After a convincing victory in the second warm up match, it is possible that Jagat Tamata will make few changes again in the squad.

  • Opener Problems still a mystery 
  • Gyanendra Malla could play after missing the second warm up

The opening partnership is yet to make impacts in the squad. Nepal played with two different set of openers in their both warm match. However, neither of them produced good result. Subash-Gyanedra partnership failed in the first warm up whereas, Subash-Anil shah partnership failed to make descent start. Therefore it is certain Tamata will come up with another set of pairs in the third match.
