    Its like a one man show going for Nepal. Nischal Pandey is the man of the moment in this tournament. He opens batting, he has hit consecutive half centuries……. his left arm spin causes too many problem to opponent batsman, has taken 14 wickets in 3 match. Most of all, he was unknown until the beginning of the tournament. Well done Nischal and the team.
    Singapore, could be the other team to watch, who are playing really good at the moment. They seem to be the only other team to match Nepal.

    A fear
    The senior team is lacking a genuine opener. The selection team and the CAN could see this prolific young boy, Nischal as the solution. It would be a disaster to throw such a budding talent to throw him to the deep end. They should let him mature before asking to open for the National team. He has just proven his skill at U-16 level , senior matches are completely different. Lets just hope he wont be picked for ACC Elite trophy or Div 4 just because of his performance at this level.
