarcity of finance – largely attributable to poor administration up to now – and, regardless of quite a lot of proficient younger gamers on the employees, not gaining promotion.

He sought a gathering final month with Simon Philip, the brand new chairman, however found that solely Jamie Clifford, the chief govt who was on the cusp of leaving to hitch MCC, and Graham Johnson, the chairman of the cricket committee who shouldn’t be standing for re-election to the principle committee on the annual assembly this spring, can be current. In that Kent have to begin the brand new season with out Sam Billings, their new captain, who might be tied up with the IPL, fairly other than not having Northeast’s runs to play with, this variation seems to make little sense. Billings will miss the primary 5 or 6 Championship matches of the summer time.

By way of the breakdown of communication and ignorance to the membership’s supporters and members, this sorry episode is uncannily paying homage to the departure of Mike Denness, essentially the most profitable captain in Kent’s historical past, and who had captained England, in 1976. What Kent would give now for the 2 trophies he received that season.
