The 23rd match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 is scheduled to match Nepal and Sri Lanka. The match between Sri Lanka and Nepal is scheduled for Wednesday, June 12 at Central Broward Regional Park Stadium in Lauderhill City, Florida.

In the T20 World Cup, Wanindu Hasaranga is leading Sri Lanka for the first time. He hasn’t been able to successfully lead the side, though. In the ICC T20 World Cup 2024, Sri Lanka has now dropped two straight games.

For the first time, Nepal, captained by Rohit Paudel, competes in the T20 World Cup. In the opening match against the Netherlands, Nepal was bowled out for 106 as a result of a batting collapse. Afterwards, the Netherlands easily chased it down by six wickets.

 SL vs NEP: Top 5 Players to Watch Out For:

Kusal Mendis (SL):

New Sri Lanka Captain Kusal Mendis Vows To Conquer 'Personal Weakness' | Cricket News

Right-handed hitter  Kusal Mendis, who scored 223 runs in 8 innings, including two half-centuries, and a top score of 79, had an outstanding 2022 campaign for Sri Lanka. Mendis, who offers forceful starts in the opening six overs to keep bowlers from settling and to keep momentum, will be vital to Sri Lanka.

He is an essential player to monitor because of his ability to strike first and set the tone, which will be crucial to Sri Lanka’s success in the forthcoming games.

Matheesha Pathirana (SL):

Asia Cup 2023: Sri Lanka's Matheesha Pathirana happy with first Player Of The Match award against Bangladesh - India Today

Dilshan Madushanka and Matheesha Pathirana will lead Sri Lanka’s pace onslaught. Pathirana had an impressive IPL 2024 campaign, claiming 13 wickets in 6 matches, including a career-best 4 for 28 against the Mumbai Indians.

He has claimed 11 wickets at an economy of 9.56 runs per over in his six Twenty20 International matches, including 4 for 24. Pathirana is a lethal weapon who can effectively harass opposition batsmen and aid Sri Lanka in winning the title, despite his awkward gait.

Rohit Paudel (NEP):

NEP vs WI-A, 1st T20I: Rohit Paudel Notches Historic Century as Nepal Defeat West Indies-A By 4 Wickets - News18

Rohit Paudel is one of Nepal’s most trustworthy batters in the batting lineup. He is a youthful, gifted batter. He was in excellent form in Nepal’s recent home series against West Indies A, where he scored 265 runs in just 4 matches at an average of 132.50 and a strike rate of 177.85.

The 21-year-old will probably bat in the vital position of No. 3, and he will have a lot of pressure to lead this Nepali squad to victory.

 Dipendra Singh Airee (NEP):

Nepal's Dipendra Airee emulates Yuvraj Singh, becomes 3rd batter to hit 6 sixes in T20Is - India Today

In the T20 World Cup 2024, Dipendra Singh Airee might be Nepal’s most important asset. Even at such a young age, the 24-year-old is already in the record books. He is particularly strong in the middle and lower orders. He can be dangerous when he gets going and he can hit massive sixes.

At the Asian Games last year, Airee got a 9-ball fifty against Mongolia, setting a record for the fastest fifty in Twenty20 internationals. A month ago, in a Twenty20 international match against Qatar, Airee set a record by hitting six sixes in a single over during the ACC Men’s Premier Cup. In addition to his arsenal of powerful hits, he can also be a valuable offspinner.

Karan KC (NEP):

The quickest bowler in Nepal’s lineup, Karan is a true wicket-taker. In the series against West Indies A, he only took 3 wickets in 5 games, but his bowling is far superior. The 32-year-old bowler has bowling experience and is skilled at taking wickets.

Both on the powerplay and in the dying stages, he bowls hard overs. He is a dangerous bowler due to his ability to swing the ball quickly. He is capable of killing under the right circumstances. In addition to his rapid bowling, he can also hit in the lower order.
