Nepal’s Rohit Paudel Sends a Massive Warning to Sri Lanka Ahead of Their T20 World Cup Clash

Nepal captain Rohit Paudel has expressed his confidence to beat Asian giants Sri Lanka in their next group match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

We have already seen a few surprises in this edition of the T20 World Cup and Rohit Paudel is determined that his Nepal team will be next. A team with nothing to lose should only think about winning. The Asian underdogs have been drawn into a group that includes two teams from their continent and the other two from Africa and Europe.

With people like South AfricaHaving the Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh in the same group is certainly a scary thing for Nepal. However, captain Rohit Paudel believes they can at least cause an upset with a win against the Sri Lankans. They are one of the few teams to have played just one match in the T20 World Cup, but their match tomorrow could make history.

Not because of the surprise, but because Paudel believes he can do good for the team.

What did Rohit Paudel say about Nepal’s chances against Sri Lanka?

Speaking to ESPNcricinfo on the eve of the match, Rohit Paudel expressed high hopes for his team. When asked about Nepal’s chances against Sri Lanka, the all-rounder batsman first highlighted the surprises that have occurred in this edition. Seeing ICC Associate Members beat top-class international teams is something that boosts the confidence of the Nepali team.

Rohit Paudel has seen it more as motivation for their match against Sri Lanka tomorrow at the Central Broward Regional Park in Florida. He has claimed that his team is in full swing with their preparations and that they have confidence in the team to beat the former T20 world champions.

Rohit Paudel is confident that the preparation and hard work over the last 12 months will help them prevail against Sri Lanka.

“At this World Cup, you can see that the Associate team is beating the Test countries. That is a motivation for all of us, especially with a view to tomorrow’s game.”

“As a team, we believe that we will win tomorrow. And given the way we have prepared over the last few months and the way we have played cricket over the last year and a half, I think the belief is still there in the team and we are looking forward to tomorrow’s game,” Paudel told ESPNcricinfo.

Paudel claims Sri Lanka will come under greater pressure

Sri Lanka would not want to be in such a situation but Rohit Paudel believes they will be under more pressure in the T20 World Cup when they face Nepal. The Sri Lankans have suffered two consecutive defeats against South Africa and Bangladesh and the match against the Nepali team is a do-or-die game.

“I think Team Sri Lanka is under more pressure than we are.”

Realistically, Nepal has a better chance than Sri Lanka of reaching the Super 8 round, but only if they beat South Africa and Bangladesh after beating the Sri Lankans.
