IND vs NEP Preview: 

  • Virat Kohli boasts an impressive batting average of 57.32 in this particular format, making the 34-year-old right-hander a strong candidate for backing as India’s leading run-scorer in Monday’s matchup. Meanwhile, Jasprit Bumrah, renowned as one of the world’s premier bowlers, is anticipated to emerge as India’s primary wicket-taker when facing Nepal.
  • In Nepal’s camp, Aarif Sheikh showcased his ability by hitting the most boundaries in their recent contest against Pakistan. At 25 years old, he’s our top choice to be Nepal’s highest run-scorer against India. Sompal Kami has already claimed two wickets in the tournament and stands out as the preferred option for Nepal’s leading wicket-taker in this forthcoming match, thanks to his right-arm fast-medium bowling prowess.
  • Considering the relatively inexperienced batting lineup Nepal presents at this level, our recommendation is to place your confidence in Jasprit Bumrah to secure over 1.5 wickets in this game.

Weather & Pitch Report


Thunderstorms are expected to interrupt the game during the first innings of the match before calmer weather into the evening in Pallekele. 

Pitch Report:

In the previous Saturday’s game, the pitch favored the fast bowlers significantly more than the spinners, and we anticipate another match with a lively and pace-friendly wicket.

Toss Prediction: 

India won the toss and opted to bat first last Saturday. Despite some underwhelming performances from the top order, we anticipate their preference to bat first once more. Our prediction is that both teams will opt to bat first in the event of winning the toss.

IND vs NEP Team NEWS: 

IND Team News: 

Since India’s bowling attack didn’t get a chance to bowl against Pakistan, there won’t be any necessity to rest any of India’s bowlers in this match. Despite the top order’s disappointing performance against Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf on Saturday, we anticipate the same batting lineup to gain more valuable practice in this Asia Cup 2023 fixture.

NEP Team News: 

A significant portion of this tournament is poised to be a challenging learning experience for Nepal, and we anticipate Rohit Paudel to maintain an unchanged lineup for this match. The Nepal bowling unit is aiming to ramp up their effectiveness during the middle overs in this particular game.
