Let alone playing against India, Nepal, an Associate Nation, have not played an ODI yet. He then took 4 for 39 with his right-arm medium pace as India imploded to 166 all out off the first delivery of the 49th over to slump to an unexpected defeat. Rana was the unquestioned aggressor, smacking seven fours and a six in his 38-ball 46 before becoming first batsman dismissed, bowled by Kamal Singh Airee. Apart from Rana, the top-scorer for India, Manjot Kalra made 35 from 69 balls. But the tournament favourite side was bundled out for 166 in 48.1 overs. Alam had Vivenanand Tiwary caught fittingly by Dipendra to complete a remarkable victory. But after the departure of Naim Bangladesh went on to lose quick wickets at regular intervals, forcing the required run-rate well over nine runs per over at one point of the game.

With Nepal skipper Dipendra Singh Airee doing the star turn, picking four wickets after scoring 88 in 101 balls, India was never in the game.
