KATHMANDU, June 14: Nepal’s national cricket team has landed in the West Indies for their upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup match against South Africa.

The match is set to commence at 5:15 AM (Nepali time) on Saturday at Arnos Vale Stadium.

Nepal is scheduled to play its remaining two group-stage matches in the West Indies.

Spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, a key member of the national squad, has also joined the team after previously being denied visa by the US Embassy in Kathmandu, which prevented him from playing the matches in the USA.

In their opening match, Nepal faced a six-wicket loss against the Netherlands.

The second match against Sri Lanka was called off due to rain, resulting in both teams earning one point each.

Meanwhile, South Africa remains undefeated and has already secured a spot in the second round from Group D with three wins.

In addition to South Africa, India (Group A), Australia (Group B), Afghanistan (Group C), and the West Indies (Group C) have also advanced to the second round.
