Nepal will host Papua New Guinea for a 2-match ODI series, Lamichhane will lead the hosts

Papua New Guinea are all set to tour Nepal for a 2 match ODI series starting from March 25. Both the 50 over games will be played in Kirtipur Cricket Ground, Kirtipur. Both the teams recently locked horns in the ICC CWC League 2, where Nepal outclassed Papua New Guinea by 7 wickets in Dubai. Twin fifties from Aarif Sheikh and Kushal Bhurtel steered Nepal to chase down PNG’s modest target of 174. The clash between the two is all set to intensify. Papua New Guinea will be upbeat to avenge their loss while Nepal will look forward to hosting them at their home.

NEP vs PNG Dream 11 Top Picks

Assad Vala

The Papua New Guinea skipper will have to lead from the front in order to tackle the Nepal challenge. The flamboyant southpaw plays the role of an anchor in the top order and the team will heavily depend on his form as a batter in order to post huge totals. The captain also bowls right-arm off break and has so far bagged 32 wickets in 39 matches.

Chad Soper

The swashbuckling all-rounder will be key for Papua New Guinea especially in the middle overs as a batter. The 30-year-old has aggregated over 469 runs in 31 matches at an average over 20. Soper is a clinical seamer as well, who can pick crucial scalps alongside maintaining a decent economy. In 31 ODIs, the right-arm medium-fast bowler has 44 dismissals to his name.

Sandeep Lamichhane

The spin wizard from Nepal has been a sensation with the ball in the past few years. His experience in several major T20 leagues plus his mastery over leg-spin makes him the X-factor for Nepal. The Nepal skipper’s lethal googlies will definitely be the toughest hurdle for Papua New Guinea in the 2-match series.
