Nepal’s Final Squad Unveiled for T20I Tri-series

In a momentous cricket event set to unfold at the Mulpani Cricket Ground, Nepal, the Nepali cricket team is gearing up to face the United Arab Emirates (UAE) in the prestigious Nepal T20I Triangular Series. This thrilling series also features the spirited team from Hong Kong. As hosts, Nepal is making waves in the cricket world, and they recently revealed their impressive 18-man squad for this high-stakes competition.

The Kickoff Clash

The action kicks off with Nepal locking horns with the United Arab Emirates at the Mulpani Cricket Ground. This inaugural showdown promises to be a spectacle, setting the stage for a series filled with electrifying cricket. What’s more, this tri-series serves as an essential warm-up for all three participating teams, as they prepare for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Asia Qualifier. This event is a pivotal part of the qualification process for the 2024 Men’s World Cup, making it a must-watch tournament for cricket enthusiasts worldwide.

A Notable Absence

In a surprising turn of events, Nepal’s star bowler, Sandeep Lamichhane, opted out of the tri-series. Citing “difficult and challenging times” in his personal life, he expressed the need to “revitalize” himself. It’s worth noting that Lamichhane is currently facing legal proceedings related to a charge of assaulting a minor. The cricket fraternity eagerly awaits his return to national duty, expected when the regional final unfolds in Kathmandu on October 30.

Key Players’ Return

Lalit Rajbanshi, a crucial component of the Nepali cricket team, is back in action after recovering from an injury sustained during a practice match leading up to the 19th Asian Games cricket competition. Rajbanshi, renowned for his spin prowess, is set to lead Nepal’s spin attack alongside Mausam Dhakal, who has been granted an opportunity to showcase his skills, especially in Lamichhane’s absence. Dhakal’s only T20I appearance for Nepal came during a clash against the UAE ‘A’ team in the ACC Emerging Cup held this July.

Lokesh Bam, an exciting talent, has secured his spot in the squad for the first time since March last year. This promises fresh vigor and dynamism to Nepal’s cricket roster.

The Batting Brigade

Nepal’s batting department boasts a formidable lineup, including Wicketkeeper Aasif Sheikh, Kushal Bhurtel, Kushal Malla, and Dipendra Singh Airee. The team’s captain, Rohit Paudel, will be a driving force in this department, providing leadership and experience. Additionally, Binod Bhandari will serve as the backup wicketkeeper, ensuring that Nepal’s batting remains secure.

The Pace Attack

In the pace department, the team is spearheaded by Karan KC, who is set to deliver fierce fast bowling. He will be well-supported by Sompal Kami, Gulsan Jha, and Avinash Bohara. This pace quartet is all set to unleash their skills, making it a challenging experience for the opponents.

Debut Anticipation

Pratis GC, a promising talent, is yet to make his debut in the T20Is. His potential is eagerly awaited by fans and cricket enthusiasts as Nepal’s cricket journey continues to evolve.

Nepal’s Squad Overview
