The Nepali national men's cricket team will face the title contenders India on Tuesday in the Asian Games Men's Cricket held in Hangzhou, China. In the first match of the group stage, Nepal started the tournament with a record 273 run win against Mongolia, and in the second match, Nepal defeated Maldives by 138 runs and confirmed the meeting with India in the quarterfinals.

Nepal's third run in the Asian Games Quarterfinals

This is not the first time that Nepal has fallen to the last 8 in Asian Games cricket. Since 2010, the Nepali men's cricket team has been able to enter the quarter finals of all three hybrids since cricket was included in the Asian Games.

In the year 2010, Nepal was defeated by Afghanistan in the quarterfinals of Asian Games cricket held in China, and then in 2014, Sri Lanka was defeated Nepal in the quarterfinals of  held in South Korea. This year, the Nepali team is in high spirits, having set many world records in t20 cricket.

On the other hand, India, who is going to participate in the Asian Games cricket for the first time, is competing directly from the quarter-finals by playing Nepal after succeeding in the top four of the Asian T20I ranking. This will be the first meeting between Nepal, which is currently ranked 16th in the ICC T20I ranking, and India, which is the top ranked team in the T20 format. Also, in the Asia Cup ODI format held in Sri Lanka just a few weeks ago, Nepal met India for the first time in the group stage. In that match Nepal was defeated by India by 10 wickets. This time, Nepal has a great chance to avenge the defeat against India in the Asian Games. 

India to field IPL stars in the Asian games

India has not sent its senior team to Asiad. Rather they sent junior team under the captaincy of Rituraj Gaikwad, including all the young players who made a splash in the IPL last season. India, which is going to make its appearance in Asian Games cricket for the first time, is confident of winning the gold medal, while the emerging in-form Nepali youth team is standing as a challenge for it.

Nepal vs India Match Preview

In any case, it will be a big mistake for Nepal to underestimate India, which has always shown a dominating game against Nepal. On Tuesday, Nepal will have to pay special attention to the batting opening, because against the Test nation, Nepal's opening order batsmen will soon return to the pavilion. As in the Asia Cup, Nepal's two opener batsmen, Kushal Bhurtel and Asif Shekh, could share up to 12-15 overs, and Nepal can present a big target against India. 

If they have to bowl first, Nepal need to be more careful because all the 11 players with India are adept at hitting big shots which we have already seen in last season's IPL. On behalf of Nepal, young leg spinner Sandeep Lamichhane and death over Yorker specialist Abhinash Bohora who have IPL experience will have to prove to be heroes. In the do-or-die game, whether India's challenge against Nepal will be heavy or Nepal will reach the semi-finals and secure the first medal by beating India, that will be decided by Tuesday's match.
