Cricket Betting Tips and Match Predictions: Nepal vs USA – ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 – 4th ODI
The 4th ODI of the ICC Men’s World Cup League 2 will take place between Nepal and USA at the Al Amerat Cricket Ground, Muscat, Oman.
Current Form USA:
USA lost their last match against Oman by 4 wickets.
Batting first, USA got off to a terrible start losing opener Steven Taylor and Monank Patel early on in the innings. Dominique Rikhi was the next one to follow as he was dismissed by Kaleemullah. Jaskaran Malhotra and Sushant Modani tried their best to resurrect the innings but lost their wickets at important times.
When USA looked down and out, Elmore Hutchinson and Karima Gore combined together and stitched a stand of 66 runs for the 9th wicket. This partnership gave a much needed boost to the USA innings and helped them reach a total of 178 before being bowled out.
Chasing 178, Oman could not get off to an ideal start and lost 3 wickets for just 57 runs. Zeeshan Maqsood and Mohammad Nadeem played with calm to proceed towards the target. Maqsood was dismissed by Kenjige at 31. After Maqsood’s departure, Suraj Kumar joined Nadeem at the crease and both batted brilliantly to get Oman closer to the target.
When Suraj Kumar was dismissed at 35, the situation got tense as Oman needed a run a ball with only 4 wickets in hand. However, Sandeep Goud and Naseem Khushi held their nerves and took Oman over the line with 2 balls to spare.
Current Form Nepal:
Nepal got beaten by Oman comprehensively in their last game.
Bowling first, Oman restricted Nepal for a modest total of 196. Nepal’s first match hero Kushal Bhurtel could not fire this time and was dismissed for a golden duck by Bilal Khan. Aasif Sheikh played a phenomenal innings of 90 in 112 balls but apart from him, no other Nepal batters posed any challenge to the opposition with the bat. For Oman, Bilal Khan picked up 4 wickets for 47 runs in his spell of 4 overs.
Chasing 196, the Oman opener Jatinder Singh went all guns blazing right from the word go. He smashed the bowlers to all parts of the ground and made 107 in just 62 balls before being dismissed by Kushal Malla. On the back of his monumental effort, Nepal chased the total in the 32nd over with 5 wickets in hand.
