International Cricket Council (ICC) and Nepal Cricket Talks

Posted by Anup Baral July 29, 2016 :

Football and Cricket are the two most popular sports in the country. Of late, the Nepali national teams in both the sport have also been winning accolades at home and abroad. Only recently, Nepali national cricket team defeated Namibia twice at home turf in the ICC World Cricket League Championship. It was a back-to-back victory for the home team in front of a full house TU cricket ground, with a significant century by captain Paras Khadka in the second match. Nepali national football team too only recently won two regional tournaments after a long hiatus of 23 years. A comparatively young side, thanks to the omission of several senior players on the charge of match-fixing, won the prestigious Bangabandhu gold cup in Bangladesh in January earlier this year. The team with almost the same set of players followed it up with the coveted gold medal in the 12th South Asian Games a month later in February.
