Shami replaces Bumrah, India demands victory for Nepal for Super 4
Indian captain Rohit Sharma won the toss and was chosen to play against Nepal. It was the first international match between the two teams in the rain in Pallekele. When Rohit announced his decision to incorporate Nepal, the drizzle had returned. It also rained the day before the match, forcing the Nepalese players to train indoors.
Rain can be a problem. To be consistent during this match and throughout the tournament, the Asian Cricket Council (ACC) is considering moving the Super Four stage matches from Colombo, which has also received heavy rains in recent days.
India were without their best fast bowler, Jasprit Bumrah, who returned home to give birth to his first child. He will likely join the team for the Super Four round. Bumrah's absence has made way for Mohammed Shami, who will feature in his first ODI since March when India lost a rare home-and-away series to Australia. This will also be Shami's first white-ball match since the IPL final in May.
Nepal captain Rohit Paudel two days after turning 21 against the Indian Stars, has called it the "best day" for Nepalese cricket. They also made a change: Bhim Sharki replaced Aarif Sheikh. Sharki was also part of the Nepal team that traveled to the island for the Men's Emerging Asia Cup in July this year.
This match will be played on the same field. . , which had been used for India-Pakistan and was wiped out. After rain deprived the Indian players of a chance in the Pakistan team on Saturday, they will look to have a strong practice session against Nepal. India will qualify for the Super Four if they win on Monday, otherwise another flop will suffice.
