Sandeep Lamichhane could exploit the conditions and return with a good haul of wickets.
Lamichhane is a well-known name in the cricketing world and his fast legbreaks with deceptive googly can be hard to score of.
Sandeep Lamichhane in 10 ODIs has 23 wickets and his best bowling performance was 6/16.
The 20-year-old right hand batsman has had a good start to his career in T20I and would like to bring that form in the ODIs.
Aasif Sheikh in 5 T20I has scored 154 runs at an average of 38.5 and strike rate of 138.7.
NEP Playing 11 (Likely)
The opening batsman has the game to score big and also at a decent rate. As the T20 World Cup qualifying matches to get into Super 12 would commence in Oman, this would be an opportunity for Tony to get in form.
Tony Ura in 26 ODIs has scored 718 runs at an average of 27.61. His highest score is 151.
He is the captain of the team and for PNG to challenge Nepal in this series Vala may have to lead with the bat.
Asadollah Vala in 27 ODIs has 739 runs at an average of 27.37.
PNG Playing 11 (Likely)
