The opening match of the 2023 Asia Cup will take place on August 30 at the Multan Cricket Stadium in Multan between Pakistan and Nepal. Pakistan enters the game full of confidence, looking to maintain their winning momentum after just finishing a brilliant series that saw them defeat Afghanistan. Nepal, meanwhile, has a good record as well, winning two of their past five games and entering the field with a notable competitive stride.
Nepal’s most recent locked horns with Ireland. Opting to field first, Ireland set the stage. Nepal gradually accelerated their scoring rate post the early wicket setback. Eventually, Nepal surged to a commendable total of 268 runs. Ireland, facing an arduous chase, encountered early setbacks but exhibited a resilient resurgence during the middle phase.
