Bangladesh vs Nepal Match Prediction

BAN vs NEP Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

Match 37 of the 2024 T20 World Cup sees Bangladesh take on Nepal on Sunday evening at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown. Bangladesh are in second place in Group D but their progress to the Super Eights is not guaranteed as yet. Nepal can not make the top two but could still finish as high as third. Read on as we preview this match which gets underway at 19:30 local time in St Vincent.

Bangladesh have turned their fortunes around from mid-May when they were losing their bi-lateral series with USA 2-0. They won the final match of that series and have been impressive ever since. They will fancy their chances of recording another win in this game.

It was very nearly a Friday night to remember for Nepal as they were beaten by only one run by South Africa in Kingstown. They will see Bangladesh as another tough opposition but we expect Nepal to run them close in both innings.

This will be just the fifth T20I to take place at the Arnos Vale Ground, Kingstown, St Vincent and the last three have all been won by the team batting first. We predict that both captains will want to bat first in this match.

We saw spin bowlers enjoying bowling at the Arnos Vale Ground on Friday evening and we expect the slow bowlers to be on top again in this match. A par score is likely to be no higher than 125.

Bangladesh Team News & Playing 11

BAN Team News

With their place in the Super Eights still yet to be confirmed, this is not the game for Bangladesh to take lightly or to rest certain players. Left-arm pace bowler Shoriful Islam is not far from full fitness but we expect him to not be rushed back for this match.

BAN Key Players

  • Shakib Al Hasan- the 37 year old all-rounder took the Player of the Match award in the last game after he hit his 13th T20I half-century.
  • Towhid Hridoy- the in-form right-handed top order batter was a bit off colour against Netherlands in the last match but he will be looking to get straight back to useful contributions in this game.
  • Mustafizur Rahman- the experienced left-arm pace bowler got the crucial wicket of Netherlands’ skipper Scott Edwards and also conceded just 12 runs from his four overs in that game.
  • Rishad Hossain- the spinner dismissed big hitting batters in the last fixture and he will be used during late overs in the match forcing batters to attack him once again.

BAN Team Form

Bangladesh come into this match with three wins from their last four T20Is and their only defeat by a narrow margin of four runs.

Bangladesh Predicted Playing 11

Tanzid Hasan, Najmul Hossain Shanto (c), Litton Das (wk), Shakib Al Hasan, Towhid Hridoy, Mahmudullah, Jaker Ali, Rishad Hossain, Taskin Ahmed, Tanzim Hasan Sakib, Mustafizur Rahman

NEP Team News

After failing to get a visa to visit USA and missing that leg of this tournament, spinner Sandeep Lamichhane came into Nepal’s side on Friday evening. Although he went wicketless he conceded only 18 runs from four overs and we expect him in an unchanged XI for this game.

NEP Key Players

  • Aasif Sheikh- the right-hander looks like he could be in Nepal’s T20I side for a long time to come after he hit four fours and one six in the last match.
  • Anil Sah- the batting all-rounder is a clean-hitting player at the crease and he was the only batter for Nepal in the top six to hit a strike-rate of 100+ 
  • Kushal Bhurtel- the 27 year old leg-spinner will come into this match full of confidence after dismissing Aiden Markram, Heinrich Klaasen, Marco Jansen and Kagiso Rabada.
  • Dipendra Singh Airee- the 24 year old will be desperate to get the ball in hand again in this game after he got the key wickets of Quinton de Kock, Reeza Hendricks and David Miller.

Nepal have seen one game washed out and abandoned with the other two as defeats in T20 World Cup 2024

Who will win Bangladesh vs Nepal Match?

Nepal gave South Africa an incredibly close game in their last match and they will feel they have the spinners to cause Bangladesh problems again in this fixture. However, we think Bangladesh have much more depth in their team.
