NEP vs UAE 3rd ODI Match Prediction & Betting Tips
Nepal will take on UAE at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur. The third ODI of the three-match series will get underway at 09:00 local time on Friday 18th November.
The hosts levelled the series with a narrow three wicket win in Kirtipur on Wednesday. After dismissing the UAE for 191 from 43.2 overs, Nepal got over the winning line with three wickets and 2.1 overs remaining. In front of their home fans, they have the opportunity to complete a series victory in this game.
After taking 50 overs to post 179-9 when chasing 264 to win in the opening game of the series, Nepal delivered a run-rate of 4.03 as they chased down their target on Wednesday. Lower order runs were crucial with the side recovering from 54-4 and Nepal will need more top order runs in this game.
Nepal’s bowling attack put in a massively improved performance in Wednesday’s game with all six of their bowlers picking up wickets. Sompal Kami and Lalit Rajbanshi both took three wickets and the entire bowling line-up will come into this match with renewed confidence.
Nepal got their first ODI victory on Wednesday after losing three games in a row.
After hitting 263-7 in the opening game of the series, UAE could only post a disappointing 191 in the second ODI on their way to defeat. Although their bowling attack nearly got them out of trouble, UAE need to re-find their form ahead of this match if they want to claim the series.
Opener Muhammad Waseem was the only UAE batter to hit a half-century in Wednesday’s game and he shared a first wicket partnership of 72 with keeper-batter Vriitya Aravind from 11.2 overs. Six of the top seven made double figure scores but more of these players need to post significant scores in this last game.
Only three of UAE’s bowlers picked up wickets in the second ODI with off-spinner Rohan Mustafa leading the way with figures of 3-24. He has now taken wickets in each of his last six international appearances and he will be a threat again in this match.
UAE have won only one (against Nepal on Monday) of their last four ODIs.
