Group D Heats Up

While initially seen as less competitive, Group D has surprised with close contests. South Africa, the group favorites, have won all three matches but faced challenges in each. Sri Lanka sits at the bottom with two losses, while Nepal and the Netherlands have one win and loss each, respectively. Bangladesh holds the second spot with two points.

Sri Lanka’s performance has been inconsistent. Despite a close call against Bangladesh, they lost their first two matches. Batting first against Bangladesh, they posted a decent 124/9 but fell short in defending the total.

Nepal Aims for Upset

Nepal, despite a loss against the Netherlands in their opening match, looks to bounce back. They need better contributions from the top and middle order, with captain Rohit Paudel being the lone scorer above 11 runs in their last match. The bowling attack also requires improvement for a strong showing.

This will be the first time Nepal competes against a Test nation like Sri Lanka in a World Cup. After a decade of World Cup appearances, Nepal seeks to establish itself on the global stage by claiming an upset victory.
