This article will discuss Nepal’s squad for Asia Cup 2023. Nepal has come quite strong this time. They have qualified for the tournament by beating some of the strongest teams in their group. Beating UAE in the final is no joke, but they pulled it off. The qualifier for the last spot of Asia Cup 2023 was held in Nepal this year. So it was something special for the Nepali cricket fans when their team won against so many good teams.
They build a strong case for themselves in international cricket, but they will get an even harder chance to prove themselves in the tournament. They will play against giants like India and Pakistan in the group stages.
Let’s see the team who is going to face the Titanic challenge.
Nepal team for Asia Cup 2023
Let’s see the team they are going forward with. Of course, they are going to go with the winning combination. Under the captaincy of Rohit, will they be able to show some resistance against giants like India and Pakistan?
|Dipendra Singh Airee||Batsman|
|Gulshan Jha,||Fast Bowler|
|Lalit Rajbanshi||Left-arm slow orthodox|
|Pratish GC||Fast bowler|
|Kishore Mahato||Wicket keeper|
|Arjun Saud||Fast bowler|
Nepal seems to be pretty good in the batting department. With Rohit as their captain, it is evident that he will be an important batsman for them. His stats do not look good, but he has performed well in the Premier Cup.
Kusal Malla, the top batsman for Nepal in the premier cup, will be a key player for them in the Asia Cup. He scored over 200 runs in 5 matches at an average of 80. But the best part is his strike rate. His explosive batting style will be the key for the team.
Sandeep was going to be their strike bowler. He picked up 13 wickets and was the second-highest wicket-taker in the tournament. Considering Babar and Virat’s weakness in leg spin, he would have been crucial to Nepal’s resistance against these South-East Asian cricketing giants. Unfortunately, he was left out due to certain police investigations
Sompal Kami’s ability to contain the rivals will be the determining factor in the middle overs.
Karan KC is also going to be a strike bowler for Nepal. He picked up ten wickets, second only to Sandeep’s best performance in the tournament.
Nepal will be against some of the strongest teams in the Asia Cup. That will make their performance even more impressive. After defeating UAE, one of Asia’s strongest associate ICC teams, they secured their spot. Let’s see how the team will do in the tournament.
