Nepal’s middle order batsman Dipendra Singh Airee is declared fit to play the Nepal’s opener match of ICC World T20 Qualifiers schelduded for 23rd July. Nepal will take on Qatar in the opener.
Nepali team had already reached Singapore, where the 5-teams qualifier is taking place after completing their 10-days training camp in Malaysia. In Malaysia, Nepal played a couple of T20I and Nepal won both matches. Airee didn’t play both the matches. However, he was active in full training along with the remaining teammates.
Dipendra Airee was injured during fielding in a match of Prime Minister cup, a couple of months ago. Thereafter, he had taken rest from almost 50 days and is now set to make comeback in the game. Dipendra Airee will possibly be included in the starting XI as Nepal’s middle order looked fragile during the bilateral T20 series against Malaysia.
Nepal’s Squad: Paras Khadka (capt), Abhinash Bohara, Basant Regmi, Binod Bhandari, Dipendra Singh Airee, Gyanendra Malla, Karan KC, Lalit Narayan Rajbanshi, Pawan Sarraf, Pradeep Airee, Rohit Kumar Paudel, Sandeep Lamichhane, Sharad Vesawkar, Sompal Kami.
