With country left in turmoil following the unofficial blockade imposed by India resulting in fuel crisis, the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) has resorted with a new-model Super League Tournament that will serve as selection for the upcoming ICC World Cricket League Championship matches against Papua New Guinea (PNG).
Nepal are taking on PNG in their two matches under the WCL on November 16 and 18 but CAN was not able to hold Senior National One Day Cricket
Tournament due to political turmoil. It was later pushed to October 11 start but the fuel crisis in the country has not helped CAN as well.
Already criticized for not being able to host tournaments at different time frame, CAN finally decided to accumulate 60 players from different cricket development regions and contracted players under CAN and host a round robin league cricket tournament for selection.
23 players are currently under CAN and 37 players will be picked up from the nine development regions. Each team will play five matches in the preliminary round before 30 players will be selected for the second round that will consists three or four matches.
Tribhuvan University Stadium grounds and Pulchowk Engineering College grounds will hold the matches.
