Cricket Betting Tips & Match Predictions : Nepal Tri-Nation T20I Series 2021- Malaysia vs Nepal- Match 3
The 3rd match of the Nepal Tri-Nation T20I Series 2021 will be played between Malaysia and Nepal at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur, Nepal.
Current Form Malaysia:
Malaysia lost their first game against Netherlands by a margin of 15 runs. Losing the toss, they were invited to field first. Netherlands started at a moderate pace and collected 45 runs in the powerplay. Scott Edwards and Max O Dowd played very well and stitched a partnership of 49 runs for the 2nd wicket. They set the tone for a big total and after Edwards dismissal, Max O Dowd just went berserk as he carted the Malaysian bowlers to all parts without showing any mercy. He finished with 133 not out in 73 deliveries and Netherlands reached a respectable total of 191 for 2 in 20 overs.
Chasing 191, Malaysia had a very shaky start, losing 3 wickets with 20 runs on the board. Sharvin Muniandy and Virandeep Singh then steadied the ship and put on a 58 run stand for the 4th wicket. Virandeep Singh was the lone warrior as the middle order could not convert the starts they got. He made 87 off 53 deliveries and sparked a hope for victory in the Malaysian camp. However, after his dismissal in the 19th over, there was nothing left to hope for and Malaysia were restricted to 176 for 8 in 20 overs. They lost the match by 15 runs and Max O Dowd was named man of the match for his blitzkrieg knock of 133.
Current Form Nepal:
Nepal side are coming into this game on the back of a win against Netherlands in the first match of the tournament. They won the toss and fielded first. A great display of bowling from Sandip Lamichhane and Sompal Kami ensured that Nepal restricted Netherlands for a very low total of 136 for 4 in 20 overs. Unless for the cameo of 20 in 9 balls by Tony de Staal, none of the batters showed any promise to put on a big total on the board.
Nepal chased the total rather comfortably by 9 wickets with 30 balls to spare. Kushal Bhurtel was the top scorer with 62 runs to his name in 46 deliveries. Mohammad Aasif Sheikh also played very well for his 54 not out. Nepal completely dominated the game and very well earned the first win of the tournament.

Malaysia Squad: Ahmad Faiz Noor (Captain), Virandeep Singh, Syed Aziz Bin Syed Mubarak, Sharvin Muniandy, Anwar Arudin, Mohd Shafiq Sharif, Ainool Hafizs, Aminudin Ramly, Muhammad Anwar Rahman, Syazrul Ezat Idrus, Muhammad Wafiq, Pavandeep Singh, Fitri Sham, Khizar Hayat Durani and Dhivendran Mogan
