IND vs NEP: Match number 5, it is India vs Nepal! India and Nepal are all set to lock horns against each other for the qualification decider match at Pallekele Cricket Stadium. Rain played the spoilsport during the much-hyped India vs Pakistan match and now, we will walk you through the IND vs NEP Weather Forecast And Pitch Report Of Pallekele Cricket Stadium.

As the World Cup draws nearer, teams are competing for limited game time. During the previous two T20 World Cups, India’s major players either missed out due to extended injuries or were often rested. And the Sri Lankan monsoon isn’t helpful in that regard. Now, IND vs NEP is also under threat of rain as rain is forecasted for the match day.

Due to personal issues, Indian fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah flew back to India from Sri Lanka and would not be eligible for selection in India’s second Group A match against Nepal at Pallekele. Bumrah might be replaced by Prasidh Krishna in the starting lineup for India.

The high-stakes contest between India and Pakistan ended in disappointment for the supporters of both countries as rain repeatedly interrupted the game until it was ultimately called off. Some supporters went so far as to criticize Asian Cricket Council (ACC) Chairman Jay Shah for picking Sri Lanka as the alternate venue despite forecasts calling for rain at this time.

Nepal won’t want to go home without facing off against the best players from India. This might be their greatest game ever, with millions of viewers, if the weather cooperates. Just two months prior, a Rohit Paudel-led Nepal squad played an IPL-heavy India A team in Colombo and was thoroughly defeated.

This World Cup is the least of Nepal’s concerns. They will have an eye on the next 14-team edition of 2027. And it is not every day they get to play against the big boys of international cricket at full strength.

The Pallekele International Cricket Stadium’s surface is clearly preferred by batsmen. Early in the game, the bowlers will have little to no assistance, therefore the hitters will attempt to dominate the play. However, given that it will be cloudy, things might shift around and fast bowlers could have a swing moment in the air.

But as the game progresses, the surface will slow down, allowing the spinners more room to operate. Thus, on this field, the captain who wins the toss may decide to bowl first. On this pitch, hitters that can rotate strike well will fare well.
