It is the first game of the 3-match series, and hosts Nepal shall look to make a positive start against the United Arab Emirates. Nepal hasn't had a great run this year in ODI cricket, and they would look to make a turnaround here. UAE also struggled in the recent leg of the ICC Cricket World Cup League, and the side would like to start with a win.  

Nepal shall miss their regular skipper and most experienced player Sandeep Lamichhane, which hurts their balance. They have won only three games they have played this year, and there would be pressure on the players. The conditions here would be challenging for the United Arab Emirates. All this put together, we shall have a good contest. 

Nepal Preview

Rohit Paudel has been named the skipper of the team after regular skipper Sandeep Lamichhane was suspended by the board following a criminal charge against him. It is a massive blow for the side as far as their bowling attack goes. Paudel wouldn't want this to hurt the side's performance and shall be eying a solid show from the young players in the squad.  

Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh shall aim to set up a big opening wicket stand as UAE have a strong bowling attack. The side would also need a good show in the middle order from the experienced Gyanendra Malla, Aarif Sheikh and Harishankar Shah. Rohit Paudel, Sompal Kami, and Aarif Sheikh shall have to add quick runs in the lower middle order.  

The side would like good spells in the early overs from Sompal Kami and Kamal Singh Airee. Lamichhane's absence is a massive blow for the side, and they will like to see good spells from Lalit Rajbanshi and Basir Ahmed in this game. Harishankar Shah and Karan KC must do well in the supporting role for the side to win.

Nepal Predicted Playing XI:

Rohit Paudel (c), Aasif Sheikh (wk), Gyanendra Malla, Kushal Bhurtel, Aarif Sheikh, Sompal Kami, Karan KC, Harishankar Shah, Kamal Singh Airee, Lalit Rajbanshi, Basir Ahmed

United Arab Emirates Preview

Chundangapoyil Rizwan's side had a poor outing in the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2022. The side failed to qualify for the Super 12s, winning only once in their three games. The side would look to put that behind the poor show in the tournament and do well here. Rizwan would expect his experienced team to take an early lead in the series.  

Muhammad Waseem and Chirag Suri have done well with the bat in the last 12 months. They would look to set up a big opening wicket stand. Vriitya Aravind is the key batsman for the side, and he will look to add runs in the middle order with Basil Hameed and Zawar Farid. They will expect to see runs from the bats of Chundangapoyil Rizwan and Aryan Lakra in the lower middle order.  

Karthik Meiyappan and Kashif Daud shall look to make good use of the conditions with the new ball and grab early wickets. Basil Hameed has grown in confidence, and he will need to bowl good spells in the middle overs with Junaid Siddique. Zahoor Khan and Ahmed Raza add to the side's bowling options and make it strong. 

United Arab Emirates Predicted Playing XI:

Chundangapoyil Rizwan (c), Chirag Suri, Muhammad Waseem, Vriitya Aravind (wk), Basil Hameed, Kashif Daud, Zahoor Khan, Junaid Siddique, Ahmed Raza, Aryan Lakra, Karthik Meiyappan

Weather Conditions

The skies over Kirtipur would be clear on November 14, and it would be warm. The wicket is flat and batsmen would be able to play their strokes easily on this surface. The side that bats first in this game would like to put up more than 270 runs on the board. 

Venue Details

Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur, has a good batting surface where batsmen enjoy playing their strokes. Fast bowlers have struggled on this surface in the past, given the conditions. Spinners have enjoyed bowling here as the ball grips and turns sharply.

Toss: To Bat

The conditions are excellent for batting at the start of the game. The wicket here is known for slowing down in the second half when spinners get the ball to turn sharply. Hence, the side winning the toss would be happy to bat first in the game.

Nepal has a lot to worry about going into this game. They have a new captain and shall miss the services of their most dependable player. Their bowlers must do well, as UAE has a strong batting line-up. The United Arab Emirates has players who have played against the best sides in recent weeks. It will make them favorites to win this game.
