pakistan takes on nepal in exciting asia cup opener today

The Asia Cup 2023 is beginning today with a thrilling opening ceremony. Singers Aima Baig and Trishala Gurung will perform, followed by the much-anticipated match between Pakistan and Nepal at the Multan Cricket Stadium.

For today’s match, Pakistan has already chosen the players who will be in the team. The game is set to start at 02:30 pm.

This match is special because it marks the first time Nepal is participating in the Asia Cup and also the first time the city of Multan is hosting such a big tournament. This is also the first time Pakistan and Nepal are facing each other in this kind of competition.

The last time Pakistan played in Multan was in June last year and they did really well. They won against the West Indies. They have played 10 matches in Multan and won seven of them.

Before the match Pakistan’s captain, Babar Azam, expressed his excitement about playing in front of the passionate Multan crowd. He also congratulated Nepal for being a part of the Asia Cup and hoped their participation would help the sport grow in their country.

Pakistan comes into the Asia Cup with a lot of confidence. They recently became the number one team in One Day Internationals (ODIs) after defeating Afghanistan in Sri Lanka. They have been performing well across different formats and have a good winning record.

Babar Azam shared that the team is confident rather than feeling pressure about being at the top. The team has worked hard to reach this position and they are eager to perform well in the Asia Cup and upcoming World Cup. All the cricket fans are eagerly waiting for this match.

After today’s match, Pakistan will head to Sri Lanka to play against India in the second Group-A match on September 2. The tournament will continue with matches between other teams as well. The players are enthusiastic and ready to give their best for their country in the upcoming games.
