NEP vs UAE Team Previews


The Nepal top order batting will be in the hands of Kushal Bhurtel and their middle order will be manned by the likes of the skipper Rohit Paudel, Dipendra Singh Airee, Aasif Sheikh, and Kushal Malla. There are some useful all-rounders in the Nepal ranks such as the wicketkeeper-batters Aasif Sheikh and Binod Bhandari, Rohit Paudel, and Karan KC. The Nepal bowling attack will be manned by bowlers such as Abinash Bohara, Rohit Paudel, Pratis GC, Lalit Rajbanshi, and Sompat Kami.

The Nepal outfit is going into this game with 4 wins on the trot. They won all the Group stage games of the competition and will be keen to win the final as well. They played their last game against the UAE team on 23rd October. It was a game of the same competition. Nepal won this game by a margin of 5 wickets with as many as 4 balls to spare. This game was played at Mulpani. The UAE team batted first in the match and succeeded in raising a total of 164 runs for the loss of 7 wickets during their turn with the bat.

The Nepal team responded well with the bat and chased this target down with 5 wickets to spare in 19.2 overs. Dipendra Singh Airee was adjudged player of the match for his 40 runs from 15 balls. Two Nepal bowlers picked up 2 wickets each. These were Sompal Kami and Abinash Bohara. Kami conceded 33 runs in the process from 4 overs while Bohara gave away 28 runs from his 4 overs. During the earlier portion of the Nepal inning, it was their wicketkeeper-batsman Aasif Sheikh who was in good form. But the batters that got the team over the line were the skipper Rohit Paudel and Dipendra Singh Airee.

United Arab Emirates

Unlike Nepal, the UAE outfit is going into this game with a couple of losses in a row. The UAE team played their last game in the competition against Hong Kong in Mulpani. The Hong Kong team batted first and raised a score of 212 runs for the loss of 3 wickets from their quota of 20 overs. The United Arab Emirates team responded with 143 runs for the loss of 5 wickets from their quota of 20 overs. Hong Kong registered an easy win by a margin of 69 runs. Babar Hayat from Hong Kong was adjudged player of the match for his 60 from 20 balls.

The 3 wickets to fall from the Hong Kong innings were picked up by 3 different bowlers from UAE. Nilansh Keswani, Sanchit Sharma, and Akif Raja picked up a wicket apiece during the Hong Kong inning. Nilansh Keswani was the pick of the bowlers with an economic spell that resulted in just 13 runs from his 4 overs. He even bowled a maiden over during the match. All the other UAE bowlers went for a lot of runs. Akif Raja also did a reasonable job with the ball giving away 15 runs from 2 overs.

Several United Arab Emirates batters got a start during the chase and managed to score runs in the 30s. But none of them could go on and hit a big one. This was the prime reason for the UAE chase not succeeding. The target set by Hong Kong was tough enough. The UAE bowlers will have to be on their toes in this game as well. The Nepal team has an even better batting line-up and they can put the UAE bowling to the sword. Khalid Shah, Nilansh Keswani, Basil Hameed, and Alishan Sharafu did a fair job in this game against Hong Kong and will need to rise to the task again.
