High on momentum, Nepal would hope to make some dents and even attempt to pull off an upset in the Asia Cup. So ahead of their high-octane encounter, let us look at five Nepal players, you must have in fantasy teams for the Asia Cup 2023.

The young Nepal captain, Rohit Paudel, has been a crucial asset in the Nepal batting line-up as the middle-order anchor. Paudel was named the captain after the veteran star Gyanendra Malla’s retirement and has so far fulfilled the leadership responsibilities well. Talking about his batting ability, the 22-year-old has 1564 runs in 53 matches and was the highest run-scorer in the ACC Men’s Premier Cup 2023. On the back of his current form, the Nepal captain will provide lots of points for your fantasy team.
