Pakistan vs Nepal Live Score, Asia Cup 2023: Babar Azam Wins Toss and Chooses to Bat First

Date: August 30, 2023

Asia Cup 2023 Live Score: Today, Pakistan will go up against Nepal in the first match of the Asia Cup on their home ground Multan. However, due to the BCCI’s decision not to send its team across the border, a significant portion of the tournament will be held in Sri Lanka, making Pakistan technically the hosts.

Pakistan recently claimed the top spot in the ODI rankings after a successful sweep of the ODI series against Afghanistan in Sri Lanka. They are expected to comfortably defeat Nepal, who are making their debut in the Asia Cup. Nepal secured their spot in the Asia Cup by winning the ACC Men’s Premier Cup in Nepal in April-May. In the final of the qualifying tournament, Nepal defeated UAE by seven wickets out of the ten participating teams.

Having arrived in Pakistan a week earlier, it will be intriguing to observe their performance against a strong contender like Pakistan, who are considered one of the favorites to win the Asia Cup. Pakistan will have just two home games, with the rest taking place in Sri Lanka, including the highly anticipated matches against India. The match against Nepal provides an excellent opportunity for Pakistan’s players to refine their skills and strategies.

Pakistan Predicted XI: Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Agha Salman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf

Nepal Predicted XI: Kushal Bhurtel, Aasif Sheikh (wk), Bhim Sharki, Rohit Paudel (c), Kushal Malla, Dipendra Singh Airee, Gulsan Jha, Sompal Kami, Karan KC, Sandeep Lamichhane, Lalit Rajbanshi
