USA and Nepal are set to square off in the ICC World Cup 2023 Qualifiers Group A game. In their last games, both teams lost after scoring a handy amount of runs which might have destroyed the morale of both the team’s bowlers. On Tuesday they will test their skills against each other at the Takashinga Cricket Club. Here is Takashinga Sports Club Harare Pitch Report for NEP vs USA ODI World Cup Qualifiers.
Both teams are looking for their first win in the tournament. USA got handed defeat by 2 times world Champions West Indies in their first game where they lost by 39 runs. West Indies put on a total of 297 runs in front of them to chase which they started off well but as the centurion Gajanand Singh the going became tough.
On the other hand, Nepal tasted its defeat against the host Zimbabwe even after scoring 290 runs in the first innings. However, the home team was looking in a hurry hence they finished the game 35 balls prior. Despite carrying a defeat on their name Nepal has taken several positives with them as their batters looked on-song.

Takashinga Sports Club Harare Pitch Report
It’s a high-scoring venue as we saw in the opening game of the World Cup qualifier. Batters enjoy batting at this surface as soon as the ball gets old. Spinners don’t have much on this surface as it is a belter wicket with a decent amount of help for the seamers.
The USA who have already experienced playing at this surface might have an edge over Nepal.
The toss winner should opt to bat first and post a huge total on this deck and then try to restrict the opposition from scoring runs.
