Legendary Lara tweets he is coming to Nepal

Just 10 days ago, Nepali cricket fans were euphoric with the national team’s success in the ICC World Cricket League Division-III title in Bermuda and now they have a huge thing to cheer for – the arrival of West Indies cricket legend Brian Lara. 

Yes it’s official.

Lara on Wednesday 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 …”, Lara wrote on his twitter account on Wednesday. 

The tweet from Lara is not the first one for or relating to Nepal. 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 Division-III that was held from April 28 to May 5 in Bermuda.

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 where the legendary batsman was surrounded by two Nepali fans with one of them holding the national flag. Lara hailed Nepal as “cricketchamps” in his last twitter post but the 44 year old did not disclose the exact date of his visit. 

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.
