Nepal is playing against Ireland in their first warm up match on ICC Twenty20 World Cup at Fatullah, Bangladesh today. Ireland has won the toss and has elected to field first.
Though this is a warm-up match but this is the first higher level encounter for Nepal in their cricketing history. Ireland is much more experienced side than Nepal and had beaten mighty West Indies during Ireland’s tour of West Indies.
Ireland is taken as the favorites for the next round from Group ‘B’ who are along with Netherlands, UAE and Zimbabwe. This encounter will be a great experience to the Nepali cricket team.
