Nepal vs UAE Prediction and Betting Tips | ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers 2023 

Here are our match prediction and betting tips for the forthcoming Nepal vs UAE fixture on July 02.

Nepal and UAE will lock horns in the 7th place playoff semifinals in Harare. Nepal had beaten UAE recently in Asian qualifiers and booked their place in Asia Cup 2023 where they will get a chance to play against India and Pakistan. Nepal have won just one game out of four in the group stage and victory came against the United States. 

Nepal are evolving in international cricket and they need more games to add credibility to their squad. They have played against UAE five times this year and they lost just once. They are unbeaten from their last four matches. It’s been a month now they beat UAE by 7 wickets. Winner of this game will face either Ireland or USA in the 7th place playoff final. 

Kushal Bhurtel, Rohit Paudel, Lalit Rajbanshi and Sandeep Lamichhane are the key players to watch out for in the Nepal side. If someone gets big, they can reach the 7th place playoff final. 

Meanwhile, the UAE have to rethink how their performance has gone down in the past year. They lost the place in the Asia Cup and now they are winless in the World Cup qualifier. The Arab nation last beat Nepal in March by 68 runs. Even in one game, UAE were bowled out for just 71 against Nepal. They need a collective effort to finish 7th in the tournament. 

UAE played four games in the group stage and failed to win any game. They remain winless in Zimbabwe. If they lose this game, they have to play the 9th place playoff game against the losing side from the game between USA and Ireland. Sanchit Sharma’s all round performance was the positive part from the previous game where he scored 44 and picked 3 wickets. 

UAE have class T20 players such as Muhammad Waseem, Basil Hameed, Karthik Meiyappan, and Sanchit Sharma who can contribute very well to surprise Nepal. 

Keeping the current squad and ongoing momentum in mind, we are favouring Nepal to continue their winning streak over UAE.
