Sidelights – ICC World T20 – Bangladesh Vs Nepal

Both the teams have already won their first game of this qualifying round, but Bangladesh was more desperate to win the game because they are the host country of this tournament and despite being the best among all the teams, Bangladesh could hardly think of making a mistake hence every match they win should act as moral boosting for them for the next round of matches. Nepal on the other hand would have definitely wanted to stun the host country but then they had to bat really well and that is why they failed and Bangladesh cruised to win in the end. Here are some of the interesting sidelights of the game.
