The match holds great value for the Nepal cricket team as they have lost their opening fixture against the Netherlands by six wickets and the second group league match against Sri Lanka was abandoned due to rain.

One more washout would finish their World Cup campaign but the weather forecast looks pleasant for Arnos Vale Ground on Saturday. The Rohit Paudel-led side still have a chance to qualify for the next stage.

Opponent South Africa have already qualified for Super Eight and Nepal need to win their remaining two matches by a big margin. The ace spinner Sandeep Lamichhane, who missed the USA leg due to US visa issues, will be available for the selection on Saturday.

Kingstown Weather Forecast on Saturday:

The weather will be pleasant throughout the day and there are only two per cent chances of precipitation on the match day. The South Africa vs Nepal match will be played with no hindrance. The temperature is expected to be around 27 degrees Celsius with 86% humidity and winds will be blowing at 16 km/h.

Nepal vs South Africa Pitch Report:
