InstaReM, an online remittance startup founded by Indian-origin entrepreneur Prajit Nanu, has been announced as the title sponsor for this series by the Singapore Cricket Association (SCA).

Zimbabwe is coming into this series after the Bangladesh tour, where they had participated in a T20I tri-series facing the hosts and Afghanistan. On the other hand, both Singapore and Nepal last featured in the T20 World Cup Qualifier in July where Singapore beat Nepal to win the final.

The visiting teams will face off in the opener on Friday with Singapore taking the field on the very next day to face a Nepal side led by Paras Khadka. There is only one rest day during the series on September 30 after the conclusion of the first round of matches.

The tri-series will end with a Singapore-Zimbabwe fixture on October 3. All the matches of the competition will take place at the Indian Association Ground and will start at 7:30 PM local time (5 PM IST). Singapore Cricket Association has joined hands with Wec Sports to broadcast all the matches live in the country while the SCA’s Facebook and Youtube channel will also stream the series live.

The matches will be telecast live on Willow TV in Canada and Fancode will live stream it in India.
