Ireland and Nepal will play their final Oman Quadrangular Series 2022 match against each other.

IRE vs NPL Team Previews
Ireland has a full-strength team for this match and we are sure it would not want to lose against Nepal under any circumstances. In fact, even if the match is close, Ireland will be disappointed. Paul Stirling, Andre Balbirnie, Gareth Delany, and Curtis Campher lead the batting.
This is a strong lineup that managed to win a series in the West Indies just a few weeks back. The conditions in Oman are not their liking but we still think that the players will be able to bounce back strongly.
Mark Adair, Joshua Little, and Craig Young will lead the fast-bowling duties while Simi Singh and Goerge Dockrell will take care of the spin. This is one of the best bowling attacks that Ireland has had in a long time.
It should run through Nepal in our opinion.

Nepal is not a team that you want to take lightly but it does seem as if the team is struggling to get enough quality through its ranks, particularly in the batting department. Gyanendra Malla and Dipendra Singh Airee are the two mainstays of this batting lineup (as they have been for quite a while).
We are not sure if the other players in this lineup are going to be able to put up much of a fight against the Ireland bowling attack.
The bowling lineup features Sandeep Lamicchane, famous for his exploits in T20 leagues over the world, but once again, there is not much depth. It is rare for a bowler to be able to win a match in his four overs and so Nepal cannot just depend on Lamichhane to do everything for them.
This lack of depth is going to cost Nepal heavily in this contest.

Pitch and Conditions
The conditions are the great leveler in this contest. They favor Nepal a lot more than Ireland but the quality of players in the Ireland team is much better. A flat batting track with a bit of low-bounce and not too much pace to work with is in store.
Something around 160 should be seen as par batting first.
