National cricket team named Kantipur Icon

The national cricket team on Wednesday was declared the winner of the Kantipur Icon – an award from Nepal’s biggest media house.

 

The Kantipur Icon, a biennial award which honours personality or organization which has helped to achieve international recognition or made a valuable contribution in the development of country, carries a cash purse of two million rupees.

 

The six-member jury team of Kantipur Publications decided to honour the national team with the Award. The Award will be handed over during Kantipur’s 22nd anniversary on Thursday.

 

Nepali cricket had marked one of its glorious days in sporting history when it made its appearance in the ICC World Twenty20 that was held in Bangladesh from March to April in 2014.

 

Nepal had defeated Afghanistan and Hong Kong in the World Twenty20 impressing the entire globe with their discipline and hard work on the field. It has also been believed that the achievement from the cricketers has provided a big solace to the Nepali people who have been frustrated by political uncertainties.
