Nepal in danger of suspension

Nepal are in danger of facing the suspension from the International Cricket Council (ICC) after the country’s cricket governing body failed to appoint a full-time paid administrator.

The ICC had already asked the Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) to hire a paid staff in its last meeting early this year but after it failed to do so, CAN  will get a formal warning at the ICC Annual Conference in Melbourne on June 24.

According to an ICC document seen by Nepal has fallen foul of administration statute 2.1, which relates to having a full-time paid administrator. CAN recently advertise for a Chief Executive Officer and Finance Manager in national newspapers and is yet to move ahead with the process. The application deadline for both the posts ends on June 20.

After the formal warning from the world cricket’s governing body, Nepal will get another year to settle the affairs or else face suspension.

While Nepali cricket is in turmoil with a majority of CAN’s top brass charge-sheeted for corruption in the construction of Mulpani Cricket Stadium, it has also hit Nepal’s preparation for the upcoming ICC World Cricket League Division-III which will be held in Uganda in September/October.

Because of the ongoing corruption cases and the turmoil, Nepal has already lost a chance to host the Division-III tournament which was almost a done deal for Nepal. The ICC had proposed Nepal to host the Division-III but later handed the tournament to Uganda that coincided with the ignition of corruption case that surrounded CAN.
