Speaking to ESPNcricinfo on the eve of the crucial fixture, Rohit Paudel exuded optimism for Nepal's prospects in the upcoming clash. Reflecting on the series of upsets witnessed in this T20 World Cup edition, Paudel highlighted how the confidence of the Nepali team has been buoyed by the success of ICC Associate members against established cricketing nations. Drawing inspiration from these unexpected victories, Paudel views Nepal's encounter against Sri Lanka as an opportunity rather than a daunting challenge. He emphasized the team's thorough preparations, indicating their readiness to take on the one-time World T20 champions with full force.

Paudel's confidence stems from the collective efforts and dedication exhibited by the team over the past year.

As they gear up for the encounter at the Central Broward Regional Park in Florida, Paudel instills faith in his team's ability to deliver a memorable performance on the grand stage of the ICC T20 World Cup.

"If you see in this World Cup, you'll see that the Associate team is beating Test-playing countries. So, it is a motivation for all of us, especially moving forward to tomorrow's game. So as a team, we believe that we are going to win tomorrow and the way we have been preparing for the last couple of months and the way we have been playing cricket for the last one and a half years, I think the belief is always there in the team and we are looking forward to tomorrow's game," said Nepal captain Rohit Paudel in a recent interview.
