Led by Rohit Paudel, Nepal sits comfortably at the top of Group A. Their impressive wins against Malaysia and Qatar showcased the team’s firepower, notably with Dipendra Singh Airee’s explosive 64 off 21 balls and Aasif Sheikh’s steady 52 off 41 in the latter victory.

Hong Kong, currently second in Group A, will be eager to bounce back after a 55-run defeat to Saudi Arabia. Skipper Nizakat Khan’s 73 off 51 and Ehsan Khan’s three wickets weren’t enough to overcome Saudi Arabia’s dominant bowling performance.
