National cricket team skipper Paras Khadka said his team is raring to go for the upcoming ICC World Cricket League Division-II to be held in Namibia from January 17-24.
“Everyone is working hard and we are very keen to play our very best and win the tournament. If we play to our potential we will come out with flying colours. It’s a major tournament and everyone is really keen to perform and climb up the divisional ladder,” Paras told the ICC ahead of the team’s departure to Nambia from South Africa where they set a six-day preparation camp.
After participating in the ICC World Twenty20 and Division-III title in Malaysia in October, Nepal has been one of the forces to be reckoned with and Paras says he wants to see Nepal keep the momentum.
“This year we played in our first ICC World Twenty20, performed well in the event and once again won the Division-III. Back home, cricket has grown ten folds and has reached another height. We must continue this momentum; our focus is to get into the Pepsi ICC World Cricket League Championship and the ICC Intercontinental Cup,” said the skipper.
The Division-II will see six Associate teams locking horns in Namibia with Canada, Kenya, the Netherlands and Uganda the others teams competing in the tournament.
