Match Details:

The 18th match of the Nepal One Day 2021 will be played between Bagmati Province and Lumbini Province at the Mulpani Cricket Ground in Kathmandu.

This match is scheduled to start at 09:00 AM Local Time (08:45 AM IST).


Two of the most formidable teams from Group B will lock horns at the Mulpani Cricket Ground in Kathmandu tomorrow. One one hand will be the Bagmati Province, who haven’t put a foot wrong in this competition. They have won all of their 3 games so far.

Challenging them will be Lumbini Province, who have had both ups and down, but certainly the former more often than the latter. After a defeat against Nepal Province Club, they came back in style when they absolutely thrashed the Sudur Paschim Province. This match will be a very exciting watch for the neutrals.
