MAL vs NEP Dream11 | Nepal may have started the series as favourite or have won the first Twenty 20 but Malaysia were too good for a compelling game of cricket. What a game it was to start and set up the series.
It took a special effort from Nepal captain Paras Khadka to see off Malaysia who nobody gave a chance before the start of the game. The reliable Karan KC, Sandeep Lacmichhane and Basant Regmi were among others who put up notable contributions for Nepal.
Earlier, Malaysia made 128/9 batting first on a tricky surface. Opening batsman Virandeep Singh notched a spectacular fifty while captain Ahmed Faiz made a gritty 45. With the ball, Anwar Rahman was the pick of the Malaysian bowlers returning with 2/20 in his quota of 4 overs.
