Nepal cricket team will forever cherish their campaign in the T20 World Cup 2024 and will draw inspiration from it for future endeavours. It’s a fact that they will head back home without a victory but also with a surge in their fan following. Nepal didn’t have the best of start but the way they competed against South Africa and threatened Bangladesh with their killer instinct is simply commendable. And before heading back home, they also had an altercation with the opponent in their last Group Stage game, in Kingstown.

Nepal went all guns blazing after opting to bowl against Bangladesh on Sunday night. They got a wicket on the very first ball of the game and even chopped off the Bangla top four within the Powerplay. Despite bundling out the Bangla Tigers to a paltry 106, the youngest team of the tournament succumbed to a 21-run defeat.

During the run chase, Nepal captain Rohit Paudel had a heated argument with Bangladesh pacer Tanzim Hasan Shakib. It was only the third over of the Nepali innings when the two players rushed into each other furiously before other players and the match officials intervened and separated them.

Nepal were on course at 78 for 5 at one stage before losing their last five wickets for seven runs as a determined Bangladesh team used all its reservoir of experience after a disappointing batting show.

Bangladesh should have won the match when Nepal were reduced to 26 for 5 after seven overs courtesy of Tanzim but Kushal Malla (27) and world record holder Dipendra Singh Airee (25) added 52 runs to raise visions of a first big win for the country against a major Test playing nation.

But as it happens with ICC’s Associate Member nations, the batters with little exposure to facing quality bowling didn’t know what to do with an experienced player like Mustafizur.

Nepal skipper Paudel conceded that inexperience became their undoing.

“As a batting unit, we could have done better, especially the top-order batters. We could have batted tighter. Bangladesh bowled really well with the new ball and we were under pressure after that. They were asking us challenging questions,” a dejected Paudel said at the post-match presentation ceremony.

“Top-order batters could have done better and taken more responsibility. We need to step up, need to know where to score runs and how to assess conditions,” he added.
