3 Times Nepal Fans Show Great Support For Their Cricket Team ft. T20 World Cup 2024

Nepal made their T20 World Cup return on June 4 in Dallas. The Asian team qualified for the mega event in 2014 but didn’t advance to the Super 10 round. After a 10-year wait, they made their highly anticipated comeback against the Netherlands.

Few cricket fans from other countries would have expected Nepalese supporters to dominate Dallas in their T20 World Cup 2024 opener. The stadium was filled with enthusiastic fans in Nepal jerseys. Unfortunately, Nepal narrowly lost the match.

In this listicle, we will highlight three occasions where Nepal fans showed tremendous support for their national cricket team.

#3 The Nepalese wave at the Grand Prairie Stadium, T20 World Cup 2024

The USA and West Indies are co-hosting the T20 World Cup for the first time in cricket history. Nepal’s team arrived in Dallas for their opening Group D match against the Netherlands. The pitch at Grand Prairie Stadium was challenging for batting, and Nepal scored 106 runs in their first innings.

Chasing a target of 107, the Netherlands found themselves at 80/4 in the 16th over. Max O’Dowd, well-set at the crease, attempted a big shot over long-off against Sompal Kami. The ball headed toward Nepal’s captain Rohit Paudel, who appeared poised to make an easy catch but ultimately dropped it. Max went on to score a half-century and led the Netherlands to victory.

Nepal enjoyed strong backing from the crowd at Grand Prairie Stadium, who seemed wholly behind them against the Men in Orange. Despite visible frustration when Rohit Paudel dropped Max’s catch, the fans applauded their team’s resilience as they defended a target of 107, pushing the game to the 19th over.

#2 Thousands of Nepal fans gather for a T20 World Cup 2024 screening in Kathmandu

The T20 World Cup match between Nepal and Netherlands was broadcast live in various locations across Nepal. A photo from a screening in Kathmandu went viral on social media, showing thousands of fans watching the game together.

Despite this being only Nepal’s second T20 World Cup appearance, the passion for cricket in the Asian nation is remarkable. It will be intriguing to observe if the team continues to receive such overwhelming support in their upcoming matches.

#1 A full house at the TU Cricket Ground

Earlier this year, Nepal hosted a tri-nation T20I series involving the Netherlands and Namibia. The fifth match of the series between Nepal and Netherlands took place at Kirtipur’s TU Cricket Ground, where the home team secured a five-wicket victory.

A video capturing thousands of fans cheering for the Nepal team during the match on March 2 gained widespread attention on the internet. Fortunately for the fans, Nepal emerged victorious against the Netherlands by five wickets, leaving them with smiles as they departed.
