TOSS: Jersey have won the toss and have elected to bowl first.

Nepal currently have three points from their five games and Jersey have just two from their four. This is a crucial game for both the teams as they can keep themselves in the competition only if they manage to win the game. It will be downward slope for whichever team that loses as it becomes impossible to make it to the top half after this. Jersey will feel that they have the edge in this game as they have played a game lesser and a win against Nepal will give them the edge going into the last few sets of games.

Nepal were comprehensively beaten in their previous game against Papua New Guinea (PNG) as they did not even manage to reach three figures. Their skipper Paras Khadka will be one of the key players for them and he will look to perform in this crucial match. Jersey will have to find inspiration from somewhere and put up a good show and keep their qualifications hopes alive.
