19.1FOURKami to Stanikzai, FOUR, Kami errs in length as he bowls it fullish, Stanikzai backs away and heaves it away to the cow-corner fence. The man from long on rushed towards the ball, got a finger tip to the ball but only ushered it to the fence122/7
18.4OUTMukhiya to Shenwari, out Caught by Khadka!! Mukhiya has his third scalp, Khadka pulls off an incredible catch. Nepal's catching has been sparkling tonight.
