Vikramjit Singh, dropped from the Dutch side during the World Cup, returned to the side today and played a key role in his team's eight wicket win over hosts Nepal as the first tri-series on CWC League 2 concluded today in Kirtipur.

Put into bat after Scott Edwards won the toss, most of the Nepal upper order struggled to get a start, with Kushal Bhurtel the sole bright spark, scoring 66 before being caught by Roelof van der Merwe off his own bowling.

A late order cameo by Karan KC - 26 from 27 balls - helped give the Nepal innings a little more respectibility as he and Aarif Sheikh took the score from 135-8 to 171 before Sheikh was out in the penultimate over. Karan KC fell in the next over and Nepal were all out for 172. Vivian Kingma and Aryan Dutt both took three wickets.

Max O'Dowd and Michael Levitt opened the innings with a 61 run partnership with Levitt scoring 39 from 34 balls before he was bowled by Dipendra Singh Airee.

O'Dowd was out three overs later having scored 28, before an unbroken stand of 102 between Vikramjit Singh and Sybrand Egelbrecht secured the eight wicket win for the visitors. Engelbrecht contributed 46, whilst Singh was the top scorer with 58.

The three sides involved in this series will now contest a T20I tri-series at the same venuel, beginning on Tuesday when Nepal take on Namibia. The Dutch play their first game in that tri-series on Wednesday against the hosts.

The next leg of World Cup League 2 gets underway in Dubai on Wednesday with UAE playing host to Scotland and Canada. UAE will play Scotland to start that leg, which will end on 9th March.
