Nepal face-off UAE one last time on their tour of the Middle East in a bid to clinch the second straight series after triumph in the One-Day Internationals. The Sunday decider in nicely set up after touring Nepal side made a comeback to win the second game on Friday (Feb. 1). Earlier, UAE had taken a 1-0 headstart in the three-match Twenty 20 series.
The second game of the series was a low-scoring affair. Batting first after winning the toss, UAE did not get going and were skittled for a partly 107 in 19.2 overs. The chase was not simple with Nepal losing early wickets but Dipendra Airee’s calm innings of unbeaten 47 took Nepal over the line to level the series 1-1.
