Live Scores - Nepal vs Kenya - 2nd T20I

Current T20I Form Kenya and Nepal:

Nepal have beaten the hosts Kenya by 5 wickets in their previous match to take a lead of 1-0 in the 5 match T20I series.

Kenya batted first and they could only manage a modest total of 130 for 8 in 20 overs. Openers Collins Obuya and Alex Obanda lost their wickets early on in the innings. Irfan Karim at number 3 played a fine knock and scored 34 in 44 balls. The middle order batters couldn't really impose counter attack to the opposition and hence the run rate suffered. Lucas Oluoch hit a quick 31 off 13 balls to take the team's total past the 125 run mark to 130 for 8 in 20 overs. For Nepal, Sompal Kami picked up 3 wickets for just 22 runs during his spell.

During the chase, Nepal lost Pawan Sharraf early on after he scored 1 run in 6 balls. After his dismissal, Aasif Sheikh and Gyanendra Malla revived the innings and stitched a partnership of 45 runs for the 2nd wicket. After these two were dismissed, Dipendra Singh Airee took the responsibility of taking his team over the line.
