As they face Scotland in the sixth Super Six match in the ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023, Zimbabwe will try to mount a great recovery.  The victor of this match would compete against Sri Lanka. Zimbabwe played well before its most recent match against Sri Lanka, when it suffered its first loss. Scotland easily trounced West Indies in the previous match, and they will be encouraged by that performance.  Before this highly anticipated match, let’s examine the current form, key players,  performances, and match prediction of  IRELAND VS NEPAL

Ireland defeated the USA by a score of 6 wickets in their previous playoff semifinal contest. After bowling first, they held the USA batsmen to a score of 196 runs, with Craig Young taking the most wickets with 3 total. With two wickets each, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, and Andy McBirne also put in strong performances. Andy McBrine, who had the most fantasy points in the last game, and Paul Stirling are most likely to start the innings. The batting team’s mainstay, Andy Balbirnie, will start at one down while Harry Tector and Lorcan Tucker will take care of the middle order. Balbirnie serves as the team’s captain and is a capable batsman.

Lorcan Tucker will be responsible for wicketkeeping, and Andy McBrine and Gareth Delany will bowl spin. The pace attack is being led by Craig Young and Barry McCarthy. Ireland batted coolly and methodically in the previous game, with star batsman Paul Stirling leading the way with 58 runs off 45 balls. They are counting on important players like Andy McBirne, Mark Adair, Barry McCarthy, and Craig Young to build on their effective bowling display against Nepal.

NEPAL Preview

In the seventh-place playoff semifinal, Nepal defeated UAE by three wickets to win. By choosing to bowl first, Nepal was able to retire the UAE hitters for just 181 runs. With three wickets each in the game, Karan KC and Sandeep Lamichhane demonstrated their superior bowling abilities. Looking ahead, the batting team’s mainstay, Gyanendra Malla, would likely bat at one down while Kushal Bhurtel and Arjun Saud are set to open the innings. The middle order will be handled by Bhim Sharki and Rohit Kumar Paudel. The team benefits from the batting prowess of Rohit Kumar Paudel, who is also the team captain. While Dipendra Singh-Airee and Sandeep Lamichhane handle the spin bowling, Arjun Saud is in charge of the wicket-keeping.

The player with the most fantasy points in this series is Dipendra Singh-Airee. The pace attack is led by Pratis-GC and KC Karan. Although Nepal lost 7 wickets during the chase in the previous game, they were still able to attain the goal. Their success was largely due to Dipendra Singh Airee’s calm 79 runs off 85 balls innings. Sandeep Lamichhane, Karan KC, and Dipendra Singh Airee are important Nepali players to keep an eye on.
