Nepal’s captain will be Rohit Paudel, while the UAE will be led by Muhammad Waseem. Nepal’s batting prowess rests with Dipendra Singh Airee, whose all-around excellence will be pivotal. Openers Kushal Bhurtel and Aasif Sheikh will aim to provide a strong start, with support expected from Rohit Paudel, Kushal Malla, Gulshan Jha, and Sandeep Zora. Karan KC and Sompal Kami’s bowling spells will be key in the early overs.

The UAE’s batting strength lies in their captain Muhammad Waseem, alongside Alishan Sharafu and Asif Khan. Their middle order boasts solid players like Basil Hameed, Ayan Khan, and Ali Nasir.

Nepal has a slight edge in their head-to-head record against the UAE, having won 5 out of 9 T20I matches. However, the UAE remembers defeating Nepal by 68 runs in the ICC T-20 World Cup Qualifier A semi-finals in February 2022. Nepal will undoubtedly be looking to avenge that loss.
