i dont c how nepal is gonna face tough challenges likes of afghanistan, ireland and bangladesh as they are having good match practice and without good exposure only 10 day training is not enough, they should place much of match practice with likes of strong team ireland, afghanistan and only they can compete in bigger level... nyways best of luck nepal t20 who knws

Nepal looks strong on the paper and I think they are going to deliver some upsets to the stronger team. Good luck Nepal. We believe Nepal can make it to the second round.
