(Updated) ACC U-19 Asia Cup: Nepal register historic victory against India

The India U-19 team, coached by Rahul Dravid, crashed to a stunning 19-run defeat to Nepal in the ongoing U-19 Asia Cup at Bayuemas Oval, Kuala Lumpur on Sunday. But Nepal captain returned to haunt India again, this time with the ball.

The scores: Nepal u-19 185 for eight in 50 overs (Dipendra Singh 88) bt India u-19 166 in 48.1 overs (Himanshu Rana 46, Dipendra Singh four for 39).

The early breakthrough, followed by wickets in quick succession in the succeeding overs, built confidence on the Nepali side to put on a fine bowling display. For Nepal, captain Dipendra Singh Airee was the all-round star as he picked four wickets -- Atharva Taide, Abhishek Sharma, Shiva Singh and Mandeep Singh -- after scoring 88 in 101 balls.

Put into bat by India, Nepali batsmen put up a fighting total of 185 runs at the loss of 8 wickets in the stipulated 50 overs.

Pawan Sarraf (2-24) and Shalab Alam (2-11) also chipped in with a couple of wickets to ensure India's middle and lower order felt the pressure of the chase. Apart from Rana, the top-scorer for India, Manjot Kalra made 35 from 69 balls.

Earlier in the first innings, Nepal had posted a 186-run target to India. Jitendra Singh, the opener who laboured to 36 off 95 deliveries, and Dipendra steadied the ship by putting on 49 for the third wicket, but once Jitendra was packed off by Abhishek Sharma, it was the skipper all the way. In reply, India were all out for 166 in 48.1 overs.

Nepal had been rocked in the morning after being sent in at the Bayeumas Oval, losing their first two wickets inside the 10th over with just 28 on the board.
