India will go head-to-head against Nepal in the first quarter-final of the Asian Games 2023 men’s cricket competition at the Zhejiang University of Technology Cricket Field in Hangzhou. The Indian cricket team will play their first match of the Asiad in the knockout stage by virtue of their higher seeding in the ICC Men’s T20I Rankings as of June 1, 2023, while Nepal have qualified through to the knockout stage after thrashing Mongolia and Maldives in the group stage.
At the Asian Games 2023, India will take part in their first match in the knockout stage, while Nepal have managed to win one toss out of two in the tournament during the group stage. Hence, there is a better chance of Nepal pulling one over India at toss time in the upcoming quarter-final match of the Asiad on October 3.
Both India and Nepal are going to compete against each other for the first time in T20I format in men’s cricket, which could make for an interesting battle on the field. But, despite the convincing wins for Nepal in the group stage against Mongolia and Maldives, they have an uphill task to defeat a high-quality Indian cricket team, who are aiming for a gold medal at the Asian Games 2023.
Average Powerplay Score and First Innings Score
The average first innings score at the Zhejiang University of Technology Cricket Field, Hangzhou is 147, because there have been a few astronomically high scores, coupled with a lot of low scores in the Asian Games 2023. With that, it’s very hard to determine a powerplay score at this venue, but if a decent batting side is playing their innings, then it could reach up to 78-86, thanks mainly to the short boundaries.
