Nepal is set to face off against the UAE in the final match of the ICC U-19 World Cup Asia Zone Qualifiers on Thursday. The winner of the match will be crowned the champion and earn a spot in the U-19 World Cup in Sri Lanka in 2024.

Both teams have remained undefeated in their opening four matches of the tournament, with the UAE currently sitting at the top and Nepal in second place due to net return rate.

Nepal is seeking redemption after suffering a one-run defeat to the UAE in 2019, which cost them the chance to participate in two World Cups. The morale of the Nepal team is high after delivering impressive performances in both batting and bowling in the current tournament.

Nepal has a strong batting lineup with Akash Tripathi, Vishal Vikram KC, captain Dev Khanal, and Arjun Kumal, who has been performing well in the tournament, among its top performers. The team also boasts all-rounders in Akash Chand and Milan Bohra.

Hemant Dhami and Akash Chand are the fast pacers for Nepal, while Subhash Bhandari and Dipesh Kandel form the spin pairing. The team has displayed excellent depth in both batting and bowling.

The match is set to take place at the Arden Garden Oval in Ajman at 10:45 Nepali time. Nepal is hopeful of a strong performance and a victory that will grant them a spot in the U-19 World Cup, which they have not participated in since 2016.
