Nepal is a rising cricketing nation and they have been playing a lot of cricket in recent months.

Numbers

  • Head to head in T20Is, Ireland leads 1-0.
  • Gary Wilson – 6 runs in 3 innings in this tournament.
  • Kevin O’Brien – 186 runs in 3 games in this tournament.
  • Karan KC – 8 wickets in 2 games in this tournament.

Ireland

The team is being captained by wicket-keeper batsman Gary Wilson and he has been batting too low down the order, not able to build an innings. Instead, we have Kevin O’Brien dominating at the top, now as a specialist batsman. He smashed 124 in the last game and he’s not someone you want to miss in your fantasy side. Another very experienced player in this team is all-rounder and opening batsman, Paul Stirling.

Stirling has plenty of experience in leagues across the world including the T10 league in Abu Dhabi, so he understands the crash boom bang style of cricket. So far, he has only 63 runs and no wickets in 3 games, but I’ll pick him anyway. With the ball, Mark Adair has been constantly among the wickets and here too, he has 5 wickets in 3 games, so I’ll pick him. In 2 games, George Dockrell got 5 runs and no wickets so if he plays, I’ll skip him.

Nepal

Wicket-keeper Binod Bhandari has 84 runs in 2 games and his 58* in the first game was only his second T20I fifty but he bats in the middle order and is getting better time at the crease than Wilson, so I’ll pick Bhandari. The team is being captained by Paras Khadka and there’s no way you can leave him out of your side as he bats and bowls both. He has 33 runs in 2 games this tournament but has been in good form prior, including 106* vs Singapore last month.

Another player with all-round abilities that you can add to your Nostragamus (sign-up with “READSCOOPS” for Rs.100 FREE) fantasy picks is Karan KC who has two consecutive 4-fers in this tournament, along with scores of 1* and 31*, so he’s always in the game. The x-factor player could be the 17-year old Rohit Paudel even though he hasn’t bowled and has scores of 5 and 5 so far this tournament.
