Nepal leave for India tour

The national cricket team on Sunday left for India for a 15-day training camp in a bid to fine-tune their preparation for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20 Qualifiers beginning from July 9 in Ireland and Scotland.

 

After the facilities at home were destroyed by the April 25 and continuous aftershocks prevented the cricketers from smooth preparation, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is helping Nepal to prepare for one of the most important cricket tournaments for them.

 

The expenses for the tournament will be borne by BCCI who had shown commitment to help Nepal after the massive earthquake which left Nepal devastated killing more than 8500 and leaving thousands homeless.

 

While Nepal will undergo training sessions at the Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association Stadium in Dharmashala, they will also play few practice matches against the local teams. They will then return from India on June 20 before leaving for England for second phase of training.

 

Nepal are also scheduled to play three Twenty20 matches against Netherlands in their hometown before joining the World Twenty20 Qualifiers.
