Nepal’s influential all rounder Nary Thapa has lost her place in the ACC Women’s Premier after the left hander fractured her leg during the Women’s National Cricket Tournament final match against Nepal APF Club.
Nary had sustained the injury during the match against Region-IV (Bhairahawa) few days earlier but still went on to play the semi-final.
On Monday, Nary delivered just two balls before limping off. Nary was taken to nearby Vayodha Hospital and it was found there that Nary has broken her left leg bone. Nepalgunj went on to lose the title match to defending champions Nepal APF Club.
The injury will take at least two months to recover meaning she would miss the ACC Women’s Premier beginning in Thailand from February 11-18.
“Her injury is called second metatarsal fracture which will take more than two months of time to treat. Even if her treatment is conducted early, she would need more time to recuperate. I don’t think she would be able to compete in any tournament inside two months,” said Dr Shreel Bhagat, currently a phsyiotherpaist in the Cricket Association of Nepal.
Former national team skipper Nary is one of the most influential all rounder in the national women’s team who is capable of both bat and ball. Nary became the first Nepali woman to slam a century in the Women’s National and went on to bag player of the series and best batswoman of the tournament.
