NEP Vs SL-U23 Dream11 Wicket-Keeper
Sri Lanka’s Vishwa Chaturanga is being brought into the docket of our Dream 11 side owing to two reasons. While the wicket-keeper is a steady bat, someone capable of piling on the runs, he’s going to be heavily involved behind the wickets as well with Nepal always vulnerable to collapsing with the bat.
NEP Vs SL-U23 Dream11 Batsmen
With 1,224 runs and 25 wickets in 50 T20s, Nepal’s Paras Khadka is the first player being inducted in our Dream 11 side in this docket of our side. While he’s going to be quintessential to the team’s fortunes with the bat, it’s his escalated role with the ball as well which makes him a must have player for this outing.
He’s going to be accompanied by Dhruv Singh Airee today while from the opposing side we have decided to venture in with Pathum Nissanka, a player who can hit the ball cleaning and cream it in the middle to amass a slew of runs at a quick rate.
NEP Vs SL-U23 Dream11 All-Rounders
We begin with 115 runs and 10 wickets man, Charith Asalanka from Sri Lanka over here with the player’s performances in the shortest format of the game alluding to his calibre and vibrant brand of cricket. He find company in the form of Kamindu Mendis, a player who has seen massive laurels being serenaded his way given his outings in the cricketing fraternity, a player we envisage as being one of the highest scorers from this match.
Elsewhere we have gone in with a reminiscent duo from Nepal as well, a partnership which is indomitable and daunting. We begin with KC Karan who has snagged 32 wickets in 24 encounters with Pawan Sarraf accompanying him for this prevelant tie.
NEP Vs SL-U23 Dream11 Bowling Order
We have decided to ingrain our side with an entire trio from Sri Lanka U23 given the lacklustre quality of Nepal with the bat. The side are always prone to shambolic collapses, a side which can lose its way under vicious and wicket to wicket line and length.
And someone who is capable of doing so from Sri Lanka is Asitha Fernando with the player having tallied up 12 wickets till now in T20s. The partnership of Kalana Perera and Sachindu Colombage are being brought in as well, bowlers capable of cramping batsmen for room with their rippers to induce false shots and soft dismals in them.
Captain And Vice-Captain
Mendis will be coming out to captain our side for the way while KC Karan is our vice-captain.
