It has been a horrendous few days for Thailand as they have lost 3 matches on the trot and will look to make a comeback once they meet a much-fancied Nepal who have some exceptional players in their ranks. Thailand was thrashed in all 3 matches as they never found an answer in front of their superior opponents.
In the 7th match of the tournament, Nepal will look to beat a relatively inexperienced Thailand side. Nepal has some great players who have already made an impact in international cricket. Hence Thailand will have their work cut out especially after losing 3 matches on a trot.
Pitch Conditions and Toss
The pitch at the Terdthai Cricket Stadium in Bangkok has produced friendly wickets in the past. However, the bowlers have something on offer most of the time and it was evident during the match against Malaysia and Thailand where the latter was skittled out for a paltry score of 85. The team winning the toss would be tempted to bowl given the fact that teams batting 2nd here have come out victorious.
Probable Playing XI
Daniel Jacobs, Wanchana Uisuk, Henno Jordaan, Naveed Pathan, Robert Raina, Ziaul Hoque, Ismail Sardar, Phiriyapong Suanchuai(w), Nopphon Senamontree, Vichanath Singh(c), Mahsid Faheem
Paras Khadka, Binod Bhandari (wk), Gyanendra Malla (c), Aarif Sheikh, Karan KC, Dipendra Singh Airee, Sandeep Lamichhane, Sushan Bhari, Pawan Sarraf, Abinash Bohara, Kushal Malla

TL vs NEP Dream11
Dream XI Wicket-keepers
Binod Bhandari will be the wicket-keeper in our dream XI team. He is an impressive batsman and will definitely look to make an impact against an inexperienced Thailand side who has come under the pump in the last three matches so far.
Dream XI Batsmen
Gyanendra Malla and Dipendra Singh Airee will be the first two batsmen in our dream XI team. Malla has done a great job for Nepal over the years. He scored 46 and 38 in the last two matches and will be hoping to continue his good work.
On the other hand, Dipendra Singh Airee is another fantastic all-round player and will look to make an impact against Thailand tomorrow.
Daniel Jacobs and Henno Jordan will be the two other batsmen in the dream XI team. Both Jacobs and Jordan are an integral part of the Thailand side but hasn’t managed to get going in the tournament so far. Both will look to make an impact as Thailand tries to force their way into the tournament.
Dream XI All-rounders
Paras Khadka, Ziaul Haque and KC Karan will be three all-rounders in our dream XI team. Khadka will look to led from the front as he has done on most occasions. He is a fantastic all-round player and will look to make a substantial impact for Nepal especially after they lost the previous match.
Meanwhile, both Haque and KC Karan will look to make an impact for their respective teams. Ziaul Haque had a great season with the bat recently while KC Karan is another good all-round option in our dream XI team.
Dream XI Bowlers
Sandeep Lamichanne, Mahsheed Faheem and Abinash Bohora will be three bowlers in our dream XI team. Lamichanne is a global star and doesn’t need any introduction. He is a terrific leg-break bowler and will look to skittle out Thailand with his variations.
Meanwhile, Faheem and Bohara could also be important members of the dream XI team. They are impact players and a good bowling performance might just be around the corner.
Captain and Vice-captain
Gyanendra Malla will be the captain while Sandeep Lamichhane will be the vice-captain of the day.
