Lord's Cricket Stadium is all set to host Nepal's first T20I match since 2015. Nepal will face Netherlands and MCC on a tripleheader day where each team will play twice on the same day.

Nepal will play their first T20 match since 2015 where they take on the Netherlands in the second match and Jayawardene's MCC side in the third encounter.

The match between Nepal and the Netherlands at Lord's, that takes place as part of the MCC Triangular Tournament, has been granted the status of a full International T20 match. Nepal would surely like to repeat its history after beating the Netherlands in the shortest format of the game.

Marylebone Cricket Club side will not only consist of Mahela Jayawardene but also some ravishing Scottish cricketers like Dylan Budge, Alasdair Evans, and Mark Watt who would be a part of MCC's side for the triangular series.

While playing at Lord's cricket ground, it will be a historic moment for the Netherlands as earlier they have shocked everyone after beating England in a last-ball finish.

This triangular series will boost the confidence of Nepal to showcase their skills on a whole new level as they have some promising young cricketing talent like Sandeep Lamichhane.

Having played the IPL 2018 for Delhi Daredevils, Lamichhane would bring his experience in the team.
