Nepali openers haven’t had a good time in Oman 5-Nation T20I Seris as they fail again and again to provide fine start for Nepal in batting.
It was the same story in Singapore Tri-nation T20I series.
Nepali openers fiasco to score double digit partnership in six matches among seven. Paras Khadka, Pawan Sarraf and Ishan Pandey were openers for this tour.
In absence of regular opener, Gyanendra Malla, Ishan Pandey was a new face in opening for Nepal whereas Paras Khadka on the other end. Except Paras, both other batsmen were completely flopped in this tour.
Ishan pandey played 4 matches in the tour where he scored just 33 runs with the strike rate of 66.00. All the openers failed to make fine partnership with Paras Khadka.
Opening batsmen have been a serious problem in Nepali cricket. Nepali fans are waiting for a perfect opening batsmen for Nepali cricket who can provide fine start to scoote the gamr. National coach and skipper would be searching better options for opening in upcoming national leagues like EPL and PPl.
