Besides making the tournament proper, which is to be played in England in 2019, the Qualifiers put five teams - Scotland, Hong Kong, Papua New Guinea, UAE and Nepal - in a tussle. When Sandeep trapped Aizaz Khan he had his third wicket and Hong Kong were tottering on 110/8, having lost three wickets for four runs in 4.5 overs.

Mar 13, 2018-Young Rohit Kumar Paudel forged a match-winning partnership with Sompal Kami to hand Nepal victory over Hong Kong in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers to keep alive their hopes of earning the one-day global (ODI) status.

"Gutted, frustrated and extremely sorry for whatever happened in the ICC cricket World Cup qualifier", Stanikzai wrote on Twitter.

The victor of this tie will play against the victor between Hong Kong and Netherlands for seventh place and last spot left to be grasped for ODI status.

Elsewhere, an eye-catching maiden century by Rovman Powell steered the West Indies into the Super Six with a convincing 52-run victory over Ireland in their Group A match.

Aizaz and Ehsan Khan took two wickets each for Hong Kong.

Nepal are playing for pride as it had failed to qualify for super six after losing all its previous three encounters. Of course, Netherlands had won the ICC World Cricket League Championship, and had gained ODI status as a result.

Nizakat Khan top scored with 47 runs off 84 balls with four fours and a maximum.

The win sets up a third round showdown with Spaniard David Ferrer who defeated Tennys Sandgren of the U.S. 6-2, 7-6 (7/3). After losing to Hyeon Chung in the fourth round of the Australian Open, Djokovic took some time to get himself healthy.

Their total of 153 represented something of a recovery after a series of mini collapses left them 110/8 in a must-win game.

Lower order batsman Ehsan Khan scored 21 runs off 53 balls before Karan KC wrapped up the innings by cleaning up Ehsan Nawaz for 13 runs in 48.2 overs of their allotted 50 overs.

Earlier, Hong Kong's highest wicket taker, spinner Ehsan Khan, had his bowling action cleared by the ICC.

Lamichanne was pick of the Nepali bowler with 10-4-17-3.

Hong Kong needed to win to go through themselves and were hopeful of stealing the win but Nepal registered their first win in the tournament which spelled the end of the road for Hong Kong, the ICC reported.

This result means Monday's matches between the Netherlands and the West Indies, and Ireland and the United Arab Emirates will decide which two sides will join the two-time former world champions in the Super Six.

Zimbabwe will now take on defending champions Scotland on Monday and the victor of the match will take four points into the Super Six, while the loser will go through with two points.

The team finishing fourth in Group A will take on the bottom table team of other group and vice versa.
