UAE vs NEP : After bagging their first ever bilateral ODI series, a belligerent Nepal will move into the T20I series with their heads high. Defeating the hosts in their own backyard might have given them a ton of confidence which will definitely pave their way in the T20I series. The ODI series was a really competitive one where both teams showed real character on the field and with the action now shifting to the T20Is the same can be expected.
Talking about the ODI series, UAE was the first one to draw blood as they clinched the first ODI by 3 wickets after dismissing Nepal for a mere 113 and chasing the score in 32.1 overs. The second game was a do-or-die for Nepal and they dominated the contest ending up with a 145 runs win.
