Pakistan vs Nepal will meet in the opening match of the Asia Cup 2023. Babar Azam’s team is the clear favorite in this match. Nepal and Pakistan have never met in any international match. Although Nepal is more likely to be beaten, this tournament gives them a good chance to improve.
Pakistan announced their Playing XI one day before the match. The green jerseys are going to feature a lineup packed with bowling. Do not forget that Pakistan is also going to attack very deeply.
Unlike other teams, Pakistan is quite clear on what their XI will be. India have some injured players coming back and the team is still not quite sure who will feature in the first XI against Pakistan on September 2, which is their first game.
Sri Lanka, at the same time, is also battling Covid at their camp, as well as injuries to some of their great players, including Wanindu Hasaranga.
Coming to the Pakistan vs Nepal Match, the two Nepalese cricketers to watch out for are their captain Rohit Paudel and cricketer Sandeep Lamichhane. Paudel has scored 1,383 runs in ODIs since 2021, which is the second most runs after Babar Azam.
At the same time, Lamichhane has taken 88 wickets since 2021, the most of any bowler. Nepal should look to win the toss and opt to bowl first to give their bowlers more time to try and challenge their batsmen as well.
Nepal need to be careful at the start of their batting as Pakistan have three dangerous pacemakers Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah.
