KATHMANDU, Nov 21: Nepal was once again forced to share a point in the ongoing ICC Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifying Series Asia Region on Tuesday.

With just two points from similar number of the matches, Nepal finds itself in the fourth position in the table.

Currently Hong Kong leads the table with three points acquired from two matches and it will face China on the same day.
Meanwhile, home team Thailand defeated UAE by 10 wickets in the second match of the day and jumped to the second place in the points table. Thailand will play against Malaysia in its third match of the competition.
