Bangladesh vs Nepal: Tense Battle for Last Super 8 Spot in Group D

June 16, 2024
Bangladesh vs Nepal

The race for the final Super 8 spot in Group D of the T20 World Cup gets hotter as Nepal’s narrow loss to South Africa leaves Bangladesh and the Netherlands as contenders. Bangladesh, led by Najmul Hossain Shanto, takes on Nepal at the Arnos Vale Ground in St. Vincent.

Bangladesh Needs a Win, Netherlands Hope for an Upset

A victory of any margin secures Bangladesh’s place in the next round. However, the Netherlands still has a mathematical chance. They need Nepal to win and then beat Sri Lanka by a significant margin to pay Bangladesh on Net Run Rate (NRR). Bangladesh’s previous win against the Netherlands was a close call, with Shakib Al Hasan’s return to form being a major positive. Their batting, however, requires contributions from Litton Das, Shanto, and Mahmudullah. Spin sensation Rishad Hossain has been their X-factor, while the pace attack has seen collective efforts from Mustafizur Rahman, Taskin Ahmed, and Tanzim Hasan Sakib.

Nepal Aim to Spoil the Party

Nepal, despite the heartbreaking loss to South Africa, showcased its fighting spirit. Chasing a target of just 21 runs in the final overs, they fell short under pressure. Yet, they aim to finish the tournament on a high, potentially upsetting Bangladesh’s Super 8 dream. With limited opportunities due to a rain-abandoned match, Rohit Paudel, Aasif Sheikh, and Anil Sah have shown batting brilliance. While Kushal Bhurtel and Dipendra Singh Airee haven’t fired with the bat, their bowling contributions alongside Sandeep Lamichhane formed a potent spin attack in the last match. Nepal’s pace attack, featuring Sompal Kami, Karan KC, and Abinash Bohara, holds the key to derailing Bangladesh’s campaign.

Can Nepal Repeat Their Near Feat Against a Test Nation?

Nepal’s near victory against South Africa has set the stage for another potential upset. Will Rohit Paudel and his team be able to spoil Bangladesh’s Super 8 hopes? The cricketing world eagerly awaits the answer.
