PAK vs NEP ODI Score Live, Asia Cup 2023: Karan KC Snares Fakhar Zaman, PAK Lose First Wicket


The 2023 edition of the Asia Cup is set to begin on August 30, with Pakistan taking on Nepal in the season opener at Multan Cricket Stadium. Under the leadership of Babar Azam, Pakistan will be coming to play in the tournament as the number 1 ODI team after a 3-0 victory against Afghanistan. Nepal on the other hand will make their debut in the prestigious event as they found their spot after winning the 2023 Men’s Premier Cup. Keeping in mind, Pakistan’s strong squad and their reputation in ODI, Nepal is a novice and therefore Pakistan is the favourite team to win the match.

Talking about the Multan Cricket Stadium, the average first-inning total is 254 with the score is likely to be around 50-65 in the powerplay overs. Pakistan team is likely to start their first match with a big win, considering their strong ODI record and the experience gap between the two teams.
