Nepal cricket dispute: ICC agrees to form board to regulate Nepali cricket

Posted by Anup Baral September 5th, 2016 :
The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday hinted that it would soon lift the suspension of Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) and bring the Nepal cricket activities back to its track. In a meeting with the Prime Minister Pushpa Kamal Dahal today, the ICC representatives also agreed to form a committee to govern cricket activities here. After the meeting, ICC Chief Executive Officer David Richardson said the next step in the road map toward ending the suspension would be formation of an ICC Advisory Group consisting of various stakeholders of Nepali cricket. The ICC on April 24 had suspended the membership of the Cricket Association of Nepal for engaging in the government interference and failing to conduct free and fair elections. It has been managing the Nepal national cricket team on its own since then. The initial mandate of the Advisory Group would be to review the CAN constitution, he said, adding, “Once we have reviews and amendments, a fresh constitution will facilitate election.”

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.
