According to the manager of Nepali national cricket team, Indian coach, Apurva Subodhbhai Desai, will arrive in Nepal at 13th August and join the coaching staff of Nepal National cricket team as a batting consultant. He will be training the team from August 14.

Desai is joining Nepal’s national men cricket team for the upcoming 2018 ICC Asia Cup Qualifiers starting from August 29, 2018 in Malaysia.

While the Cricket Association of Nepal remains suspended, it is yet to be known of Desai’s salary and tenure. The list of players for the upcoming camp is yet to be revealed. Desai’s coming to Nepal’s turf is seen positively when the national team has been struggling with batting since a long time.

Desai is a BCCI level C coach and former first class cricketer from Gujarat. He has also been coach of Indian cricketer, Dinesh Karthik. Nepal can expect a lot from him and need to take most of him in his short tenure. He was also part of Kooh Sports, a sports education company which is based out of Mumbai as performance director cricket. He is also a talent scout for various IPL teams.
