The ACC Premiere League 2014 heads into its final day with a multitude of possibilities still open for the top three teams in the table.
Match scheduled to begin at 10:00 local time 02:00 GMT, 7:30 India time.
As Afghanistan brace up to take on the challenge of Nepal at the Kinrara Academy Oval, Kuala Lumpur, weather also is set to play a crucial role in determining the fate of the tournament.
An overcast sky with possible showers is predicted for all the three matches in the Malaysian capital even as Oman, Afghanistan and Nepal are tied on points.
In the previous round of matches the Afghan boys comfortably rolled over Oman with Noor Ali Zadran’s 67 at the top of the order while chasing Oman’s 186. Nepal also come on the back of a win as they made light work of Hong Kong and romped home with a 7 wicket win.
With both sides coming into the game on top form, the contest is likely to be a humdinger and the winner should determine who tops the table in the 2014 edition. Oman, though, third on the table will look to topple U.A.E in an attempt to surprise everyone and leap to the top.
The toss, team news and squads will be updated here shortly.

Nepal will be looking for a top-notch performance from Medium-pacer Sompal Kami, who has seen considerable success in the tournament, while Afghanistan will turn to their array of stars who have gained considerable experience from their recent international outing in the Asia Cup.
Samiullah Shenwari’s all round skills should tip the scales in favor of the Afghanistan team, but Nepal will do all they can to seal the deal with a table-topping performance. Let’s just hope the weather gods stay away from this blockbuster of the associates.
