In a thrilling final over, South Africa wins by one run over Nepal


The equation altered when Nepal lost three wickets for one run in six balls, including two wickets to spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, and found themselves needing 18 runs from 18 balls to chase South Africa’s total of 116 runs.

Nepal lost to South Africa, a formidable cricketing nation, by just one run, thus missing out on their greatest-ever victory.

Nepal needed one run to match South Africa’s meager total of 115-7 and force a Super Over, and two runs from the final ball of the game to win. However, in an exciting encounter, South Africa prevailed after teenaged Ghulsan Jha was run out at the non-striker’s end while trying to score a single off the last ball.

The players from Nepal were devastated. When Nepal required 22 runs from the final 24 balls, they appeared to be on their way to their first victory against an ICC full-member country in twelve attempts.

The equation altered when they lost three wickets for one run in less than six deliveries, including two wickets to spinner Tabraiz Shamsi, when they needed to score 18 runs from 18 balls.

Ottneil Baartman bowled the opening two balls of the final over, but Gulshan was unable to make a run. Then, needing four runs from three balls, he blasted a four through the off side.

Nepal required two runs from two balls after Gulshan ran two with Sompal Kami.

Gulshan was run out on the following ball to conclude the match, since the fifth ball was a dot ball, meaning no runs were scored.

Rohit Paudel, the captain of Nepal, remarked, “We were so close and yet so far.”

“I believe that we performed effectively under pressure and that our fighting style was excellent. We will be victorious the following time if we can play elite teams more frequently.”
