Match 9 of the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 will be played between West Indies and Nepal at the Harare Sports Club.
West Indies began their campaign on a strong foot, securing a convincing 39-run win over the United States in their first match. Opting to bat first, the team had a poor start but recovered well thanks to notable performances from Johnson Charles, who scored 66 runs, and Shai Hope, who contributed 54 runs. Later in the innings, Jason Holder’s knock of 56 runs off 40 balls played a vital role in guiding West Indies to a competitive total of 297 runs.
Defending 298 runs, Kyle Mayers and Alzarri Joseph each took two wickets and restricted the United States to a score of 258/7. Gajanand Singh remained unbeaten on 101 runs off 109 deliveries, but was not able to take the USA over the line without much contribution from the other batters.
Nepal, on the other hand, lost to Zimbabwe in their opening game, but registered a six-wicket victory over the United States in their next match. Opting to bowl first, Karan KC single-handedly dismantled the USA’s batting lineup by claiming four wickets. USA were bundled out for a modest total of 207 runs in 49 overs, in reply to which
Bhim Sharki played a knock of 77 runs to help Nepal successfully chase down the target with seven overs to spare.
