Pakistan vs Nepal Today Match Prediction Preview:

Welcome to the PAK vs NEP Today Prediction curated by Kheltalk cricket experts. In the opening encounter of Asia Cup 2023, Pakistan will be locking horns with Nepal.

Pakistan are coming on the back of a 3-0 ODI series win against Afghanistan in Sri Lanka. They would be pretty confident ahead of their fixture against Nepal and should be able to comfortably win against Nepal.

The two sides have never locked horns with each other previously and this will be their first game. No doubt, this is a big opportunity for the Nepalese cricketers as they will be up against a formidable team in world cricket.

We can expect an absolute crackerjack of a contest in this match as both the sides would be aiming to bag the top honours in this match at Multan.
