The event in Namibia which brought together six teams offered the Kenyan team coached by Thomas Odoyo a second chance to qualify for the World Cup after a dismal performance during the ICC World Cricket league which culminated last December.

The victor of today's match will join West Indies, Ireland, Nethelands and Papua New Guinea in Group A. The runner-up will join Group B comprising Zimbabwe, Scotland, Hong Kong and Afghanistan.

Each side will play the other teams in their group once with the top three from the groups progressing to the Super Six stage. And of those three matches, they won two after being nine wickets down.

The top team sides will advance to next year's Cricket World Cup in England. All points won in the groups will be carried over to the Super Six stage apart from those gained against the bottom two from each group.

Ajay Gupta considered a fugitive - Hawks
The Estina project was among those flagged by former public protector Thuli Madonsela in her State of Capture report in 2014. The Hawks officially named Ajay as a fugitive on Thursday‚ but his brothers Atul and Rajesh (Tony) are also on their radar.

Expressing satisfaction over Nepal's first-ever entry to World Cup cricket, Khadka said, "The fans back home are one of our biggest inspirations and we always thank them". With both nations advancing to the qualifying tournament, their next match will decide which pools they will be in.

Earlier on Wednesday, Khadka was dismissed for a golden duck during the match against Canada.

With one needed from the final ball, Karan managed a single to seal a memorable win.

The victory not only saw them reach the event to be held in Zimbabwe but also means the UAE have retained their ODI status. While they may not have made a Cricket World Cup appearance, they have turned out at the World Twenty20 on two occasions (2014, 2016), recording a victory over hosts Bangladesh in 2014.
