Court issues stay order, fear of more chaos

The crisis over Nepali cricket turned another chapter after the Supreme Court on Monday issued a stay order on the Cabinet decision to suspend the Cricket Association of Nepal and forming an ad-hoc committee to replace it.

The government, on November 6, had suspended the cricket governing body and replaced it with a Binay Raj Pandey-led three-member ad hoc committee on a recommendation from the Commission for the Investigation of Abuse of Authority (CIAA) who had filed a graft charges against 10 CAN officials and deemed the entire committee incapable to run cricket in the country.
The suspended CAN had filed a case against the Cabinet decision seeking its reinstatement and rescind the Pandey-led committee.
While the attempts from both the committee to show their activity, it has created an apprehensive environment. Recently, members from both the committees turned up at the Tribhuvan International Airport to welcome the ACC U-19 Premier second place finishing Nepali team, a turn of event that was followed by a chaotic environment create during the Wai Wai U-19 Women’s National Cricket Tournament.
In the pretext of a transitional period, the Senior National Cricket Tournament, originally scheduled to begin coming Friday has also been called off.
The ad-hoc committee is yet to come into complete operation with its President Pandey currently in Sri Lanka to attend Nepal’s Twenty20 International Series against Hong Kong. Pandey was invited by Sri Lanka Cricket Cricket under the capacity of CAN President.
The crisis can only die down if only one body exists in cricket.
