In their first match of the Asia Cup, India had to share points with Pakistan due to adverse weather conditions disrupting the match’s second half. Meanwhile, Nepal suffered a humongous defeat at the hands of Pakistan in the tournament opener. The winner in this contest will secure a coveted spot in the next round.
Nepal’s batting lineup consistently struggles to get runs when confronted with quality pace attacks, and overcoming this particular challenge is imperative for them to exert pressure on the Indian team in this crucial encounter. On the other hand, despite encountering some setbacks in their previous match, India possesses a resilient squad that can advance further in the tournament.
