NEP vs USA, ICC Cricket World Cup League 2
Date and Time: 11th June 2022, 9:00 PM IST
Venue: Prairie View Cricket Complex, Texas
The pitch at the Prairie View Cricket Complex is slightly on the slower side with the bowlers having a say in the outcome of the match. While the pacers should get the ball to swing around in the powerplay phase, the batters will look to bide their time in the middle and keep wickets in hand. The spinners should come into play in the middle overs with some turn available for them. Both teams will look to bat first upon winning the toss, with 250 being a decent total at the venue.
