The first ODI of the United Arab Emirates tour of Nepal, 2022 was played on 14th November 2022. The hosts won the toss and decided to field first. UAE’s opening duo got off to a great start. The middle order took the momentum forward and put on a total of 263 at the end of 50 overs.

In reply, sparing a couple of guys, Nepal’s batting order collapsed. They kept losing wickets at regular intervals. The inability to build a stable partnership cost them the game. They fell short of 84 runs at the end of the inning. Hence, the second game will be a must-win for Nepal, which is looking to stay alive in the series.
