Nepali cricket Fans in Bermuda during 2013 ICC World Cricket League Division Three.

Nepal were the pre-tournament favourites,[1] but they lost against USA and Uganda in their first two matches. On the other hand USA and Uganda made solid starts. Uganda remained unbeaten in their first four matches to comfortably secure one of the two available places in the 2014 World Cup Qualifier.

In the fifth round of the league, three teams remained in contention for the second qualifying spot,[2] USA having won 3 out of 4 and Bermuda & Nepal both having won 2 out of 4. USA could guarantee progress by defeating the hosts Bermuda, but for Nepal to proceed, they had to defeat Italy by a heavy margin and also rely on a Bermuda victory over the USA. In the end, exactly that happened and Nepal went through to the 2014 World Cup Qualifier over USA and Hosts Bermuda on net run rate.[3]
