The second game of the tri-series sees hosts Singapore face fellow Asians, Nepal at the Indian Association Ground on Saturday. Singapore announced themselves by winning the ICC T20 World Cup Asian Regional Finals Qualifier against the likes of Nepal, Malaysia and Qatar. While Singapore looks to fine-tune themselves ahead of the marquee event, they face a stern test against the likes of Paras Khadka and Sandeep Lamichhane on a pitch that suits the Nepalese. The home side is the favourites for this game although Nepal is also capable of beating Singapore in what promises to be a very entertaining game.

Indian Association Ground, Singapore
Partly Cloudy conditions with fair chances of rain and temperature ranging around 30 degree Celsius expected during the game.
The pitch should offer some help to the spinners and pacers with the overcast conditions coming into play. 140-150 should be a competitive total at the ground although batting does become relatively easier as the game progresses
No major injury concerns reported.
Probable Playing XI:
Tim David is one of Singapore’s best batsmen and is a must-have for this game along with Paras Khadka, who scored some quick runs against Zimbabwe in the first game of this series. Sompal Kami and Janak Prakash are picked as the two allrounders in the side with Dipendra Airee also preferred on current form. All eyes will be on Sandeep Lamichhane, who is arguably one of the best leg-spinners in world cricket right now.
