Hosts Nepal have secured their place in Tuesday's T20I tri-series final after beating the Netherlands by 6 wickets today in Kirtipur.

Dutch captain Scott Edwards won the toss and chose to bat first, but there was to be no repeat of Thursday's record breaking run fest, as the Dutch batting line-up found runs hard to come by.

Seven batters were out for single digit scores with Max O'Dowd's 31 their top score. Pratis GC was the pick of the Nepali bowlers, taking 3-13 as the visitors were bowled out for 120.

After losing openers Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh early in their reply, Nepal set about scoring their runs quickly, with Rohit Paudel and Gulsan Jha adding 86 in 11 overs before Jha was dismissed for 38.

Paudel got the home team close to their target with 46 from 34 balls before he was out in the 15th over. The winning runs came the very next over to secure a six wicket win, with the net run rate situation securing Nepal's place in the final, no matter what happens in tomorrow's Netherlands v Namibia game.

Namibia will need to win that game by enough to lift their net run rate higher than that of the Dutch to qualify for that final, whilst any win or a narrow loss will be sufficient for the Dutch.
