Players to watch out for

Rishad Hossain: The 21-year-old leg-spinner has picked up seven wickets in the three games - the most for his team - in the tournament so far and if the conditions are even remotely favourable, he will make the best use of it. His wickets have come at an economy rate of 7.25 and has struck once every 10.2 deliveries, which are excellent numbers.

Towhid Hridoy: The midde-order batter has already played a couple of useful cameos in the T20 World Cup so far and a lot would be expected of him, especially when it comes to finishing games off for his team. His 86 runs in three innings in the tournament have come at a strike-rate of 124.63 - the highest for anyone who has scored at least 25 runs for his team.

Kushal Bhurtel: If he cannot do it with the bat, he will get you with the ball. That's what Kushal Bhurtel showed in the game against South Africa. He finished with figures of 4/19 against South Africa and could once again come in handy against Bangladesh. The opening batter has hit just 20 runs in the tournament so far, and Nepal will hope that he comes good in this game his side look to sign off in style.

Key Battles

Shakib Al Hasan vs short balls

Half of Shakib Al Hasan's dismissals against pace in T20Is since 2023 have come when the bowlers have bowled short (10+m) of on good length (6-8m). Nepal have pacers like Karan KC, Sompal Kami and Abinash Bohara who could potentially exploit that.’s suggested Fantasy XI
