Summary

Karan KC excelled with both bat and ball to set up a nervy four-wicket win over Netherlands on the penultimate ball of match five of the Oman pentangular T20I series on Monday, 7 October. The right-arm paceman first dismantled Netherlands line-up with brilliant returns of 4/17 from 3.3 overs, and later, followed his good work with a blazing 14-ball 31*.

Earlier, Nepal captain Paras Khadka opted to bowl at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground. His ace spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, who finished with 4/20,  struck on the first ball of his over, dismissing Netherlands opener Tobias Visee for just four. Max O’Dowd, who top-scored for his team with a measured 43 from 44, shared crucial stands of 47 and 41 with Tonny Staal (21 from 14) and Colin Ackermann (29 from 20) before Lamichhane sent him back in the fifteenth over.
