This will be the only match of the day in the tournament and also the third match for both these teams in the competition.
Both these teams are coming into this game after witnessing different fortunes so far in the ongoing edition of the tournament. Things have not fallen into the right place for the Pokhara Rhinos in this edition of the Everest Premier League T20 2021 as both of their matches have been washed out due to persistent rain. On the other hand, the Kathmandu Kings XI defeated the defending champions Lalitpur Patriots in their opening game but then their recent match also got abandoned.
This is the fourth edition of the Everest Premier League T20 and the last tournament was held in 2018. All the 19 matches of this edition of the competition will be played at the same venue which is at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur in Nepal. It will be important for both these teams to play with their best of abilities.
Fixture Name: Match 9, Pokhara Rhinos vs Kathmandu Kings XI
Competition: Everest Premier League T20
Date: 28 September
Time: 12 PM IST
Ground: Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground, Kirtipur, Nepal
Pitch Report: The conditions at the Tribhuvan University International Cricket Ground were helpful for both the pacers and spinners to a great extent as seen in the last game. 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 170-180 with the dew factor coming into play as the game progresses.
It will be really important from the fantasy cricket point of view to include more of Kathmandu Kings XI players to increase the chances of winning big contests. The conditions are expected to suit the batting and thus, picking more of batsmen and all-rounders will be a calculative move. The likes of Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Richard Levi, Ryan Burl, Shahid Afridi and Sandeep Lamichhane will be the must picks for this contest.
WICKET-KEEPERS: Rahmanullah Gurbaz
BATSMEN: Richard Levi, Sunil Dhamala, Lokesh Bahadur Bam
ALL-ROUNDERS: Ryan Burl, Asela Gunaratne, Shahid Afridi, Gulsan Jha
BOWLERS: Sandeep Lamichhane, Jitendra Mukhiya, Kesrick Williams
The Kathmandu Kings XI will surely have the upper hand in this exciting contest as they won their first match against defending champions Lalitpur Patriots. Kathmandu Kings XI will be the favourites to win this game. On the other hand, the Pokhara Rhinos also have the ability to pose tough challenges in front of the opposition. Pokhara Rhinos will be hoping to register their opening win this season.
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.
Pokhara Rhinos’ pace bowler Kesrick Williams will be a crucial clog in the bowling attack for his side in this Everest Premier League T20 2021. The Caribbean pace bowler has the experience of playing T20 cricket over the years in different conditions and also at the international level. He has nearly picked up as many as 150 wickets at an economy of 8.68.

The Kathmandu Kings XI will be hoping that both their batsmen and bowlers continue their good form from the previous win against Lalitpur Patriots. The likes of Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Ryan Burl and Amit Shrestha will be their important batsmen in this match and they will be looking to perform with the best of their capabilities. On the other hand, Sandeep Lamichhane, Jitendra Mukhiya and Gulshan Jha will be the main bowlers.
For the Kathmandu Kings XI, all-rounder Ryan Burl looked in a fabulous touch with the bat and ball against the defending champions Lalitpur Patriots bowling attack. Burl played an excellent knock of 73 runs off only 34 balls that included 7 sixes and 3 fours and most importantly stayed unbeaten till the end to help his team pick up their first win of the season. He also delivered amazingly well with the ball picking two crucial wickets and gave away just 20 runs in his four overs.
Kathmandu Kings XI’s captain Sandeep Lamichhane has performed sensationally well in the T20 format in the recent while except for the opening match in this tournament.
