ICC, Nepal govt reach deal to form revamped cricket board in Nepal

Posted by Anup Baral September 4th, 2016 : A visiting delegation of cricket’s world governing body ICC and the government of Nepal have reached an agreement to work towards setting up a revamped cricket board in Nepal. The ICC three-member delegation, led by CEO David Richardson, met Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal ‘Prachanda’ at his office in Baluwatar today to discuss a proposal presented by Nepal’s National Sports Council to form a cricket board in Nepal. Also present during the meet were NSC Member Secretary Keshav Bista, Sports Minister Daljeet Shripaili and former CAN CEO Bhawana Ghimire. The ICC accepted the proposal as it felt that the new structure will discourage political interference in cricket, Bista told Onlinekhabar.
According to sources the ICC is likely to form an advisory committee with 5-7 members today itself. The members will represent different groups of the cricket community in Nepal, it is learnt. The committee will work on amending CAN’s statute, and conduct elections in three months.

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
