Babar Azam-led Pakistan warmed up nicely in the run-up to the Asia Cup 2023. Pakistan defeated Afghanistan, 3-0 in the three-game ODI series held in Sri Lanka, a couple of days ago. The win would boost the team’s confidence as they start their Asia Cup 2023 campaign on Wednesday.
To add to their clean sweep, Pakistan also toppled Australia in the ICC Men’s ODI Team Ranking and took up the number 1 ODI spot with a significant increment in their points.
On the other side, Nepal will be taking part in the Asia Cup for the first time. It will be their maiden appearance in the continental tournament, following their successful grind in the qualifiers.
Quite evidently, Nepal will feel inferior against the big wig teams like India and Pakistan, however, their performance in the Asia Cup 2023 qualifiers would boost their morale to perform their best and not care about the results.
In game 1 of the Asia Cup 2023, Nepal will be against the menacing bowling lineup of Pakistan featuring the likes of Shaheen Shah Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf and Shabad Khan among others. It would be a real test of Nepal’s batters’ determination as they face the Pakistani pacers breathing fire in Multan Cricket Stadium.

As the general trend reflects, the Mulan Cricket Stadium would offer a surface of higher value for the batters. The surface is more or less dry, which poses a difficulty for the bowlers to execute their plans, thereby challenging their skill sets. The batters get the full value of their shots and often it’s a one-way traffic for the batters at this venue.
The average first innings total at this venue is 225 and batting first is considered a likely route to victory. Both skippers in the PAK vs NEP game would look to follow the trend and opt to bat first after winning the toss.
