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

Preview:

Both Nepal Police Club and Sudur Paschim Province have had difficult starts to their 2021 Prime Minister Cup campaign. The Sudur Pashchim Province started their campaign against the Bagmati Province, in a game where they came out second best in every department.

Bagmati Province won that game by 180 runs. Nepal Police Club also started their campaign against Bagmati Province, and just like their opposition, they too were handed a thrashing. The men from Bagmati defeated them by 7 wickets. Hence, coming into this game, both teams will be down in confidence but desperate for a win.
