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.

But Afif Hossain scored a 33-ball 39 with one four and a six before being run out and Mahidul Islam added a 20-ball 23 to help Bangladesh seal a scrappy win.

Chasing the revised target of 180 runs in 40 overs, the Bangladesh youths required 11 runs in the last over. From 91 for 1, India lost 5 for 40 in 10 overs as Dipendra wreaked havoc, with support from Pawan Sarraf and Shahab Alam, who picked up two wickets apiece.

Nepal had lost to Bangladesh in the first match played yesterday. Later, Airee partnered with opener Jitendra Singh Thakuri to contribute 49 runs to Nepal. Coming in at the number four position, Dipendra slammed six fours and two sixes in his knock.

In the match reduced to 40-over-a-side due to bad rain, Nepal posted a target of 181 runs losing all the wickets.

After reducing Nepal to 77/3 in the 28th over, Indian bowlers ran on to Nepal skipper Dipendra Singh, who made a fighting 88 off 101 balls. In the first match of the tournament, they had defeated hosts Malaysia t the Kinara Academy Oval, Kuala Lumpur.
