Legendary West Indies batsman Brian Lara has tweeted once again on Nepal showing his eagerness to visit Nepal. On Tuesday Lara tweeted saying he want to visit Nepal on 11th and 12th November this year.
The left hander from Trinidad and Tobago had shown a keen interest in Nepal and its cricket while he was in Bermuda to watch the World Cricket League Division-III that was held from April 28 to May 5 this year in Bermuda.
He tweeted like this about 11 hours ago, “My Nepalese friends what about two day visit between the first and second test match between West Indies and India? Dates 11th and 12th November.”
Further he tweeted about six hours ago like this “Wheels now turning to bring about my first visit to Nepal. Looking forward to meeting all cricketers. What about a Visa? Will check on that. ”
Lara has earlier posted on his twitter account that he is planning to visit Nepal this year which he said as “amustdo”. “Up @ 3am in the morning going to read a little about Nepal, going there is on my bucket list. This year …”,
Just a day ahead of Nepal’s final against Uganda in Division-III, Lara had tweeted: “All the best 2 Nepal in the finals may the best team win. I’m a big fan of urs n Uganda’s cricket.” Nepal went on to win the match five wickets for their third World Cricket League title.
Lara had posted a photograph in his twitter account during Division-III where the legendary batsman was surrounded by two Nepali fans with one of them holding the national flag. Lara hailed Nepal as “cricket champs” but the 44 year old did not disclose the exact date of his visit that time.
Lara is the third legendary cricketer of the world cricket to visit Nepal after India’s 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev and batting maestro Sunil Gavaskar. Lara holds the world record of the highest score in Tests (400 not out against England in 2004) and is one of the best batsmen the world has ever seen.
