IND vs NEP Fantasy Prediction: Pakistan vs India on Saturday, Check Fantasy team, Playing XIs, Injury Updates & Pitch Report for 5th match of Asia Cup 2023 

India and Nepal will play the fifth match of the Asia Cup 2023 at the Pallekele Cricket Stadium near Kandy on September 4. The two teams will be facing each other in the ODI format for the very first time.

India started their Asia Cup 2023 campaign against Pakistan but after around 48 overs of play, the match was eventually called off due to rain. The weather in Kandy was been rainy for the last few days, and the match against Nepal could also be washed out. 

Against Pakistan’s strong pace attack, India’s top order crumbled. They were reduced to 66/4 in 14.1 overs as none among Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill and Shreyas Iyer were able to deliver the goods. It was Ishan Kishan (82 off 81) and Hardik Pandya (87 off 90) who stabilised the ship for India. 

Nepal, who have never been able to qualify for the ODI World Cup, were thrashed by Pakistan in their opening game. Chasing 343 runs to win, they was able to score only 104 runs before being bowled out. The Rohit Paudel led side will now look to deliver a better performance against India. Some of their youngsters have been in decent form recently, but facing the Indian bowlers will be a huge task.
