CAN President Tanka Angbuhang have slammed the decision made by NPL governing council calling it unauthentic and against the development of cricket.
A majority of members from the governing council, formed to look after the smooth functioning of NPL, resigned on Tuesday and an official press release from CAN said it has withdrawn the ownership of NPL.
“The governing council itself has made a one-sided decision. If the president itself is unaware about the decision then it cannot be an official one. I don’t see any wrong-doing in organising the NPL. The NPL will be successfully held and no one can stop it,” said Angbuhang.
Angbuhang said the cricket governing body is doing nothing but involving itself in someone’s legs. “This has been the country’s major problem. You don’t do anything and stop the one who is doing something very good,” the president said adding he will further study the issue and move accordingly.
“I have only received the news about pulling out the ownership and the issues governing council has made public. I will further learn about the matter and take it seriously,” Angbuhang told cricketingnepal.com from Dhangadhi.
National Sports Council Member Secretary Yubaraj Lama and Angbuhang are in Dhangadhi to inaugurate the much-awaited cricket tournament of Nepal. On the opening day, Paras Khadka-led Vishal Warriors are taking on Sagarmatha Legends – skippered by Binod Bhandari.
