IND vs NEP match preview


India, without a doubt, have the stronger of the two teams going into the IND vs NEP prediction. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are two of their most experienced batters and a lot would depend on them. Shubman Gill is one of their most promising young stars.

Shreyas Iyer is returning from injury and he would want to show some consistency. Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja are the two all-rounders that India have for the upcoming match.

Kuldeep Yadav has the potential to run through batting lineups and the focus will also be on them. Mohammed Shami is returning from a long break and it remains to be seen how he steps up.

India Possible 11: Rohit Sharma (C), Shubman Gill, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ishan Kishan, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami/Mohammed Siraj


Nepal had a forgettable outing against Pakistan and hence, they will have to pick themselves up ahead of the IND vs NEP prediction. Rohit Paudel’s men lost their first game by 238 after being bowled out for 104. After being put in to field first, Nepal made a brilliant start, dismissing Fakhar Zaman and Imam-ul-Haq early.

But then they failed to maintain the pressure on their opponent. Nepal will be looking for a more clinical performance against India, especially in the batting department.

Nepal Possible 11: Aarif Sheikh, Kushal Bhurtel, Kushal Malla, Rohit Paudel (C), Dipendra Singh Airee, Bhim Sharki, Aasif Sheikh (wk), Lalit Rajbanshi, Sandeep Lamichhane, Sompal Kami, Karan KC

Pitch report and expected weather conditions

The pitch at the Pallekele International Stadium is expected to be slow and low. Spinners are expected to get a lot of assistance from the surface. An overly high-scoring match doesn’t seem to be on the cards. Batters need to work hard to get runs.

There is a 80 to 90 percent chance of rain on the day of the match, which could lead to delays and interruptions. Temperatures will be around the 26-degree Celsius mark. Clouds will be there and wind of 15 km/h will blow across the ground in Pallekele.  

India vs Nepal Dream11 prediction

Our India vs Nepal Dream11 predictions for this match

  • Wicketkeeper(s): Ishan Kishan
  • Batter(s): Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Shubman Gill
  • All-rounder(s): Ravindra Jadeja, Hardik Pandya
  •  Bowler(s): Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav, Sompal Kami, Sandeep Lamichhane
  • Recommended captain: Shubman Gill
  • Recommended vice-captain: Jasprit Bumrah

We have picked Shubman Gill as the captain for the India vs Nepal Dream11 prediction. Although the batter has not been consistent with the bat in recent times, one can back him to come good against Nepal. The right-hander is among the leading run-scorers this year and he will want to gain some momentum.

Jasprit Bumrah has been picked as the vice-captain for the upcoming match. Bumrah recently bowled beautifully in the T20I series against Ireland. Against a Nepal batting that failed miserably against Pakistan, Bumrah should be able to make inroads.
