(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) Buoyed by two successive victories, Oman will take on fancied Nepal in its third match of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Premier League in Kuala Lumpur on Sunday.

Oman began its campaign in the six-nation tournament with a 74-run win over hosts Malaysia on Thursday and on Friday, the team beat Hong Kong by nine runs.

Against Hong Kong, Sultan Ahmed played a skipper's knock to help Oman reach 143 in 45.1 overs. Ajay Lalcheta (4-22) and Rakesh Kumar Rampura (3-25) then bowled Hong Kong out for 134 in 41.1 overs. Coached by Sri Lankan great Duleep Mendis, Oman faces its first real test against Nepal and would hope to continue its winning streak.

Oman is currently third in the points tale with four points and a net run-rate of 0.830, behind Nepal (1.061) and Afghanistan (1.101), which have the same points, but better net run-rate.

Hong Kong, UAE and Malaysia are yet to open their accounts.

Brief scores: Oman 143 in 45.1 overs (Sultan Ahmed 37, Amir Ali 32 n.o; Tanwir Afzal 3-28, Irfan Ahmed 3-17) beat Hong Kong 134 in 41.1 overs (Ankur Sharma 30, Haseeb Amjad 38; Ajay Lalcheta 4-22, Rajesh Kumar Ranpura 3-25); Man of the Match (MoM): Lalcheta (Oman).
