Nepal's long-standing dream to play in the ICC U19 World Cup, 2018 has shattered after the team crashed out of the ICC U-19 qualifier for the Asian region underway in Singapore, following a humiliating 96- run defeat against Afghanistan today. 

For an entry into the world cup, Nepal had to defeat Afghanistan with a wide- margin score. 

As in today's match, Nepal, which hit the ground to chase the 196 runs target set by Afghanistan, was limited to mere 99 runs in 40.6 overs at the loss of all wickets.
