Team Form in Last Five Matches (most recent first)



  • Nepal are showing good form in the twenty-over format and have won six out of the nine matches they have played this year.
  • Zimbabwe have not played a T20I at this ground while Nepal recently played four T20Is here and secured wins in two of them.
  • Zimbabwe have a lot more experienced campaigners in their side and they look far more superior than Nepal on the batting front.

 Team NEWS: 

 ZIM Team News 

Zimbabwe have made quite a few changes to their squad from their recently concluded Bangladesh T20I tri-series. Their star batsman Hamilton Masakadza has signed-off from international cricket which means the team will be coming up with a new opening combination. Brian Chari and Craig Ervine could open the batting while Peter Moor is likely to be slotted in the middle order. Tendai Chatara will probably lead the Zimbabwean bowling attack.

 NEP Team News 
Nepal have retained most of the players that were part of the squad that toured Singapore in July for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Asia Region Final. Paras Khadka will be leading the team's 15-man squad and will probably open the batting alongside Kushal Malla. Binod Bhandari is the lone specialist wicketkeeper in the side while Sandeep Lamichhane and Lalit Rajbanshi are likely to form the team's spin attack for the series opener on Friday

 ZIM vs NEP Toss Prediction: 

With a few rain interruptions expected during the match, the DLS method could come into play and that should favor the side batting second. Moreover, since five of the last seven T20Is at this ground have been won by the chasing side, the team that wins the toss here is more likely to bat second

 ZIM vs NEP, 1st T20 Weather Report: 

There is a good chance of a delayed start as plenty of thundery showers have been forecast before the match and the weather is expected to clear only after 9PM. Temperature is likely to be around 28-29 degrees Celsius while humidity should be around 82% during the match.

 ZIM vs NEP, 1st T20 Pitch Condition: 

Scores of 180+ have been achieved on three occasions in the last five T20 internationals that have been played at the Indian Association Ground, indicating that pitch here has been pretty good for batting. Pacers are likely to get more assistance due to the moisture underneath the surface.

Key Players:

 ZIM Key Players: 

 Sean Williams: 
He is one of the world's best all-rounders in T20 cricket. The left-hander is among the leading run-getters for Zimbabwe in the format with 691 runs which includes four half-centuries as well as among the leading wicket-takers with 26 wickets in 34 matches.

 Craig Ervine: 
He is one of the most consistent performers with the bat in this team and has scored 461 runs in his 21 T20I innings. The left-handed batsman had struck a couple of fifties in the series against Ireland in July and he will be expected to make another 50+ score on Friday.

 Tendai Chatara: 
With 22 wickets in 18 matches, Tendai Chatara has been one of Zimbabwe's best bowlers in the 20-over format. The fast bowler notched up four wickets in the two games he played in Bangladesh. He will likely lead the team's bowling attack and will look to dent Nepal's innings early on.

 NEP Key Players: 

 Paras Khadka: 
Nepal's captain has scored the most runs for his side in the T20 format - 507 runs which includes three fifties. He had also chipped in with handy contributions in Singapore last time and he will be expected to take the team off to a strong start.

 Sandeep Lamichhane: 
He is likely to trouble the Zimbabwean batsmen the most in this series. The leg-spinner was the best bowler for Nepal at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Asia Region Final with seven wickets in four matches and he recently returned impressive figures of 2-17 in the CPL.

 Sompal Kami: 
The fast bowler is another key man in Nepal's bowling group. Sompal is one of the team's leading wicket-takers in the format with 23 wickets in 21 matches and he will look to replicate his 3-23 that he took against Malaysia at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Asia Region Final.
