NEP vs SIN Dream11 : Asian region qualifiers wrap up in the most befitting of ways today as Singapore and Nepal vie it out for the lone spot today
We’ve had some riveting matches engross us in a riveting brand of cricket in the ICC T20 World Cup Asia Region Final and as we head to the culminating encounter today, there couldn’t have been a more befitting way to wrap up the showpiece tournament. As Singapore and Nepal step out for one last time at the Indian Association Ground, the two sides see themselves squaring off against each other for much more than the prestigious trophy.
With Singapore on five points and Nepal on 4, for the winner of this encounter, the prize is as momentous as it could get. The winner will not only end the tournament on top of the rankings but also find themselves make it to the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifiers, sealing the only place this tournament offered into the final qualification round for next year’s CWC.
And it’s this narrative which is bound to make today’s encounter a ravishing one as two of the best sides from the ACC program get ready to leave no stone unturned today. They’ve undoubtedly been the two best sides this tournament with Singapore losing no match till now to find themselves heading into this encounter sitting in the echelons.
With the two wins and the one truncated encounter from their three contests, the home side who played their first ever international encounter in the tournament have immersed in a flawless brand of cricket. They’ve gone onto score some humongous runs and imbed some equally perfect bowling performances, one they’ll be looking to emulate today.
Elsewhere, while Nepal suffered a shocker as they were defeated by Qatar in their opener, the side have ever since managed to overhaul their form. They went onto defeat Malaysia and Kuwait convincingly to reaffirm their claims as frontline runners for the big prize and will be looking to replicate those same showings today as well.
Probably the toughest match we have had to call, selecting a winner from this encounter is extremely difficult. Both the sides have been pinch perfect till now, hardly wavering in any department and with this the summit clash, expect them to be on top of their game once again.
As far as the winner is concerned, we are going to stick with Singapore to pull off the unprecedented and defeat Nepal today. There hasn’t been one area that has faltered for the side till now and with no apparent weaknesses present in the side, another win is likely today.

It will reward clean hitting but batsmen will need to take some time to settle down. The side winning the toss will want to bat first here with the spinners coming into effect in the second period.
