Man of the Match
Babar Azam
That is all we have from this one-sided affair as Pakistan start their campaign with a massive win. Nepal's first match in the Asia Cup did not go as planned and they will want to put a better performance in the next game. The action in the 2023 Asia Cup continues on Thursday 31st  August as Bangladesh take on Sri Lanka in the second Match for a Group B tie. The first ball will be bowled at 3 pm IST (9.30 am GMT) but as you know, you can join us for the build-up well in advance. Until then. goodbye and cheers!
Babar Azam, the captain of Pakistan is the Player of the Match for his remarkable innings of 151 runs in 131 deliveries. He says that when he went out to bat he played a few balls. Claims that the ball was not coming onto the bat properly and the pitch was a bit two-paced. Mentions that Mohammad Rizwan and he built the partnership after that and they decided to see how it goes. Adds that Rizwan sometimes gives him confidence and at times he does the same for him. Reckons that when Iftikhar Ahmed came out to bat, he changed the game so credits him for his hundred. Shares that when Iftikhar came out to the middle, he struggled a bit but he told him to play his natural game and after a couple of boundaries, he looked set as he smashed it around to finish the game. Tells that he is satisfied with the performance barring a couple of overs that were not up to the mark but the way the pacers started and the spinners finished the game was encouraging. Ends by saying that a win always gives confidence so their mindset is good and India versus Pakistan is always high-intensity so they want to do their best.
Time for the presentations...
Shadab Khan will have a word after his 4-wicket haul. He says that it is definitely quite hot but so was Sri Lanka, though there was a little bit of rain out and here it is just humid. Adds that they are professionals so they need to adjust. Mentions that Babar Azam is a world-class player but the way Iftikhar Ahmed is playing in the last few games is amazing. Claims that he is a power-hitter and takes his opportunity for the Pakistan team which makes him an asset. Informs that it is easy to do spin bowling when they have world-class bowlers taking wickets upfront. Ends by saying that the conditions will most likely be different in the next game but with the way they are playing, they have confidence in each other.
Rohit Paudel, the skipper of Nepal says that they started well. Adds that till the 40th over they managed to restrict their opposition to below 230-240. Gives credit to Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed saying that they took the game from them. Mentions that they could have done better with the bat. Claims that there were not many wicket-taking balls in the middle overs but credits the way Babar batted. Ends by saying that they learnt a few things from this game like they need to improve in death overs and the batting order needs to click.
Time for some interviews...
The Nepal batters, notably lacking the experience to counter the relentless Pakistani bowlers, encountered substantial difficulty in mounting any substantial resistance. Only three batters managed to surpass the 10-run mark, and their collective struggles culminated in a meagre total of 104 runs before being bowled out. The Pakistani bowlers' performance was instrumental in this comprehensive victory, showcasing their prowess and depth in the bowling department.
Pakistan's pace-oriented attack proved to be a formidable obstacle for Nepal's top-order batters, with Shaheen Afridi setting the tone by claiming 2 wickets in the opening over, including dismissing Nepal's captain for a first-ball duck. Subsequently, the dynamic pace trio of Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf continued to dismantle Nepal's batting lineup, collectively securing 5 crucial wickets. After the fast bowlers had made their impact, Shadab Khan the leg spin wizard of Pakistan took charge to wrap up Nepal's innings with 4 wickets in his 6.4 overs, effectively sealing the victory for his captain.
The Nepal batting lineup experienced a swift and challenging outing at the crease, ultimately being bundled out for a mere 104 runs in a mere 23.4 overs by the clinical Pakistani bowlers, who displayed exceptional skills with the swinging ball under the evening floodlights. This resounding victory marked Pakistan's first triumph in the Asia Cup 2023 as they sealed a massive 238-run win.

PAK vs NEP Match Detail:

Match: Pakistan vs Nepal

Date: 30 August 2023.

Time: 2:30 PM.

League: Asia Cup, 2023

Venue: Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan

PAK vs NEP Preview

Pakistan and Nepal will face off in the first match of the Asia Cup 2023 on Wednesday, August 30 at the Multan Cricket Stadium. Pakistan are the clear favorites in this match, as they are a much stronger team than Nepal.

Pakistan have a number of world-class players in their lineup, including Babar Azam, Imam-ul-Haq, Fakhar Zaman, and Shaheen Afridi. Nepal, on the other hand, are a relatively inexperienced team and do not have the same level of talent.

The Multan Cricket Stadium is a good batting wicket, so Pakistan will be looking to score heavily in the first innings. If they can do that, it will be very difficult for Nepal to chase down a big total.

However, Nepal are not to be underestimated. They have some talented players of their own, and they will be playing with a lot of passion and determination. If they can get a good start, they could make things difficult for Pakistan.

Overall, Pakistan are the favorites to win this match, but Nepal should not be ruled out. It should be a close and exciting contest.

Multan Cricket Stadium, Multan Pitch Report

The Multan Cricket Stadium is a good batting wicket, with a flat surface and good bounce. It is also a dry pitch, which means that the spinners can come into play later in the day.

The average first innings score at the Multan Cricket Stadium is 255, and the team winning the toss would look to bat first, considering the past records. Overall, a high-scoring game is expected to take place as the ball comes nicely onto the bat at this venue.

However, the pitch has also become more unpredictable in recent years, with some matches producing low-scoring games. This is due to the fact that the ground curators have been trying to make the pitch more even for both batsmen and bowlers.
