Muscat Daily - - SPORTS -

Kathmandu, Nepal - The United States (US) were bowled out for 35 by Nepal on Wed­nes­day and joined Zim­babwe in mak­ing the low­est to­tal in an one-day in­ter­na­tional (ODI) match.

Nepal leg-spin­ner San­deep Lamich­hane was wrecker-in-chief, tak­ing six for 16 as the US were fin­ished off in 12 overs in the World Cup League Two match in Kir­tipur, Nepal. West Indies-born opener Xavier Mar­shall was the only US bats­man to get into dou­ble fig­ures, mak­ing 16. Spin­ner Sushan Bhari took the other four wick­ets for just five runs.

Nepal, play­ing their first in­ter­na­tional se­ries on home soil, reached the tar­get in just 5.2 overs af­ter los­ing both their open­ers in the sec­ond over. Timil Pa­tel hit a four, a six and a four of straight balls to com­plete the rout by eight wick­ets.

Zim­babwe were also bowled out for 35 by Sri Lanka in 2004 at Harare.

Nepal, US and Oman took part in the tri-se­ries that con­cluded on Wed­nes­day. Oman, coached by Sri Lankan great Duleep Mendis, fin­ished with an all-win record in the tri-se­ries.
