Jul 13, 2019 | CN Staff |

Nepal national cricketers will wear armbands in their sleeves when they play Malaysia in the second Twenty20 International on Sunday as a tribute to the flood-effected people back in their country. 
Reportedly 27 people have already lost their lives due to continuous rain causing massive floods across the country. Talking to cricketingnepal.com in Malaysia, skipper Paras Khadka stated that, they will take on the field with black armbands as a tribute to the flood victims in Nepal.

"Many people have already lost their lives and huge amount of property has been damaged. So we have decided to wear black armbands as a prayer and support," Paras said.

The players will also observe a minute of silence prior to the match. Nepal took lead in the two-match series with seven-wicket victory on Saturday.
