In the match held earlier today at the Bayuemas Oval, a cricket stadium at Pandamaran, Klang, Malaysia, Nepal registered its first ever victory over India in any category of the sport of cricket, by beating its U-19 team by 19 runs.

India got off the good start with captain Himanshu Rana (46) stitching a 65-run opening stand with Manjot Kalra (35).

The 17-year-old Nepalese skipper ploughed a lone furrow with the bat in making a stroke-filled 88 which was the cornerstone of his team's modest 185 for 8 in 50 overs on being put in to bat by Himanshu Rana. India on the other hand suffer their first defeat of the tournament.
