The batsmen will have to show some great amount of application and things will be difficult for batting as the game progresses. The par score will remain around 160-170 for this match.
Even though they lost their first match in this tournament, still it will be a fantastic move to include more of Lalitpur Patriots players in your respective dream fantasy cricket teams. The conditions at the venue have been brilliant for batting and therefore, it will be a good deal to include as many batters and all-rounders to increase the chances of winning. The likes of Richard Levi, Asela Gunaratne, Oshada Fernando, Kesrick Williams and Sandun Weerakkody will be the must picks.

The Lalitpur Patriots will start as the favourites to win this match. Although, they lost their last game in the ongoing edition of the tournament, but the Lalitpur Patriots won the competition last in 2018. On the other hand, the Pokhara Rhinos will be desperately hoping that the rain gods finally stay away in this match and they get a complete game to showcase their talent and skills in this competition.
For the Lalitpur Patriots, they will be hoping to come up with an improved effort. However, last year’s superb winning campaign will be a great confidence both in the batting and bowling departments this season as well. They will depend a lot on the likes of Pawan Sarraf, Kushal Bhurtel and Oshada Fernando to come good in the batting department. On the other hand, Rijan Dhakal, Lalit Rajbanshi and Yogendra Singh Karki will have to take the responsibility with the ball.
Lalitpur Patriots’ Oshada Fernando has a fine record in T20 cricket with the bat and most importantly, has great amount of experience playing on slow pitches. Oshada has scored more than 400 runs in just 29 T20 matches. The right-handed batsman has notched up two impressive fifties in the shortest format of the game. He will be a key player to watch out for in this edition of the Everest Premier League T20.
For the Lalitpur Patriots, Kushal Bhurtel will be an important performer in this match for his team in the batting department especially due to his incredible record in the T20 format. Kushal has scored more than 270 runs in only 5 innings at a wonderful strike-rate of 140.40. He will now be looking to gain some crucial form before the ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

For the Pokhara Rhinos, it will be really vital to improve their performances both in the batting as well as bowling departments to do well in this season of the tournament. The trio of Richard Levi, Sunil Dhamala and Asela Gunaratne will have to take the responsibility in the batting department and they will be aiming to play their best cricket. On the other side, Kesrick Williams, Sushan Bhari and Bikram Sob will be their important bowlers.
For the Pokhara Rhinos, all-rounder Asela Gunaratne can prove to be really effective both with the bat and ball due to his brilliant record. Gunaratne has scored more than 1300 runs in T20 cricket and has played as many as 75 matches. He has also notched up an impressive total of 9 half-centuries so far in the shortest format. The all-rounder can deliver with the ball as well because he has already picked up 50 wickets.
