Match Preview: Vishal Warriors Vs Kantipur Gurkhas


The most awaited Wai Wai Everest Premier League is all set to bang at the home of nepali cricket, TU ground. Kantipur Gurkhas led by veteran Spinner Basanta Regmi and Vishal Warriors led by national skipper Paras Khadka will come up against each other in the first T20 match of the EPL. Both teams have a good squad and have plenty fresh cricketers, set to prove their talent at the honorary TU ground.

Vishal warriors seem brave; as led by national skipper Khadka. No doubt, the captaincy of the national skipper will be the key for Vishal Warriors. They do have first choice national wicketkeeper batsman Raju Rijal along with allrounder Sagar Pun who can contribute better with bat and the bowl. The slow left arm orthodox Susan Bhari has already made it to the national team and was seen bowling the English nets recently. Experiences of Paresh Lohani can boost up the team spirit while Irshad Ahmed, Ramnaresh Giri and the other players in the team will have plenty of their chances to set fire at the TU ground.

Kantipur Gurkhas are fearless; as led by “the crisis man” Basant Regmi. Basant can turn any tough matches into his pocket with his magical spin. Basant Regmi, no doubt will be the most crucial man for Kantipur Rhinos. It will be amazing to watch Kantipur Gurkhas under his captaincy. The “Boom! Boom!!” Pradeep Airee can engineer the lofted shots very well while Subash Khakurel can build the innings for Kantipur Gurkhas. Antim Thapa has not been seen in the national team since he played against Afghanistan U19 in 2009, this tournament can ignite him as well. Krishna Karki’s return will boost up the team and Aakash Bista may be seen a match winner. There’s a plenty of chances of other players to add fuel to the fire.
