PAK vs NEP Dream11, Asia Cup: Check top Fantasy Picks, Probable Playing XIs, Pitch Report

Pakistan will take on Nepal in the first match of Aisa Cup 2023 on Wednesday (August 30). Four matches will be played in Pakistan, and nine matches will be played in Sri Lanka. Barring India, the rest of the five teams will play games in Pakistan. This will also be the first time Nepal will be participating in the Continental Cup.

Pakistan warmed for the Asia Cup by beating Afghanistan 3-0 in the ODI series. Big players like Shaheen Afridi, Babar Azam, Haris Rauf, and Shadab Khan stepped up and won some close matches. However, middle-order problems still persist for Pakistan. During Asia Cup, Babar Azam would be keen to solve that puzzle.

PAK vs NEP Dream11: Middle-order in focus as Pakistan aim to start Asia Cup with a win against Nepal

Like India, Pakistan also have a problem after number four. Agha Salman, Mohammad Nawaz, and Iftikhar Ahmed have been tried at that role, but as witnessed during the Afghanistan series none of the above-mentioned batters looked promising though, as Pakistan struggled against the quality spin bowling of Aghan bowlers. Saud Shakeel is added in the Asia Cup squad, and Pakistan would be hoping the right-hand batter translates his Test success in ODIs as well.

Bowling is looking as menacing as ever for Pakistan, with Shaheen, Rauf, Naseem, and Shadab amongst it. Nepal batters would have their task cut out to see off the new ball pair of Shaheen and Naseem.
