Nepal Announces World Cup Squad, Looks to Test Lineup

The match adds significance as Nepal recently announced their final 15-member squad for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup in the West Indies and America. Today’s match offers a valuable opportunity to field their intended World Cup playing XI, a luxury they lacked in the first three matches of the series. This makes the game a crucial test for facing tough competition like South Africa, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and the Netherlands in the World Cup.

Key Players and Challenges

Opener Kushal Bhurtel, a mainstay of the Nepali batting lineup, has struggled for form recently. The return of fellow opener Aasif Sheikh, who missed three earlier matches, could provide a boost. In the middle order, Nepal will count on Rohit Paudel, Dipendra Singh Airee, Kushal Malla, and Sundeep Jora to deliver. Captain Rohit, who scored 112 and 71 runs in the first two matches, is set to return after resting in the third game.

Spin bowlers Lalit Dhakal and Sagar Dhakal are likely inclusions, as West Indies batsmen have found spin bowling a challenge. Sompal Kami, Karan KC, and Abinash Bohara will probably fill out the fast bowling attack.

West Indies opener Johnson Charles poses a major threat after his 119-run performance in the third match. Getting him out cheaply will be vital for Nepal’s chances. Andre Fletcher is another key batter for the visitors. Nepali batsmen will need to negotiate the spin threat of Gudakesh Motie and Hayden Walsh Jr.
