Biraj Ghimire , Cricket Himalaya
Nepal, after several years, is going to play one of the most crucial games, crossing this hurdle will open several opportunities. This game is similar to the game which was played in UAE against Hongkong in 2013, Nepal won the match and eventually qualified for the World T20 2014.
3 Ground have been used in this tournament, Affies Park, United Cricket Ground and Wanderers Cricket Ground.
Among all, Batsman have somehow enjoyed batting at Wanderers Cricket Ground.
The highest score of the tournament, 309, was scored in this same venue. The next match between Canada and UAE was also a high scoring in comparison to the average score of this tournament. Yesterday, Nepal chased 178 against Kenya in this venue. The ground has already hosted ODI games, T20Is games.
So, looking at the venue, Nepali batsman should somehow play sensible and mature cricket to overcome Canada. Meanwhile, Canadian batsman are in form, their top order is scoring runs. Looks like Canada will enjoy playing at this venue than any other Venue, huge task ahead for Nepal.
Can our batsman play better cricket tomorrow? We will get to know the answer tomorrow, the match begins at 13:15 NPT.
