A competitive track beckons at the Al Amerat Cricket Stadium with some help on offer for both the batters and bowlers. Although there should be ample help on offer for the pacers early on, runscoring is relatively easier against the new ball in the powerplay phase. As the match progresses, the spinners will come into play given the turn on offer. With the pitch likely to get slower as the match progresses, both teams may prefer to bat first upon winning the toss.
Today’s NEP vs CAN Dream11 match top picks
Asif Sheikh: Although Asif Sheikh has not fired for Nepal in the top order, he is one of the most explosive batters in the competition. Apart from his big-hitting abilities, Sheikh adds value with his wicketkeeping skills as well, making him a good addition to your NEP vs CAN Dream11 fantasy team.
Rayyan Pathan: Canada batter Rayyan Pathan has shown glimpses of his ability with the bat. However, he is due for a big one in this must-win game for the Canadians. In addition to his batting prowess, Pathan can also chip in with his handy medium pace, holding him in good stead ahead of the game.
Matthew Spoors: Matthew Spoors has been Canada's best batter in the tournament, even scoring a hundred. Although he didn't have the best of outings against Oman, Spoors remains Canada's go-to man with the bat and should be one to watch out for in this game.
Sandeep Lamichhane: Sandeep Lamichhane is one of the premier leg-spinners in the world, with his record speaking for itself. The leg-spinner has been bang on target in the tournament, picking up five wickets in two matches. With the conditions suiting spinners, Lamichhane should be a must-have in your NEP vs CAN Dream11 fantasy team.
