The match between Pakistan and Nepal on Wednesday, August 30, is scheduled to serve as the opening match of the Asia Cup 2023, and excitement is growing. As these sides get ready to play at Multan Cricket Stadium in Pakistan, the anticipation is considerable.

Pakistan and Nepal are in Group A with India for the Asia Cup in 2023. With one team’s adventure ending after the first round, it’s a high-stakes situation. Babar Azam, who represents Pakistan, and Rohit Paudel, who represents Nepal, are both capable of carrying the leadership mantle.

PAKISTAN SQUAD: Babar Azam (c), Abdullah Shafique, Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Salman Ali Agha, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Haris, Shadab Khan, Mohammad Nawaz, Usama Mir, Faheem Ashraf, Haris Rauf, Mohammad Wasim Jnr, Naseem Shah, Shaheen Afridi, Saud Shakeel, Tayyab Tahir (travelling reserve).

Fakhar Zaman, Imam-ul-Haq, Iftikhar Ahmed, Mohammad Rizwan, and, of course, captain Babar Azam make up Pakistan’s strong batting lineup. The bowlers to keep an eye on right now are Haris Rauf, Naseem Shah, and Shaheen Afridi, who are crucial components of Pakistan’s hopes.

Nepal enters the competition with its own group of important players. It will be crucial to have batsmen like Kushal Bhurtel, Bhim Sharki, Rohit Paudel, Arjun Saud, and Aasif Sheikh. Sandeep Lamichhane, Karan KC, Gulsan Jha, and Sompal Kami are expected to make an impact as part of the bowling assault.

The fact that Pakistan and Nepal have never met on a cricket pitch before heightens the interest. Pakistan, now ranked number one in the world in ODIs, are unquestionably at an advantage. Their confidence is only increased by the home field advantage, which makes Nepal’s challenge all the more intriguing.
