After a stunning results of last league match of Division Three, Nepal succeeded to progress to Division TWO, thus reserved a place in World Cup Qualifiers 2014. Nepal, the pre-tournament favourites was once in the danger of relegation when first two important matches were not in favour of Nepal. The last league match made Nepal to grab third success which highly improved net run rate. Bermuda's victory against USA not only saved themselves from being relegated but helped Nepal to over take USA in run rates. The attacking and ballistic performance of Nepal paved their way to World Cup Qualifiers as the Run Rate of USA was not as good as Nepal. 

The Final Points Table of the tournament is :
Top Two Progressed for World Cup Qualifers and Division 2

Reserving a place in World Cup Qualifers is the success of Nepali team. Their dream to participate in World Cup 2015 is just a step behind. The only thing they have to do is to bring Nepal on Top 2 of World Cup Qualifiers.

Hope Nepal will grab the title of Division Three on which they will fight against Uganda on Hamilton Cricket Ground, Uganda (5th May 2013). 

Exposure of Nepali Team with strong teams is a must so that they can realize their cons. Best of Luck to Nepal Cricket Team. May their Dream for playing World Cup 2015 get transformed in Reality !
