Nepal to host Namibia on April 16, 18 ; ICC sets conditions

Having already lost the opportunity to host Papua New Guinea (PNG) at home, Nepal have given yet another conditions in holding their World Cricket League Championship match against Namibia set for April 16 and 18 next year.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday announced the tie sheet for the third round fixtures but set conditions for Nepal’s home match against Namibia. The release from the ICC said Nepal’s hosting is “subjection to infrastructure, security assessment and approval”.

A similar condition was set for the home game against PNG before Nepal lost the rights and the match was relocated to UAE. Nepal had lost both the matches and now languish at the bottom of the eight-team WCLC table, winless.

The Youth and Sports Ministry is revamping Nepal’s only international standard Tribhuvan University Stadium but the political uncertainties of the country have slowed down the 70-million rupee project.

The WCLC also serves as a gateway to the 2019 50-over World Cup. The top four teams after seven round games will make it to the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers to be held in Bangladesh.
