Nepal VS Ireland – Live Streaming

Jul 13, 2015 | Kaushal Adhikari |

Nepal will play against host team Ireland on their third game of Group ‘A’ on ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers at Belfast. The match at the Civil Service Cricket Club in Sormont is going to be the first ever encounter between the two sides in any format of the game. Defending champions Ireland currently lead Group 'A' table.


Belfast has seen heavy rain on Saturday where the match against Nepal and Namibia was washed out and more rain is predicted for Monday with huge deluge. Doubts will remain that it will see a full 20-over game provided clouds don't clear out.

Nepal opened the tournament with an unconvincing six-wicket victory against USA where it to them 19.4 overs to chase down a lowly 122 and had their match against Namibia washed out after 7.4 overs were bowled. Nepal stay at the second spot in Group 'A' with three points from two matches.


The match will be an opportunity for Nepal to see where they stand and how their batsmen fare against an average Irish bowling attack and the bowlers handle a an aggressive set of batsmen. The bright spot for Nepal is how Ireland batsmen struggled against USA bowling in their 46-run win that was actually set up by bowlers.

Nepali batsmen must perform pretty well if they want to win the match while spin attack against two times title winner Ireland will be crucial for Nepal in their bowling department. Once again Nepali will by relying on Captain Paras Khadka, middle order batsmen Gyanendra Malla and Sharad Vesawkar.


Nepal might go with the same team that played against Namibia.


Probable XI for Nepal :- :- Anil Mandal, Sagar Pun, Gyanendra Malla, Paras Khadka (captain), Sharad Veswkar, Binod Bhandari(wicket keeper), Pradeep Airee, Bashant Regmi, Som Pal Kami, Shakti Gauchan, Jitendra Mukhiya
