KUW vs NEP Dream11 : With the one wins each, Kuwait and Nepal look to make one final push for the top spot
We are in the business end of the ICC T20 World Cup Asia Region Final and with the teams so tightly stacked against each other, we are in for three ravishing closing encounters in the showpiece tournament. With the winner of the league going onto seal the one berth up for grasp from this tournament into the final qualification process for next year’s T20 World Cup, expect Kuwait and Nepal to leave no stone unturned when they take on each other today.
With the one win each for other side, both sides know that they are still in with a chance of topping the tournament ahead of the final day’s encounter on Sunday. While Nepal managed to brush past a harrowing surprise defeat to Qatar, Kuwait see themselves with the three points.
After initially suffering a massive defeat to Malaysia, the side saw their encounter against Singapore being truncated before eventually going onto defeat Kuwait yesterday. Batting first, they went onto register a massive 197-7, subsequently stalling Kuwait for 187 to see the 10 run win give them the first win of the tournament.
Nepal might have suffered a blunder of a defeat against Qatar but the way they came back against Malaysia reaffirmed their status as one of the firm favourites to top the league standings. And with them taking on Singapore on Sunday, the side will be looking to make it the summit clash by getting a win here.
We see Nepal winning this one easily. Kuwait’s bowling unit is a dismisal one, one Nepal’s exuberant batting line-up is going to enjoy its time out against. Expect this to be a big win for the side with them going onto get their second win of the league.
Pitch Conditions And Toss
With this being the third match slated to be played on this surface in a day’s time, expect the pitch to play sluggishly, slow, low and make for a tough one to come out and bat on. Chasing on this surface is going to be a treacherous task with the spinners coming into full affect in the second innings. Expect the side winning the toss looking to bat first on this wicket.
Probable Playing 11

Dream 11 Picks
Wicket-Keepers for KUW vs NEP Dream11
We are getting in the one wicket-keeper each from either side. After his good showing yesterday against Qatar, Kuwait’s Usman Waheed comes into our side while we are going in with Binod Bhandari despite him disappointing for two matches now. He’s bound to see himself get points as a wicket-keeper and could get the runs with the bat as well in this one.
Batsmen for KUW vs NEP Dream11
With Kuwait’s bowlers having leaked over 350 runs in the two encounters they have played in, it’s a Nepal heavy batting line-up which forms the composition of our side for this prevalent encounter. Gyanendra Malla, and opener Paras Khadka both come into our playing 11 for this encounter with this dauntless partnership manoeuvring past some staunch bowling units in recent times to get good runs.
From Kuwait we are picking up Meet Bhavsar after he pick in for the first time in the series in the previous encounter and saw himself get a hefty amount of runs.
All-Rounders for KUW vs NEP Dream11
Both KC Karan and Dhruv Singh Airee haven been roped into our Dream 11 side for this encounter with the pair being quissential performers for the side. It’s an indomitable partnership, one which plays a pivotal role in both the batting and bowling segment and if Nepal are to come out of this with a convincing win, expect these both to intertwine together to help build the foundation of success for their side.
Muhammad Kashif has by some distance been his side’s best and most consistent performer and he’s an indispensible selection for us in this match.
Bowling Order for KUW vs NEP Dream11
With this surface bound to heavily favour the slower bowlers, we had to get in Sandeep Lamichhane into our side. Given the high number of right handed bats in Kuwait’s playing 11, his legspin is going to leave the side in tatters on a wicket extremely conducive for the spinning stuff.
Meanwhile we can’t forget the way Nepal collapsed against Qatar and this sees us go in with two bowlers from Kuwait as well with both Hamoud Jandu and Shiraz Khan being picked up by us.
Captain And Vice-Captain
There were some heavy deliberations on who to pick out in this facet but we have gone ahead with Dhruv as our captain for this match while Sandeep is our vice-captain.
Dream 11 Advice
With teams partaking in the tournament in a hectic and congested schedule, one which sees several countries play on consecutive days, there is a likelihood of sides changing their playing 11’s for every match. Our side is picked based on the best performers for each side with us picking up players based on their pivotal role and importance to the team paired with their recent performances, pitch conditions and roles in the side paired with the toss and pitch and playing conditions.
Factors Considered While Crafting The Dream 11 Team
When we set out to make our Dream 11 side for this particular fixture, there were a slew of factors which were incorporated while selecting our players. While the condition of the pitch played a pertinent role in deciding to go ahead with a batting or bowling heavy playing 11, the toss played an equally vital role.
Apart from that the overall stature of the two teams partaking in the contest today, importance of the player to the side and the likelihood to score big or get a rich bagful of wickets were all encapsulated while taking into consideration the captain and vice-captaincy picks and overall composition of the side.
