Nepal has joined Afghanistan and Ireland in qualifying for the World Twenty20 cricket tournament after scoring a last-ball victory over Hong Kong in the qualifying tournament in Abu Dhabi.

It's the first time Nepal has qualified for a global ICC event.

The UAE also qualified for the tournament in Bangladesh in March after beating the Netherlands.

Two more places are still up for grabs from the tournament.
