Match Prediction

Nepal vs USA Prediction

Nepal, having lost their first match to Canada, might be low on confidence, especially playing at the USA’s home ground. The USA has shown impressive form recently, bolstered by their domestic T20 league, MLC, which has unearthed quality T20 players. This will be the first-ever head-to-head contest between Nepal and the United States, and we predict that the USA will come out on top.

Prediction: USA to win the warm-up match against Nepal.
