Nepal takes United States of America (U.S.A) for T20 world cup qualifier match on Friday. After the warm up match between Nepal and Netherland where Netherland grabbed the series by 3-1 where the confidence of Nepalese players was totally lost on their first three match although by winning the last match against Netherland hope of Nepalese players raised. In second warm up match between Nepal and omen, the match was abandoned due to rain where Nepalese bowlers showed their excellent performance as they could do. Nepal is now going to hit the pitch with the United States of America (USA) as the qualifier match before advancing to the T-20 World Cup 2016 which is to begin from 9th of July.
Nepal is not in the good position as they lost their practice match against Netherland .The practice match hasn’t been able to lift their game up, especially their batting. Though skipper paras Khadka scored half century against the Netherland that wasn’t enough to convince that their bating was improved. They need a top order to play a big inning like as paras played against Netherland. Nepal will face some hostile pace from the U.S.A bowlers on Friday Nepal batsman should handle that.
Nepal has been a brilliant bowling side though Sompal Kami and Jitendra Mukhiya has combined exceptionally well with the new ball uprooting the opposition wickets. Nepal, in the past lacked the genuine pace bowlers that too has been fulfilled. Basanta Regmi and Shakti Gauchan has led the spin attack so well in the past few years and they are continuing their legendary as well in the present condition.
The U.S.A aren’t weak team though. They have also got the strong bating and bowling lineup but inconsistency in the batting, poor shot selection and imperfect team combination and game plans has let them down.
Both of the team will be looking to keep their hopes high for the upcoming tournament which will play a vital role in T20 world cup 2016
