Nepal vs Sri Lanka 23rd Match ICC T20 World Cup 2024

Match 23 of the 2024 T20 World Cup brings Sri Lanka and Nepal face-to-face at the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill on Tuesday evening. 

Both teams are eager for a win, with Sri Lanka having lost their first two games and Nepal also suffering a defeat in their only match so far. The game kicks off on June 12th at 7:30 PM local time.

Sri Lanka has struggled with their batting in the tournament, and their bowlers haven’t been able to turn things around either. Despite this, they have a strong bowling lineup, and if their batters step up, they stand a good chance of securing a victory.

Nepal, although defeated by the Netherlands in Dallas, showed resilience with the ball in the second innings. However, they’ll face a formidable Sri Lankan bowling attack in this match, and scoring runs against such a high-quality unit will be a significant challenge for them.

This is a good batting pitch as seen in the last T20I here when West Indies chased down a target of 166 with only two wickets down and with 12 balls remaining. There could be some spin but overall there will be good carry for the pace bowlers throughout.
